Chinese-exported wares, especially porcelain, were prominent sources of home décor in 18th-century America. It was around this time that chinoiserie entered the Western design vocabulary. Chinese porcelain decorated with this combination of cobalt blue, iron-red, and gilding is known today as "Imari" after the Japanese port from which much of it was shipped during the 17th century, when Chinese kilns were not operational. The color palette was particularly popular in colonial Virginia.
