The prototype for Chinese figures, which were imported by East India Companies and served as ornament for mantelpiece decorations etc., was further increased circa 1800 by the popularisation of the Chinese style evident in the redecoration of Carlton House, London and Brighton Pavilion for George, Prince of Wales, later George IV. The figure is similar to a pair of regency polychrome-decorated and parcel-gilt plaster figures from the collection of David Style, Esq., at Watering Place in Kent. The pair bears the 1807 patent of the Danish-born sculptor/modeler Giovanni Domenico Gianelli of Cock Lane, West Smithfield, who later exhibited wax sculpture at the Royal Academy from 1809-1820. The similar modeling of the figures (each holds a handkerchief in a hand and the figures' robes are gathered in the same way) suggest a strong case for an attribution to Gianelli.
