Image of the Week: Cinderella

'Cinderella' by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones.

‘Cinderella’ by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones.

Note the blue and white china in the background.  It was highly sought after by both Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Burne-Jones.  Elizabeth Siddal casually referenced this in a brief message to Georgiana Burne-Jones:

My Dear Little Georgie,
I hope you intend coming over with Ned to-morrow evening like a sweetmeat, it seems so long since I saw you dear. Janey will be here I hope to meet you.
With a willow-pattern dish full of love to you and Ned,
Lizzie

Rossetti as collector on the Walker Art Gallery website discusses Rossetti’s collections of china, jewellery and Chinese and Japanese art.
