Quick question: What is that kind of china or porcelein called that is white with deep blue (navy or royal) often folk designs and patterns called?

Many thanks for providing its name,
Wordwind

No, Spode is not what I'm seeing in my mind's eye. The kind I'm thinking of is not as intricately painted as the Spode, but thanks for providing a link with a picture! The kind I'm looking for is more broadly painted--the designs are larger, and the white is more prevalently displayed. Also, the strokes of blue are broad and much larger than in the Spode.

Best regards,
WW

Daft?

and to return a challenge: devise a suitable product/item that can accurately be described by the name procelein® - it's too good a word to waste!

Dear WW: Here is a URL with picture of a specimen of blue on white. It is about a book on the subject, but there is a rair amount of information that might interest you.

I had thought maybe it was Delft--but it's not. The Chinese porcelein (sorry about that typo in the subject heading!!) comes closest so far in that there's a lot of white showing, unlike Willow that has a great deal of dark or navy blue.

If you took the shot on the Bill's URL, and made the design look more western than eastern, it would be the type I'm looking for---oh, gosh, if it turned out to be French, that would be ideal, perfect!

Thanks so much for the suggestions,
Theresa

Dear WW: I looked at Sèvres porcelains but saw nothing that seemed to fit.
