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.

The Fitzhugh china pattern originates from three representatives of two generations of Fitzhughs of the English branch who became sea captains and even a Director of the British East India Company. Senior officers of the EIC were allowed to trade on their own account, and during the period 1704-1790s they shipped much of the pattern to England. For more information see an article by J.B.S. Holmes in the American magazine “Antiques”, January 1966, pp.130-1; also Spode’s Willow Pattern and other Designs after the Chinese, Ch. 14, The Chinese Trophies and Fitzhugh Patterns, Robert Copeland, 1990.
