Collecting Blue & White

The classic colors of sea and sky have long inspired collectors and captured the hearts of many around the world. Sophisticated hues of blue—from delicate pastel to deep, bold navy—evoke a tranquil yet often vibrant mood, while soft white tones remind us of peaceful summer days. The appealing color combination mimics nature’s blue sky embellished with crisp white clouds, and adds endless beauty to interior décor, table settings, linens, and, of course, beloved china pieces. Blue and white collections have taken on many forms throughout the centuries. From the original Wedgwood China to Burleigh, Spode, Flow Blue, and Royal Dalton, blue and white china is timeless. Dainty teacups and saucers, porcelain platters, and various décor infused with unique floral and landscape motifs complete the look of an elegant table.
