I would say Blue Willow, but it comes in many colours.This is an absolutely huge book, with many, many beautiful pictures of a wide variety of pieces.The book is a tremendous resource of information, not only about British Willow, but about British potteries, their histories, and the marks they used.Of course this is the most comprehensive source of information on Willow, Blue and otherwise, in existence.The odd thing, is that it is a brand new, book, just published this year, with a list price of $69.95. If is really willing to sell it for $14 (which I seriously doubt) I'd jump at the chance.

Well presented and thorough. Found most of the willow I have collected.

I liked this book

Very nice
