Canton is emphatically a chinoiserie design. Its most prominent feature is the pomegranate motif on a central circular medaillon, edged with red, gold and blue leaves. The medaillon is surrounded by stylised pomegranate trees with cobalt blue leaves and trunks, blossoming and bearing fruit alternately.
Between the trees are sword-shaped fronds of blue sedge, and stylised plants and flowers in red and gold. The border is richly gilded, with a star-shaped geometric design interspersed with little medaillons decorated with rosettes and flowering branches. The Canton pattern was devised in the second half of the nineteenth century, and it takes its name from the place where most Chinese porcelain exported to Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries was made. Its motifs are intended to be symbols of productivity and prosperity.
