The Basket Pattern :
The basket basket pattern or flower basket pattern originated in China and represented abundance. It is frequently found on Kangxi blue and white as well as famille verte porcelain. It occurs on Dutch decorated Chinese porcelain from about 1720. The Dresden Palace has a piece which as added to the inventory of 1723. It is probably the most common of all Dutch decorated porcelain designs and is often used as part of the decorative scheme. It was a design with longevity, indeed an English saltglazed stoneware jug with this design enamelled in Holland is dated 1773. The Dutch also used it on Delft ware, using the design with Petit Feu enamels.
