Hi again! I am excited to show you my latest Blue and White Blue Willow display! I have been updating this page, so don’t forget to see all the updates below by date.
With August 23rd, 2021 updates (at end).
With October 3rd, 2021 updates (at very end).
If you didn’t see my last Blue and White post, here is the link:
As some of you may recall, I recently purchased a Welsh Dresser to replace our round china cabinet. We are still in the midst of renovations and unpacking (downstairs is last), but I finally found time to create a Blue and White Display in our new Welsh Dresser 🙂
I also had found a few more items for the display since last time:
2 Johnson Brothers Flow Blue plates:
A very large Blue Willow China Platter (Staffordshire). The Staffordshire platter I bought is huge! It’s 18 X 14.5 inches and doesn’t even fit on the lowest shelf of the Welsh Dresser, so I had to put it on the bottom rack underneath. Eventually I might hang it up on the wall. The platter was an heirloom item from a Victoria lady who was downsizing and it had been in her family for years. She estimates it is from the late 1800’s.
The Platter has the following Blue Willow China Markings:
Another Blue Willow creamer (on the right):
Here’s another example of Blue Willow China Markings:
A newer vintage Japanese Blue Willow Teapot on the top shelf:
Woods and Sons Wedgewood items, a sugar bowl and creamer, and a smaller jug:
and some Blue and White plates:
Chinese Blue Willow
In a past display I showed a Chinese Blue Willow bowl and plate, but didn’t show the marks…Here it is:
And another example of Blue Willow China Markings:
I have been busy! I am always watching out for people selling their items on the marketplace. I usually wait for a deal as prices usually come down a bit after awhile. There were also a couple of estate sales I attended, which is usually advertised as having items of interest. It seems there are alot more estate sales these days.
Anyway, here is the new display. Of course I hope you enjoy this as much as I do and I would love to hear any comments, thoughts or tips. I am still learning about Blue Willow china, but my collection is growing! I will likely start selling off some ‘extra’ pieces that I don’t need or duplicates. So watch for those in the future, or send me an email or comment if there is something you are looking for 🙂

August 23rd, 2021 Update:
Well I had a chance to do some more thrifting and searching on the local marketplace. I did find a couple more items featured in the photo below. Maybe you can spot them?
October 3, 2021 updates:
Our renovations have keep me a bit distracted. However, I did order a lovely Churchill Blue Willow Teapot of Amazon with a gift card that someone gave me. Here is the link to Amazon if you are interested in purchasing:
Here it is in my display:
I have also been busy with a couple other displays, so my Welsh Dresser is a bit full. Sorry it’s a bit busy with a couple of other patterns in there. It’s funny, even though I have mixed in a couple more china sets, it still looks completely natural, as if this is what any English lady would do! I guess my Welsh husband is rubbing off on me after 27 years of marriage!
Here is the latest look:
I hope you enjoy my displays.
