Fitzhugh pattern

Early formalized four paneled decoration on Chinese export porcelain. Named after a director of the British East India Company who is thought to have ordered a dinner service with this pattern first. The most detailed seems to be dating to the last decades of the 18th century. It occurs in several different colors, among which underglaze blue and white is the most common. Of the enameled varieties, green seems to have been the most popular.
