It amazes me how a persian traditional teardrop design should be known throughout the world as "paisley", the name of the town in Scotland where it was mass-produced, and that "Blue Willow" china, an invention of a Staffordshire pottery manufacturer, should have exported the "chinese legend" all over the globe. Such is the power of 18th cent. corporate advertising.
