HIC's Porcelain Blue Willow Buffet Plate depicts the popular and highly collected Blue Willow dinnerware design. Originating in England, circa 1780, this richly illustrated design, featuring a weeping willow, pagoda, bridge and lovebirds, portrays the Chinese legend of a wealthy man's daughter who's fallen in love with her father's clerk. The father pursues the newly eloped couple through his garden and onto the bridge where they transform into lovebirds and fly off beyond his reach. Spotlight culinary creations in style for carefree entertaining. Whether serving a family meal or entertaining for the holidays, Blue Willow is casual enough for use every day, yet elegant enough for those special occasions. This larger-capacity 12.25-inch buffet plate has ample space for serving finger foods, hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, delicate small bites, and desserts. Crafted from fine-quality porcelain, the natural heat-retaining characteristics helps keep food warm longer and, it's microwave safe for quick, easy reheats. Or, it serves nicely as a larger dinner plate. Great gift for art enthusiasts or as a hostess gift. A tradition since 1957, HIC Fine Porcelain is durable, versatile and safe for use in the microwave, oven (to 500-degrees Fahrenheit), and freezer. Dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.
