Beautiful 12 inch ironstone serving platter from J&G Meakin, Royal Staffordshire in the Blue Willow pattern. Platter is in excellent, vintage condition and shows little to no signs of use. This platter is part of a larger complete set containing eight, six piece place settings and other serving pieces. This set was produced in the 1970's and the pattern has been discontinued. Made in England. Dishwasher safe.

Blue Willow, an ever popular china pattern, has been in continuous production for over 215 years. This classic, beautiful pattern is made all the more interesting by the Legend of the Willow Plate. There are many versions of the legend, and this is one of my favourites. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ge1LD8JDfYg
