Lilacs originated in Eastern Europe and Asia and were brought over to America by colonists in the 17th century. Although they weren't native to the United States, they quickly became popular with Americans. Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew these shrubs in their gardens, and lilacs were grown in America's first botanical gardens. Salisbury Bone China of England designed this classic teacup and saucer, pattern number 2299 and called it Lilac. This might the perfect gift for a housewarming, friend, teacher or caretaker.
