About this artwork

Magnificent in scale and lavish in decoration, this punch bowl represents the English response to the High Rococo style of French porcelain at Sèvres. With a dense, dark blue ground color and lavish, applied gold frames surrounding the three bird-filled cartouches, it was intended to compete with French imports of the highest quality.
