This piece was certainly made to order, as indicated by the coat of arms of the powerful Meneses de Cantanhede family, Marquises of Marialva or of Louriçal. There is additional continuous and detailed decoration of features celebrating, with remarkable relief engraving, the rococo ornamentation: hunting scenes in progress, landscapes alive with human figures and Chinese architecture.
