With one of the most renowned dinnerware and giftware traditional blue print patterns in the World, the famous Willow pattern is steeped in history. The beauty of this teapot adds to the conversation that will be created around the story on the outside of the teapot. The Blue Willow design is well over 200 hundred years old. The Blue Willow pattern was inspired by a Chinese legend about two young lovers. A wealthy man's daughter (Hong Shee) fell in love with her father's secretary (Chang). The father did not approve of the romance. He confined the girl to the palace. With help from her sympathetic maid, Hong Shee escaped. The two lovers ran over a bridge to a boat and sailed away together. A terrible storm developed, the boat sank and the two lovers drowned. Legend says that two love birds appeared in the sky --- the spirits of Hong Shee and Chang happily together at last.
