A pretty and well engraved and printed chinoiserie fantasy landscape in the manner of the famous Willow Pattern..There are many tales of the origins of the Willow Pattern which was reputedly designed by Thomas Minton one being that it was copied from an original chinese design. The love birds did not appear on the early english examples and the bridge with the lovers not on the alleged chinese example so this may be a copy of the chinese original should one exist. Wood named this pattern 'Chinease', rather unusually for they normally named patterns after authors.

Verso near perfectly clean, unmarked, Wood's familiar ladder pattern.
