This dish is an interesting document for the historic confusion between Korean and Japanese ceramic patterns. It bears the Chantilly factory name in the mark and is decorated with a Japanese Kakiemon pattern, but the design is described as Korean. This follows an eighteenth-century French practice, as the Prince du Condé described his Kakiemon wares as Korean and had them copied at his porcelain factory at Chantilly.
