Blue and White Dinnerware

Blue has been a popular and enduring colour in home decor and entertaining for centuries - some would say this is because there is no blue food so all other colours stand out better on a blue background. The earliest examples of blue and white porcelain have been traced to Jingdezhen in China in the 14th century. This was due to a combination of Chinese craftmanship and the importing of Persian cobalt which at that time was considered more precious than gold. Thus only the very rich were able to afford blue and white dinnerware. By the beginning of the 17th century, Chinese porcelain was being exported to Europe and subsequently to the United States - hence the name 'china' - and the first European factory to produce similar blue and white tableware was in Germany. That pattern - Blue Onion - is still being made at the Hutschenreuther factory. Oriental style blue and white tableware is still fashionable - see Burleigh's Oriental Peacock - but today we are able to offer many variations of blue and white tableware from banded to floral and to chintz.
