The brightly colored grasshopper on this china plate seems to have jumped right out of a storybook. In reality, he came from an illustration in a 19th-century natural history book.
We think he looks fabulous on this ornate mid-century Japanese-made Empress China platter. We love how the colors coordinate, even if the subject matter is unexpected.
