Description

Our coaster set nods to one of the most revelatory innovations in the global history of ceramics. The practice of painting cobalt blue imagery on white porcelain burgeoned in 14th-century China, after which it was adapted by potters around the world and through the centuries. An homage to this classic color palette, each coaster features a detail from a different blue-and-white ceramic treasure in The Met collection: an earthenware tile (ca. 1875) designed by Christopher Dresser (British, 1834–1904) and manufactured by Minton(s) (British, 1793–present), a Chinese platter and rack (1800–1830), a dish with a scene of tea cultivation crafted in China around 1740–45 for the European market, and a late 17th-century Japanese dish with cranes.
