A 1770s British copperplate printed curtain from the WILLIAMSBURG archives inspires this Blue Toile Chinoiserie Bud Vase. The original design recalls the tea, porcelain, and silk trade with the Far East, and, reimagined on today's finest tableware, is a contemporary example of East-meets-West. 6"H.
Pagodas, latticework railings and bridges were key elements in the 18th-century English interpretation of Asian designs. The British East India Company’s import of tea, porcelains, lacquers, and silks from China fueled a mania for goods “in the Chinese taste.” British copperplate-printed fabrics (now called by their French name, toiles), became all the rage in curtains and slipcovers about 1770. As the inspiration for this collection two centuries later, these fanciful Chinoiserie designs still hint elegantly at the exotic.
