A famille rose European subject dinner plate, the centre painted with two cartouches depicting a woodcutter and a soldier, the cavetto with a chain border, and the rim with a bamboo and flower garland. Qianlong period, circa 1775

The source for this image is unknown though it could refer to a Gentlemen's club of the period, perhaps one inspired by Don Quixote. It has been suggested that the two figures represent Quixote and his side-kick Sancho Panza.
