PLATE DINNER BLUE WILLOW SET/4
This beautiful set of four 10-1/4-inch porcelain dinner plates has the classic Blue Willow design. The Blue Willow design depicts the charming and legendary old Chinese Blue Willow Story. The story is about an angry father pursuing his eloping daughter. At the end, the father finds the maiden and her lover on a bridge, and before his eyes, they transform into love birds and fly away together. The lovebirds can be seen on all Blue Willow designs. Keeping with the classic design, ever-present are the willows, the house where the lovers resided, the house to which they fled, the bridge where they were transformed - all of the central motifs of the Blue Willow story are in the design of each Blue Willow piece. The Blue Willow design is stencil etched on by hand then fired, creating a beautiful and long lasting finish. To maintain the lovely finish, do not place in microwave or oven. Hand wash recommended.
