Description:

An earthenware plate from a dark blue dinner service made for the American market.  The series has been given the name Weeping Willow Border Series, and this is pattern #09.  Many pieces in the service have patterns copied from prints in the book from which this pattern was derived, but some of the patterns seem to be invented, while still in the same style.  The source print for this pattern is included below.
