The Peacock Room was originally intended to showcase Frederick Leyland, its first owner's extensive collection of Chinese blue-and -white porcelain. Among his 300-plus pieces were examples similar to this vessel. Known as Kangxi ware, these pots were produced in the Jingdezhen region during the Kangxi reign (1662-1722). They became so popular with Victorian consumers that the press mockingly dubbed the craze "Chinamania." http://peacockroom.wayne.edu/items/show/3375 F1986.19a-b
