New Blue WillowBy

New Blue Willow

A grocery chain in the Midwest offered new Blue Willow china with a confusing back-stamp. Larger serving pieces carry obviously modern words such as "Dishwasher Safe" but smaller pieces are simply marked "Churchill—England—Willow".

The new mark - a lion and the words Churchill/England (Fig. 2) - is impressed in small new pieces such as cups and saucers. The mark is confusing because "England" alone in a mark is generally assumed to be older than a mark which includes "Made in England".

There is no record of any old English firm using a similar mark. All of the pieces with this mark are not old. Retail price of new cup and saucer was $7.50.
