The pastoral scenes depicted in this 28-piece dinnerware set charm in an old-fashioned way. The set includes four individual place settings, each with a dinner plate, salad plate, soup/cereal bowl, bread/butter plate, rimmed soup bowl, teacup, and saucer. Crafted from high-quality earthenware, this set is fancy enough for entertaining and reliable enough for everyday use.
Scenes on the individual pieces depict English engravings of a snow-covered village, autumn mists, a covered bridge, a hay field, a village green, and an old school house. Each scene is framed with a leaf-and-branch pattern around the rim, completing the rustic look. Introduced in 1952 by Johnson Brothers, the Friendly Village pattern continues to combine countryside warmth with fine English craftsmanship. Each piece is microwave-, freezer-, and dishwasher safe.
