The story of the classic ''blue willow'' ceramic pattern is a true exchange of art traditions. In the 18th century, European taste for Asian ceramics was at its peak. Chinese forms were decorated with European motifs for export around the globe. ''Blue willow'' is said to tell the story of a pair of star-crossed lovers. Vintage pieces of this enduring pattern are set in sterling silver and given new life in these distinctive accents. Handcrafted.
