"Japon" service, produced from 1876 by the Creil & Montereau pottery, shows the great success of Japonism in tableware production, like the Bracquemond-Rousseau service, produced by the same factory a few years earlier.
The Japon service was a great success and was constantly reissued. It is characterized by fine earthenware with a slightly bluish paste on which a darker blue decoration is printed. The decoration shows cherry trees, plum trees and chrysanthemum flower barriers.
The service is often called "Service Monet" because the artist had a similar one in his home in Giverny.
A "Deluxe" Japon model exists, which uses the same pattern enhanced with red and gold painted flowers, inspired by the imari gold brocade style.
