Chinese designs came to England and her colonies with the tea trade. In the 1760's Virginia's governor ordered "bamboo chairs" for this Williamsburg "palace". Williamsburg cabinetmaker Edmund Dickinson owned a copy of Chippendales Director, the most fashionable furniture pattern book of the 1750's and 1760's. When he died fighting for the American cause in the Revolution, his Director was worth as much as his "new rifle gun". 

The Bamboo Trellis design celebrates Chippendale in bright meadow green-on-cream porcelain. The pattern was inspired by the dining room chairs in the Governors Palace. Measures: 21"H x7.5"W x 7.5"D. Click images for greater detail.
