Punch bowl

Chinese, for British market

Not on view

The armorial, depicting Saint George trampling the French flag, was devised by the Anti-Gallican Society, an organization formed in London in 1745 to discourage the importation of French goods. This European topical motif is complemented by finely painted Chinese genre scenes enclosed in frames of Meissen derivation.
