Blue Willow Tea Set
Of oriental influences, the pattern shows a pair of doves soaring across an Asian garden and palace.
Wholly intrigued by its Eastern neighbors, Victorian London found itself infatuated by Asian artisanship.
The blue and white design illustrates a forbidden love. It's told that an heiress by the name of Koong-se fell for a clerk. Forced to run away from her father and an impending arranged marriage, they met a fateful end. Their souls were then transformed, becoming immortal doves.
