This dish is part of a thirty-seven piece dessert service commissioned by the Cardiganshire landowner, Thomas Johnes (1748-1816). It cost £63 and was the most expensive of its kind produced at Derby during the late eighteenth century. Each piece was painted with a view of the newly-built house and picturesque landscape at Johnes's estate at Hafod.
