At the beginning of the eighteenth century, the Schenk printmakers produced large series of prints in Amsterdam among others under the title: New Chinese, who were drawn with great effort and brought to light, by P: Schenk 1702.

These prints, which were in great demand throughout Europe, were intended as a source of inspiration for painters on earthenware. These prints were copied frequently not only in Delft, but also in Meissen.

This tray, a plate with legs to serve as a tray, was created freely after these prints in the mid-eighteenth century. The chinoiserie decor of five long Chinese people in a fenced garden by a gate reflects the taste of that time. The Eastern atmosphere was beautifully imitated in Delft and found its way throughout the century. These representations were painted on plates, plaques and here on a tray.
