Porcelain decorated in underglaze cobalt blue, overglaze famille rose enamels and gold

China - Qing dynasty, Qianlong period (1736-1795), ca. 1745

The image depicted on this bowl may have been inspired by a scene from William Hogarth’s The Rake’s Progress II: The Tavern Scene from June 1735.

In this particular scene the protagonist, Tom Rakewell, is in the Rose Tavern in Drury Lane. While there, he enjoys the attention of a young woman, who surreptiously steals his watch.
