Additional information : Spero and Sandon (see below) assert that images of this nature should not be referred to as Chinoiserie, as this infers that an oriental original has been adapted by European painters; rather, they say that teapots of this nature - of which there were a considerable number of variants - bear an exact copy of original Qianlong designs
