Discoveries at sites like Herculaneum in 1711 and 1738 inspired brothers Robert, James and John Adams to study and revive the interest in Greek and Roman antiquities. True Classical Revival is a phenomenon of the late 1790s. The industrial Revolution capitalized on the repetitive nature of Classical forms and resulted in international appeal of this graceful style.

Though attempts to copy the Chinese style have been made as early as the fourteenth century, the Rococo movement in the late eighteenth century and its revival in the mid nineteenth century moved Chinoiserie into the mainstream marketplace. In England, it became of theme of the Royal Palace in Brighton, commissioned by Prince Regent, later George IV. While the foundation of the Palace was established in 1787, the Prince hired John Nash in 1815 to convert the Marine Pavilion into an exuberant oriental fantasy. It took seven years to complete the transformation. In 1817, the same year as these salt cellars, the Prince hired Frederick Crace and Robert Jones to create a magnificent and opulent interior for the future King of England.
The firm of Rebecca Emes and Edward Barnard used their expertise and sensitivity to Royal taste in the execution of this set of salt cellars. The accompanying spoons are in keeping with the cellars, though they are marked “GF”.
