HIC's Porcelain Blue Willow Dinner Plates 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. 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. These larger-capacity 10.5-inch dinner plates have ample space to hold generous portions and work equally well as smaller platters. Crafted from fine-quality porcelain, the natural heat-retaining characteristics helps keep food warm longer and, they're microwave safe for quick, easy reheats. Great gifts for art enthusiasts or as hostess gifts. 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. Includes 4 Blue Willow (10.5-inch) dinner plates.
