Art HistoryWith the opening of Japanese ports to trade with the West in 1854, Japanese designs became wildly fashionable in Europe and the United States. The Royal Worcester Porcelain Company, formed in 1862 in England, was a leading manufacturer of porcelains decorated in the Japanesque mode, with raised gold-paste ornamentation set against a porcelain base.
