3” length of black japanned papier-mâché. Chinoiserie motif in gold depicting three figure at a table in a garden. A few minor flakes to the gold only. The Chinese subject is a reflection of the times when domestic industries competed with Chinese imports replicating and in some cases, laboriously reinventing Chinese industrial secrets. That was most dramatically shown by the porcelain industry which was able recreate and surpass the Chinese in quality. Notably, as here, early export porcelain copied Chinese scenes for decoration.
