Product Description


One of the most prized of Chinese Export patterns, Tobacco Leaf 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. Mottahedeh holds a license to reproduce this classic pattern from museum pieces in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. This exact and authorized reproduction requires twenty-seven colors including 22K gold and five firings to manufacture. The joyous exuberance of the Tobacco Leaf pattern is undiminished by time.
