The West Parlor at Washington’s Mount Vernon was first painted an eye-popping Prussian blue in 1787.

As part of signature 18th century colonial colors, this Prussian Blue truly lighted up my Monday.

This morning, I came across the blog by Quintessence —At Home in Colonial Williamsburg with Anthony Baratta.

The brass sculptures of tea drinking Chinese men, named “Hyson” and “Bohea” were inspired by 18th-century tea accoutrements held by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, for Chinese teas were popular in 18th-century Virginia. The historical impact of tea cannot be understated. British demand for tea wares sparked the Industrial Revolution, and a British tax on tea led to the American Revolution. Colonial Williamsburg’s bountiful collections of 18th-century tea wares – made to accommodate the new social ceremony?which are designed with a “Trend Meets Tradition” approach that keeps them fresh. The English have been smitten with Asian goods and designs “in the Chinese taste” since Catherine of Braganza brought a dowry of Asian trade routes to her marriage to King Charles II of England in 1662. The WILLIAMSBURG “Bohea” and Hyson” sculptures were motivated by a print in the Colony. Get the Price
