    During the last decades of the 18th century, a new taste emerged in Europe among the newly-rich commissioning and buying Chinese porcelain to decorate their houses and accompany entertaining their guests. Porcelain with the 'tobacco leaf' motifs was among the most popular and constitutes a family of motifs produced between 1765 to 1795. For a similar 'tobacco leaf' dinner service, see P.L.Debomy, Tobacco leaf and Pseudo: a tentative inventory, Sevres, 2013, p.107.

    See a similar part set of twenty-four 'tobacco leaf' plates and soup plates, Qianlong, which was sold at Sotheby's New York, 20-22 April 2018, lot 1082.
