What can we say?  We love blue and white.  And we are certainly not alone.  The classic colour combination featured prominently in the incredible decorative arts exported from China to Europe starting in the seventeenth century and was then adopted by the Dutch, who made blue and white Delftware a trend on its own.

Below we have featured a selection of items currently in our collection that embody this blue and white trend.
