Johnson Brothers makes a little night light in “Old Willow,” their iconic blue and white china pattern. It is white with the cobalt blue transfer. The pagoda is made of the same ceramics as the dishes. There is a candelabra base socket inside the pagoda. It has an on/off switch.

I am in love with this Chinoiserie Metal Boot Tray. It is by Home Furnishings by Larry Traverso. It isn’t part of a collection or anything. I can’t find that he has anything else with a Chinoiserie motif.
