The most fashionable tables in the early American Republic were set with blue and white “Canton” ware, so called for the great Chinese trading port from which it came. Chinese blue and white porcelain was in demand well into the 19th century and has been part of the heritage of many American families. Blue Canton faithfully recaptures this centuries old tradition and taste.
The lid of the Blue Canton boxe are decorated with the landscape scenes of the pattern. The covered boxes are excellent gift choices. Licensed product of Historic Charleston.
