Bought from the Exhibition of Industrial Art, Paris, 1844, this plate is one of the earliest acquisitions by the South Kensington School of Design (the origin of the Museum's collection). Edouard D. Honoré (d.1855) headed one of the major porcelain manufactories in Paris. His first partnership was with P-L Dagoty and, after its dissolution, he continued independently with a saleroom at Boulevard Poissonnière and decorating studios in Montparnasse in Paris, and a factory at Champroux, Allier. Honoré took out several patents for the application of high-temperature coloured grounds and for the development of lithographic techniques. The School's interest in new techniques applied to design ensured the value of this plate as an example for the students.
