The most fashionable tables in early America were set with blue and white “Canton” ware, named for the great Chinese trading port from which it came. Blue and white Canton ware served as the “everyday” china for George Washington and his family. Chinese blue and white porcelain was in demand well into the 19 century and has become part of the heritage of many American families.
This modern interpretation of Martha Washington’s Blue Canton, like the original, was made in China. The pierced latticework bowl is 6” in diameter. The small rimmed plate is 4” in diameter. Microwave and dishwasher safe. Made exclusively for Mount Vernon.
