"The Blue Danube pattern was inspired by a similar pattern created during the Yuan dynasty (1260-1368 A.D.) in China. It represents the design variation attributed to the German artist Kandler. The flowers in the Blue Danube pattern depict the ancient Chinese symbols of good fortune and happiness. The original design, with some variations, made its way to Eastern Europe, where it has been produced for approximately 200 years."
