The toile pattern on this porcelain mug highlights some of the most recognizable buildings in Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area, like the Governor's Palace and the Powder Magazine. Toile, which dates to 1760 France, quickly became all the rage in 18th-century Europe and the colonies. It was most commonly found in red and used in bed coverings at first, and later expanded to other colors (such as blue and sepia) and parts of the home. Though toile is actually a fabric, strictly speaking, the illustration style commonly associated with it can be found on a variety of decorative accessories today. Porcelain.
