China-ware





An English gentleman wanting a dessert-service of porcelain
made after a particular pattern, sent over to China a specimen dish,

ordering that it should be exactly copied for the whole service. It

unfortunately happened that in the dish so sent over the Chinese

manufacturer discovered a crack; the consequence was, that the entire

service sent over to the party ordering it had a crack in each article,

carefully copied from the original.
