Presented for sale is a rare matching set of 12 Royal Doulton story plates depicting the Chinese Legend Of The Willow Pattern. These plates were sold in Boston in the early part of the 20th century by the company Jones, McDuffie & Stratton, a firm that carried fine china and collectible objects d’art. Each plate has one of four vignettes from the legend with a line on the reverse narrating the scene. The plates have a transfer pattern enhanced with hand painted enamels. They are very charming and perfect for cabinet display.

The Legend of the Willow Pattern is an old Chinese fairy tale that tells the story of Koong-se and Chang, ill-fated lovers who run away from her father The Mandarin. They escape to a distant island where they live in peace for a number of years until the Mandarin finally discovers them and puts Chang to death. Koong-se is so distraught that she sets fire to their home and perishes. The gods take pity on the lovers and immortalize them as a pair of flying doves.

The plates are in excellent condition, probably displayed or packed as they appear to have never been used.

Size: 10 ¼” Diameter.
