'Commissioned by His Highness, of Auspicious nature; an intimate of the King the crown of … Amir al-Hajj, Hajj Rahim Vali …'

The inscription on the base says:  ‘Work of Muhammad 1281 AH (1864-5 AD)’

Bearing close resemblance to a dish from the Jean Soustiel collection, Paris, this dish is a fascinating example of cultural transference. The pseudo-Chinese decoration, comprising a pagoda within lush vegetation, combined with a European-like floral border, testifies to the influence of Chinese iconography on English ceramic production in the nineteenth century, notably Staffordshire potteries, which in turn were used by Qajar ceramicists as models (see J. Soustiel, La Céramique Islamique: Le Guide du Connaisseur, Switzerland, 1985, p.306, no.342).
