INTERNATIONAL WILLOW
COLLECTORS

WELCOME

We’re a group of collectors who passionately share a love of the Willow Pattern. What started as the first-of-its-kind willow convention in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1986, became the International Willow Collectors (IWC), with a purpose to promote and increase the collecting, knowledge and enjoyment of Willow Pattern china. Our membership spans the United States, Canada and other countries around the world. We hope you’ll join us.
