Description

Interpreting a 19th-century earthenware tile in The Met collection, our embroidered placemats feature elegant cranes—the Japanese symbol for longevity—sharing a dusky blue sky with swirling clouds and a luminous moon. Designed by Christopher Dresser (British, 1834–1904) for Minton Ceramic Factory (British, 1793–present), the tile's composition directly references a Japanese ceramic flowerpot (ca. 1860) exhibited at the 1862 International Exhibition in London, and later acquired by what is now the Victoria and Albert Museum. Though none of the pieces made by Minton bear Dresser's signature, this tile can be firmly identified as his design based on drawings in the company archives.
