Note: The asymmetrical shapes and natural world ornament of the rococo were quite fashionable in Chinese export porcelain for several decades of the 18th century. Originally inspired by European silver, the forms were then made in European faience and Chinese export. More rococo sauce tureens are known than soup tureens, which are relatively rare.
