A rare famille rose pear shaped coffee pot and cover decorated on each side with a panel of Europeans within elaborate diaper borders, the handle and spout in iron red and the knop of the cover as a Buddhistic lion.

This rare pot has a European couple, which have traditionally been called ‘Governor Duff and Wife’ after Diederik Durven, Dutch Governor-General of Batavia, but there is no evidence for this and it is most likely taken from a series of generic prints. Other examples of this shape are recorded with different images of Europeans.
