Product Description

IMG_0589

One of the most prized of Chinese Export patterns, it was developed circa 1780, probably for the Portuguese and Brazilian markets – though examples have also been found in other European countries and in North America. The design shows the leaves of the flowering Nicotiana (Tobacco) plant upon which a small phoenix perches bearing a flowering twig in its beak.

This exact reproduction requires:

  • twenty-eight colors
  • 22K gold detailing
  • five firings to manufacture

The joyous exuberance of the Tobacco Leaf pattern is undiminished by time.

Tobacco Leaf is an authorized reproduction for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
