Acquisition and important dates

Method of acquisition: Bequeathed (1928) by Glaisher, J. W. L., Dr


Late 18th century
Circa 1770 CE - 1790 CE


Conte Annibale II Ferniani's interest in Oriental porcelain, as well as the need to keep up with fashion, led to the introduction of Oriental patterns at Faenza. The pattern on this dish, known as garofano (carnation) was derived from a late seventeenth- or early eighteenth-century Kakiemon pattern featuring a pom-pom chrysanthemum. Known initially as porcellana nuova or giapponese del casotto, it was introduced in 1767.
