shape dating from circa 1770-80. It is
exquisitely decorated in the Japanese style with a pattern known as the Jabberwocky

dragon-beast that adorns the piece. On this hand painted antique the
usual complementary large fiery pine cone motif, forming part of the
design, has been replaced by a striking stylized red flower head.
