Classic Blue Onion

Zwiebelmuster dish, Blue Onion pattern, circa 1750. The famous Blue Onion pattern derives from a design on early Eighteenth Century Chinese porcelain intended for the European export market. By the 1800s, it became Meissen's stock-in-trade and was copied by countless European porcelain manufactories. Today, the Meissen factory continues to produce more than 750 wares decorated with the Blue Onion pattern.

 Can't you just picture this classic china in a room like this (Ivanka Trump's NY apartment from Blue Hydrangea)?
