Variations of the Blue Willow pattern we are all familiar with today came to be in the late 1700’s. Eventually in the early 1800s a standardized English Blue Willow pattern became popular in England, and they all have certain familiar traits such as the thatched edging, willow tree, and fence. The pattern tells the story of two star crossed lovers that due to their social status are unable to be together. A poem was also coined in reference to the story, as follows.

    Two birds flying high,
    A Chinese vessel, sailing by.
    A bridge with three men, sometimes four,
    A willow tree, hanging o'er.
    A Chinese temple, there it stands,
    Built upon the river sands.
    An apple tree, with apples on,
    A crooked fence to end my song.
Translated into a set of four mugs for an elegant morning cup of tea or even on display in your dining room as a conversation piece. Each piece of stoneware is lovingly made in England.
