Description Technical Specs Mural Installation Guide
This chinoiserie scenic mural is inspired by a rare surviving tile panel comprised of 55 delft (tin-glazed earthenware) tiles. The tile panel was originally one of a set of six made at a pottery on the south bank of the Thames about 1725. The six tile pictures hung in a house in the Lambeth area of London (near the pottery where the tiles were made) about 1800. Our mural is based on a panel in the Colonial Williamsburg collection. These scenes show how the English were powerfully impressed and influenced by imported Chinese porcelains made for the Western market. British artisans and patrons expressed their admiration for Chinese design by emulating and adapting original Chinese art and decorative objects.
