public_access_description
As Chinese trade with Europe increased from the 18th century, European traders often commissioned Chinese craftsmen to produce goods to bring back to Europe, and this dish is one of such items. These commissions formed some of the earlier modern Chinese depictions of foreigners. The representation is usually not a caricature, as the craftsmen's main concern was to reproduce the design they've been given as accurately as they could. The bawdy decoration on this double-sided dish is based on the European print Perrette et le pot au lait.
