HIC's Porcelain Blue Willow Tea Caddy 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 afternoon tea or entertaining for the holidays, Blue Willow is casual enough for use every day, yet elegant enough for those special occasions. From black tea to oolong tea, green tea, chai, or chamomile, this Tea Caddy is perfect for resting used tea bags, tea infusers, beverage stirrers, spoons, and other flatware to catch unwanted drips and keep tables mess free. It doubles nicely for serving sugar lumps, lemon wedges, and mint leaves. Clever gifts for art enthusiasts, tea lovers, and hostesses. 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.
