Peter and the Wolf Soup Plate

China
Porcelain
Circa 1740

Chinese export plate with a central en grisaille portrait of John Cecil, Lord Burghley (1674-1721) with an inscription PETRUS DE WOLFF PETR FIL. The design source was an engraving after a portrait by William Wissing’s 1686 portrait of Lord Burghley.

Why we love it: There is nothing more special than a boy with his dog.  This even rings true in the 1740’s.
