Our popular Levingston dinnerware is now enhanced with flowers and ferns from the “Botanical Garden” print collection. These stoneware mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe, unlike the 17th and 18th-century ceramics in the Colonial Williamsburg collection that inspired it. Set of 4 . A different motif on each mug. Holds 16 oz. 4½"H x 4"Dia.
The 18th century was the age of the gentleman gardener—that man of the Enlightenment who marveled in new plants discovered as the boundaries of the world expanded. Britain’s increasing world trade meant discovery and appreciation of exotic flowers, fruits, and woods—magnolia, mangoes, mahogany. Experimental gardeners traded seeds and bulbs on both sides of the Atlantic. In London, Sir Hans Sloane, president of the Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge (a prestigious club of learned naturalists and scientists) nurtured the Chelsea Physic Garden to grow medicinal herbs and flowers. In Williamsburg, Virginia, John Custis IV kept a magnificent four-acre garden, renowned as one of the finest in colonial America. Custis corresponded with prominent naturalists, including Mark Catesby (one of the first to paint and publish illustrations of American birds in their habitats), Pennsylvanian John Bartram (whom Linnaeus called the “greatest natural botanist in the world”), and Peter Collinson, an Englishman who distributed American seeds to British gardeners.
The “Botanical Garden” collection gathers flowers and ferns from this golden age of botanical illustration from rare books in the library of Colonial Williamsburg. Breakfast in a garden bower— with no weeds, ants, or green pollen to spoil your enchantment!
Dishwasher safe.
