This version of a country music party is one of six such scenes which illustrate musicians in gently amorous situations -- all after European engravings of the about 1735-50.

Per D. Howard "The Choice of the Private Trader" pg. 88

Decorated on the rim with feathery scrolls in bright enamels; the central scene after a European original of a troubadour with his lute beneath a tree, sitting beside two barrels with a decanter and wine glasses, while a young man caresses a girl beside him.

This version of a country music party has a distinctly Continental flavour and is one of at least six such scenes which illustrate musicians in gently amorous situations - all after European originals of the period 1735 - 50.
