The original owner of this service is said to be Philip Bromfield J.P.,  Captain of the armed East Indaiman 'St. Anne' who commanded 'The Salisbury' at Canton in 1771. He was elected elder Brother of the Corporation of Trinity House and played a role in thwarting the Nore mutiny in 1797. The service remained in the family until 1968, when a part was dispersed in our London rooms. However, as discussed in David Howard and John Ayers, China for the West, Vol. I, cat. no. 344, where a plate from the same service is illustrated, stylistically the service pre-dates Bromfield's visits to Canton, unless he he ordered it for a member of his family while he was a young man. 
There are two services painted with the 'Don Quixote' pattern published, the earlier service produced around 1742, the decoration of that service faithfully copying an engraving by J. Folkema (1692-1767). This engraving derives from another engraving by B. Picart (1673-1733), which was after a painting by C. Coypel. The present example is from the second iteration of the service, circa 1750, which was redrawn by a Chinese artist as evident in the rendering of the background rockwork and trees. It is interesting to note that the Mottahedeh porcelain reproduction that accompanies this lot is a direct copy of the present platter.
