* The Kakiemon decor:

is a Japanese decorative style composed of stylized flowering branches, animals, hedges, children, etc., found on porcelain. Kakiémon porcelain had a major influence on the new porcelain factories of the 18th century in Europe. The style was adopted in Germany where Meissen copies could be very close to the originals. In Austria, there is Kakiémon made by Du Paquier and by the “Viennese factories”. It is the same, in France, in the porcelain of Chantilly, in Mennecy and in the pottery of Saint-Cloud. Kakiémon influences are also found in Delft earthenware and Chinese export porcelain.
