The depiction of "ugly" or grotesque cherubs on ornate porcelain tureens was popular during the Baroque and Rococo periods, which spanned from the late 17th to the 18th century in Europe. These cherubs were often part of the elaborate decorative motifs adorning luxury items such as tureens, reflecting the artistic tastes and styles of the time. The use of gold accents further enhanced the opulence and grandeur of these pieces, making them sought-after items among the nobility and aristocracy of the era.

 Reproductions of tureens featuring "ugly" cherubs with gold accents on ornate porcelain became popular during the 20th century, particularly during periods of revivalist movements such as the Neo-Baroque and Neo-Rococo revivals. These reproductions sought to emulate the lavishness and extravagance of the original Baroque and Rococo styles, catering to collectors and enthusiasts of antique-inspired decor. The mid-20th century, in particular, saw a resurgence of interest in historical styles, leading to the production of various reproductions and adaptations of ornate porcelain tureens featuring cherubs with gold detailing.
