I wrap-up my London buying trip with this handsome Victorian English oval ceramic platter. Made in the 1880’s -1890’s, it is decorated with an Orientalist Aesthetic Movement transfer design. It captures perfectly the British fascination with all things Japanese—in the days of Arthur Liberty and The Mikado. Lovely to use, worthy of display, this platter would make a handsome centerpiece of your festive Holiday meal service.
See this, and other new acquisitions, in-shop from 13 December.
