 As a rule, the English and European porcelain manufacturers and painters took their inspirations from silver,

as well as Chinese and Japanese porcelains.  On some very rare occasions, the Chinese copied the English and 

European wares – usually in hard paste, as this example, but occasionally in soft paste.  In the case of the latter,

 it is often quite difficult to determine the Chinese origin.
