Catalogue Note

While European interest in the culture and design of the Far East preceded the last quarter of the 19th century, this period witnessed a strong resurgence in the appeal of oriental exoticism in the decorative arts, brought by the opening of Japan to the West and that nation's participation in the 1867 Paris Exposition Universelle.
