Examples of Chinese ornament by Owen Jones (1809–1874) 
This image shows plate III (= 3). Jones’ original description of this plate from his “Description of the plates” (page 9–15), transcribed literally, using Jones’ orthography:
“This plate is arranged from a blue-and-white china Basin, and shows half the circumference of the basin developed. The four pear-shaped masses are very effective. The etched outline flowers on the dark ground are after the Indian manner; so also is the general arrangement of the pedant ornament, except that the scrolls have their terminations so peculiarly Chinese.”
