Tin Plate: Tobacco Leaf

Tin Plate: Tobacco Leaf

Elite Tins is a UK company that produces high quality tin ware. Their tin enamel plates feature beautiful designs from museum, gallery and royal collections.

This design, referred to as the "Tobacco Leaf" pattern, is adapted from a late 18th to early 19th century Chinese vase in the Metropolitan Museum's collection.

The original beaker-shaped vase was made in China for the European market. It is made of hard paste porcelain and is decorated with enamel colours in a variant of the tobacco leaf or passion flower design.
