Tobacco Leaf is an extravagant design which was originally made in China, probably for export to the Portuguese and Brazilian markets. Of all the 18th century dinnerware patterns, this was the most highly prized. A small phoenix bird perches on the leaves of the flowering Nicotiana (Tobacco) plant. Twenty-seven colors with 22k gold characterize this pattern which is based on an original which is displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
This lidded vessel holds a candle in the Mediterranean Fig fragrance which has top notes of bergamot and lemon; heart notes of fig; and background notes of jasmine and musk. The 8 ounce candle made from 100% natural wax will provide approximately 65 hours of clear, smoke-free burn.
When the fragrance is a memory, the vessel is a treasure.
