 This unmarked porcelain  platter, printed in gray and given the name Akbar's Tomb, is one of five Chamberlain pieces known with transfer-printed scenes of India.  It is not known whether a whole dinner service was produced, but the known pieces include a soup tureen.  The pattern shown here was also produced on an oval shaped platter.  One of the known pieces, a 10 inch plate, was printed in blue, while the others were printed in gray.
