Chinese Blue and White Porcelain
To many people blue and white is virtually synonymous with the entire range of Chinese porcelain with a large number regarding the ubiquitous Willow Pattern as the main, if not the only decorative motif. The truth is vastly different in that the history of blue and white over the last 600 years has far more to say and thus is deserving of serious study.
