The decoration on this transfer-printed serving dish is referred to as "Chinoiserie." It is an English version of Chinese designs and was applied with a tissue-printed transfer. It was made in the Enoch Wood factory in the Staffordshire district in England between 1790 and 1820. The motifs include pagodas, flowers, and two Chinese male figures. It was given to Memorial Hall by Eunice K. Brown, a descendant of the Nims family.
