This Chinese export punch-bowl shows half-built ships set in an imaginary Chinese landscape. It is inscribed: 'Success to Mr Barnard's Yard', within an Adamesque oval panel surmounted by medallions and ribbons. The outside is painted in grisaille with line drawings of ships in frame and ready for fitting out. They represent a ketch in frame and a mid-18th century merchant vessel& the buildings, scenery and river are Chinese additions to the design. There is a finely painted gold trellis border around the rim, above an egg and dart border, a husk-chain pattern round the foot.
