Chinese famille rose Pronk'Arbor' plate, Qianlong (1736-95), decorated in the centre with a topiary garden scene, the border with shaped-cartouches containing moths, butterflies, flowers and fruit against a geometric ground with shells, the reverse with iron-red and purple lambrequin border, diameter: 10.2in. (26cm); condition: usual slight wear to enamels. Jorg has identified the arbor scene as the Pronk's fourth and last design (drawn in 1737) for the VOC.
Due to the high cost of producing such designs in coloured enamels, Jorg estimates that only three large dinner services of this design may have been produced. For further information see: C. Jorg,'Pronk porcelain: Porcelain after designs by Cornelis Pronk', pp.
