These Churchill Georgian-shaped teacups are made in England and depict the story of Blue Willow. Set in ancient China, the daughter of a wealthy mandarin was betrothed to an old rich merchant, but she was in love with her fathers' poor employee. Upon discovering this, her father imprisoned her in their pagoda, where she wrote secret messages in coconut shells and float the downstream to her love. Ever suspicious, her father hastened wedding arrangements to the old merchant. The two crossed lovers managed to elope, and sadly were caught by her father in their small escape boat on the sea. In a fit of wrath he was ready to beat them to death, but the fates intervened, turning them into a pair of turtle doves, free to fly together for eternity.
This beautiful musky and woody scent has a lovely perfume, best accompanied by a good read, how novel! Romantically inspired by leather and dusty tomes on creaky wooden shelves. This scent is rich and slightly masculine, with tones of cashmere, leather, sandalwood, amber, vanilla and warm ginger. Vegan and eco friendly, and cruelty free ingredients only.
