Porcelain imports from Japan dwindled from 1725 to 1745. Less expensive Chinese imports became available via the East India Company (VOC). The patterns were obviously very popular with the gentry, and Worcester and other manufactories took it upon themselves to copy them assiduously. The Japanese Fan, Old Mosaic (or Mosaick), Queen's, Rich Queen's, Brocade and others are all direct copies of Arita imports.
