Of interest is the influence of this Chinese” petaled” style on English ceramics - most notably Worcester,
who produced a similarly gilt petal-paneled group in soft paste versions from c1768-1790.
A very early (1768-70) example with narrow gilt petals and quite large flowers is
pictured in Worcester Porcelain, Zorensky Collection, p. 165, Pl.162,
being described as “clumsy” with the petal patterns as almost an afterthought.
From c1770, it was also used in the plain gilt, known as “Gold Queen’s”,
which was quite popular at the James Giles workshop.
As well, the gilt petals were used as above,
as framework for polychrome factory decorations, and for “outside decorations”.
Caughley, Lowestoft and Chamberlain’s also produced wares in this pattern.
A rare underglaze blue Worcester version occurs about 1770
