Tobacco leaf pattern

Chinese export porcelain pattern in Famille rose over-glaze enamels, from c. 1800 made for the European and American markets. Usually in combination with underglaze blue, and often with the addition of gold. It probably does not depict tobacco leaves, but multicolored tropical foliage with hibiscus and passion flowers.
