In this Design: This vivid design from a Chinese export porcelain dish in Colonial Williamsburg’s collections is popularly called “tobacco leaf.” However, it was actually inspired by Asian plants as depicted on Indian textiles and was a fashionable import into the American South in the late 18th century—early global chic.

Artist or Collection Biography: The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation operates the world’s largest living history museum in Williamsburg, Virginia—the restored 18th-century capital of Britain’s largest, wealthiest, and most populous outpost of empire in the New World. Here we interpret the origins of the idea of America, conceived decades before the American Revolution. The Colonial Williamsburg story of a revolutionary city tells how diverse peoples, having different and sometimes conflicting ambitions, evolved into a society that valued liberty and equality. Americans cherish these values as a birthright, even when their promise remains unfulfilled. In addition to the Historic Area, the foundation also operates The DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum, The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, Bassett Hall, and John D. Rockefeller Jr. Library, which showcase American and British decorative arts, fine art, architecture and manuscripts of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.
