The Chinese style of decoration identifies this bowl as a product made for the markets in England, Holland, France, and Germany. Here, kakiemon potters rearranged the Chinese literati motifs of the plum, pine, and bamboo. Such kakiemon ware inspired domestic porcelain production in Europe in the 1700s–1800s.
