With all eyes focused on The Met Gala last week, you may have missed a short presentation posted by the Museum as part of its ongoing 82nd & Fifth series. Here decorative arts curator Ellenor Alcorn explores a vessel that may or may not have connections to Sir Walter Raleigh or Elizabeth I but what's most interesting about the piece is its design: an international mash-up with Chinese blue-and-white taking the lead.
