It will be auctioned by Bonhams in Queen Street on Wednesday, when it is expected to raise £3000.

Asha Edwards, Bonhams’ Asian specialist, said: “This punch bowl is very unusual. It would have been the property of a very wealthy and flamboyant Jacobite with connections with a trusted merchant in China.”
