Merope's Reflection Nebula.
Image Credit & Copyright: Leonardo Orazi. Reflection nebulas reflect light from a nearby star where small carbon grains in the nebula reflect the light.

The brightness of the nebula is determined by the size and density of the reflecting grains, and by the colour and brightness of the neighbouring star(s). NGC 1435 surrounds Merope (23 Tau), one of the brightest stars in the Pleiades (M45).

This flared Paris porcelain vase mounted on a gilt bronze stand (museum number 463-1844) is painted with a profusion of brightly-coloured flowers dramatically set off against a completely gilded background. It is most probably bought from the Escalier de Cristal retailer Lahoche, Boin & Cie at the 1844 French Industrial Exhibition. The acquisition of this vase actually pre-dated the building of the South Kensington Museum, which is where it is presently.
