A fine example of ‘clobbered’ ware, meaning the European additions in gold & colored enamels to enhance the Chinese original. This was often done when the piece was new, as a coloured & gilt piece had a higher value than the standard blue & white imported piece. Holland & England were both prolific ‘cloberers’.
