East Meets West Bird Brooch from The Met Museum


This fanciful avian brooch in 14K gold plate is adorned with colorful enamel and crystals. It recalls a beautiful 19th-century British porcelain plate by Spode in The Met collection. Either a Japanese Imari plate-or a mid-18th century Meissen copy of a Japanese original-might have served as the design source for this English version. The plate illustrates the creative interchanges between Chinese ceramics and those in other parts of the world due to the rise of global trade.
