Old Willow 'Swirl' Sterling Silver Pendant
The tale of the willow pattern is based on an ancient love story. A peasant boy and princess were in love but the King would not let them marry. He built a large fence around the palace and arranged a suitable marriage with a Duke. Arriving by boat, the Duke found that the couple had already escaped over a bridge to an island where the Gods had taken pity on them and transformed them into immortal doves.
“Every picture tells a story,
Like the Willow Pattern blue,
And true love will reign in glory,
To infinity! Adieu!”
