The tour-de-force painting of a continuous landscape on this bowl shows the level of quality that Schwarzlot porcelain was capable of reaching at Du Paquier. The name of the artist is unknown, but his hand is evident on other pieces painted with similar Dutch or Italian views. Monochrome landscapes, whether painted in black, purple, or red, appear to have been popular at the manufactory in the 1730s.
