Palisade is a motif designed by Christopher Dresser, an eminent Victorian designer and professor of botany. Dresser’s great innovation was in representing the beauty and symmetry of microscopic plant cell structures in his designs. The Palisade pattern was acquired by Burleigh in times past as a copper plate engraving and has remained in our archive ever since. When it was rediscovered, the fine details were adapted into a new border pattern for tableware and drinking vessels.
