Striking and contemporary, Queen’s Quarter is an opulent geometric, taken from a small detail within a much larger scheme of Verrio murals. Its irregular octagons appear as corner vignettes within the Queen’s Drawing Room at Hampton Court Palace, the decoration of which was commissioned by Queen Anne as a grand statement of her royal majesty and imperial power. The murals as a whole were designed to create the illusion of a marble hall open to the sky, with the walls painted to look like tapestries with wide floral borders and gold fringes. However, it is Queen’s Quarter’s burnished metallic that struck the Cole & Son creative team, its understated repeat and elegant detail revealing a hidden gem within the much larger traditional scheme.
