Overview

Gaston's Blue Willow: Identification and Value Guide by Mary Frank Gaston

A history of the Blue Willow pattern begins the book with descriptions of the many border and center patterns of this china. Dating Blue Willow and collecting Blue Willow are discussed, and all known marks are illustrated. Over 650 color photographs of bowls, ashtrays, plates, pitchers, vases, platters, sugar bowls, and much more are included. A special feature in this edition highlights the variations in the Willow pattern, which are often mixed in with the traditional Willow patterns and confuse collectors. Gaston makes identification easy, separating not only pattern variations but Willow produced in other colors. There are also several helpful indexes provided: objects, patterns, English manufacturers, Japanese items, American manufacturers, and origins other than England, Japan, and the United States. 2007 values.
