V&A Dragon Flower Reflect Platinum Teacup and Saucer Set

£165.00 GBP

In the late 18th and early 19th century, porcelain manufacturers in Europe were  inspired by what they referred to as “white gold”, or in other words, porcelain, which came to Europe from Japan and China. Two English manufacturers, Spode and Derby, were particularly intrigued by Japanese Imari porcelain, named after the port in Japan from which it set sail. Dragon Flower is our homage to the decorative floral designs of this era, except we’ve turned the flowers into dragons to add a mythical eastern twist.
Collection Story

Richard Brendon has collaborated with the V&A to create a collection of exquisite bone china, in order to shine a light on the golden era of Georgian ceramics. The V&A collection consists of four striking saucers to pair with his signature gold and platinum reflective teacups. 

The original Reflect collection breathes life into 'orphaned' antique saucers, which have lost their matching teacups over time. When the reflective cups are placed onto the patterned antique saucer, they perfectly mirror the design below, making it appear as though the pair have always belonged together. 

For the first instalment of the collaboration, Richard has selected four of his favourite patterns from the V&A's vast archives and re-imagined them with playful and whimsical twists. A great deal of consideration has gone into the research, design and creation of each of the saucers; the attention to detail in the patterns, illustrations, printing and manufacturing is second to none.

To bring the collection to life, Richard has partnered with illustrator Chris Martin and, as always, the phenomenally skilled potters of Stoke-on-Trent, the home of British ceramics.
