This extravagant design was originally made in China, probably for export to the Portuguese and Brazilian markets. Of all the 18th century dinner patterns, this was the most highly prized. A small phoenix bird perches on the leaves of the flowering Nicotiana (Tobacco) plant. Twenty-seven colors and 22k gold make up this pattern based on an original in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This pattern, one of the longest running patterns by Mottahedeh, continues its strong popularity today, showing that good design is timeless.
Mottahedeh is the recognized leader in luxury ceramic antique reproductions and historic designs. With an emphasis on hard porcelain faience and stoneware, we license authentic fine china reproductions from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the Historic Charleston Foundation, Mount Vernon, Winterthur Museum and Gardens, Monticello, and Tony Duquette. We’ve also been commissioned by the White House, the U.S. State Department, and the Diplomatic Corps to production collections used in official state capacity.
