This dish was decorated in the London studio of James Giles, and is characteristic of Giles's exotic birds surrounded by clusters of fruit and brightly colored insects. This form is referred to as a "junket dish" suggesting that it was used to serve a type of pudding. As the term is also associated with merrymaking and feasting, the dish may have been used at banquet festivities.
