the scene depicts the historian and statesman of the Song dynasty Sima Guang (1019–1086) rescuing his drowning friend from a larger jar, throwing stones to break it. The story was popular in the seventeenth century and Meissen reproduced the pattern in around 1730. The English Chelsea factory produced the pattern, becoming known as “Hob in the Well” around 1755.
