Got "Sold" on Stack of Willow
China,-So Now He's Learn
ing History of Pattern
"A china house,
A cherry tree,
A new bridge, as you may see.
Three little men.
Three, maybe four,
With willow-branches hanging o'er,
Two little doves swinging high,
A little ship passing by . . .
If E. L uenwarzoerg. Honolulu's
crack auctioneer, should be heard
muttering along the street, that's what
he's saying. It doesn t mean mat any
thing is the matter with him. mentally
speaking. It means that he is trying
to fix the description of the famous
willow-pattern of china so firmly in
his mind that hell never let another
piece get by without his knowing at
least that it is passing.
It all happened, he says, when a
great stack of china was taken into
the auction rooms the. other day for
Immediate sale it looked Just like
any other stack or cntna to mm. ana
so it would to anjrone else, because
it was topped by six plates of ordiur
ary blue and white china, such as may
be had for $10 or $12 a set His sur
prise, not to mention his consterna
tion, came when he had knocked the
whole lot down to Mrs. Sarah T.
Grace, who, being a woman Immedi
ately discovered and divulged to him
the fact that the common blue china
had hidden 40 pieces of very rare old

pattern, an offer which, was promptly
turned down.
Now, Mr. Schwarzberg Is collecting
Information about the willow-pattern,
with a view possibly to becoming a
collector of the china himself. Al
though he Is not going to be so gen
erous with, the plate,, after he has it
collected, he is quite willing ror tne
public to know what he has found out
about It. Here it Is: . r ;
The design, which "is of Chinese
origin, was Introduced into England in
17S0 by one Thomas Turner of Caugh
lev. it caught the fancy of lovers of
good china, and became the most pop
ular of all the famous blue ana wniie
china, all of which is made by paint
ing the design on the plate before the
glaze is put on. ; ;
Willdw branches and the willow
tree are believed by Chinese to ward
off evil spirits. Old Wang Chan, who
Dlanned a rebellion against the era-
pereor during the Tang dynasty about
a thousand years ago, had us follow
ers wear a willow Drancn to onng
good luck, which it did, as it showed
where their allegiance lay, and kept
them from ; being killed ; by Wang
Chan's warriors, ; who . overran ; the
land. On the day of the Festival of

woven around the unhappy .; lovV af

man of low degree. The . maiden's
name was Llchl, and - she lived In

which one sees on the plate, to he

greatly the mandarin's secretary.

on the tiny island which one sees at

forbade such a mesalliance, and the
lovers eloped, and concealed . them

many, many years ago. He's getting
