The graceful line of this useful piece replicates the Hong Bowl.Recognized by the blue lattice border surrounding a variety of landscape scenes, this popular Chinese pattern inspired a number of European versions, most notably English stoneware. The most fashionable tables in the early American Republic were set with blue and white “Canton” or “Nanking” wares, named for the great Chinese trading ports from which they came. Chinese blue and white porcelain was in demand in this country well into the nineteenth century and has become a part of the heritage of many American families. Blue Canton faithfully recaptures this centuries-old tradition and taste.
