In the 1960s and 70s we all complained bitterly about Japanese copies of British motorcycles. Go back 200 years and we have Worcester (and most other European porcelain factories) making blatant copies of porcelain imported from Japan. I have to admit to this being one of my favourite "Worcester" patterns, it is just so exuberant.
