Share your passion for Williamsburg along with a note to friends and family with these colorful note cards. 
Blue and white Chinese porcelain for the export trade was the "better" ware of the day, popular among the rising middle classes. Japanese-style wares with multi-colored enameling and gilt, made at English porcelain factories such as Worcester and Chelsea, were "best"—very expensive wares made for aristocratic tea and dining tables.

Colonial Williamsburg's ceramics and glass collections encompass more than 11,000 objects ranging in date from the 17th century through the 1830s, with a particular focus on wares made between 1740 and 1780. The majority of objects reflect the wares that were made in or imported to America during the colonial and early national periods.
