This fluted dish was most likely used as a dinner or dessert dish. The gillyflower pattern which decorates the interior derives from a pattern by the French manufactory, Chantilly, dating to the 1760s and 1770s. Worcester used this popular pattern from around 1770 to 1785 and it is found in both painted and transfer-printed versions in underglaze blue; the pattern on the MMFA piece appears to be a transfer-print.
