During the eighteenth century the trade of Chinese porcelain was controlled by the English East India Company. The Company’s employees were allowed to trade privately and often commissioned pieces decorated with European subjects or services painted with coats of arms. This plate is decorated with the Arms of Thomas, 1st Lord Trevor (1658-1730) and his wife, Anne Weldon.
