Rock I

Pattern Category: Based on Chinese Originals

Object Type: Wares for Breakfast and Tea


  • Diameter: 5.4 in inches

Source: Chinese Original


The Rock pattern is an early design inspired by a Chinese export pattern painted on porcelain.  Rock I was developed along with the Mandarin pattern.  It differs from Mandarin in that there are only 3 branches on the willow tree whereas the tree in the Mandarin pattern has 4. The pattern is pre-1800 and is shown here on an earthenware saucer with gilded rim.   The border copies some of the elements of the Chinese original but not all.  The border is also used on Forest Landscape I and II.
