This cover is decorated with Chinese scenes. The emperor of China sits under a tree in the central field, encircled by a floral wreath with bows: a typically European design. He drinks wine and listens to music played by his servants and monkeys. The border of the cover is embellished with appliqué work, decorative pieces of fabric sewn on top. Similar chinoiserie also features in lacquerware and embroidery.
