"Dutch doré "In July 1723, Mademoiselle Bassetouche supplied the king with a set of 12 slop basins
of Chinese blue and white porcelain decorated in Holland in red and gold with
the earliest datable examples of the bet loved and most popular Dutch pattern :
the basket of flowers and fisherman.
Both motifs are well known in Chinese decoration and had been adapted for Delftware and tile decoration.
The bowls were listed in the Japanese section, Chapter V, N:91+,
where they were mistaken for Imari.....
The bowl illustrated in Fig. 16. with the same pattern, originally came into the collection
in 1727-8 and was entered in the Red Chinese section in Chapter III,
Table Services, Tea Things & All Kinds of Accessories, N:113 (and upwards arrow)
as a slop bowl.
It has the addition of green and black enamels
seen in the leaves in the basket and in the landscape with the fisherman.
The drawing is less stiff and a pair of bees has been introduced by the ribbons on the handle of the basket,
The red hatched leaves against the gold ground separating the panels enrich the effect.
The pattern was used for about 50 years, with varying quality."
