Standard colourway on Parchment painted paper


Standard colourway on Parchment painted paper


Coutts depicts scenes of everyday life in 18th century Imperial China. The detailed portrayals include shopkeepers keeping accounts using abacuses; barefooted servants waiting on their masters, tea being picked, and the various stages of silk production. The inspiration for the pattern was the fabulous paper lining the boardrooms of Coutts Bank in London’s The Strand, a gift to the bank’s director, Thomas Coutts, from Lord Macartney of Lissamore, shortly after his return to England in 1794 after a two-year expedition to China.
