About this object

Decorated with Chinoiserie scenes in tooled gold on a white ground. In the center appear two Chinese children, one pushing another in a cart. To the sides, tree branches, one with long leaves, come together with the roots below to form a frame around these figures. A small Chinese house stands in the distance. Silhouetted views of a Chinese landscape, replete with houses and a bridge, decorate the plate's border.
