Parchment Red is one of Mikasa's most dramatic formal china patterns, and is now available in a full set at a fabulous price. It was first introduced in the fall of 2004, and was an immediate success for holiday entertaining. The white fine china has a dramatic red border with a bright gold band and filigree design. This complete set is a service for eight, including eight dinner plates, salad plates, rim soup plates, footed teacups and saucers.
Red and gold transform Mikasa's popular Parchment pattern into a version specifically designed for the holidays. The gleaming white china features a wide cranberry-red border lavished with delicate gold filigree. Gold also trims the edge of each piece. This 40-piece set includes eight place settings, each consisting of a dinner plate, salad plate, rimmed soup plate, footed teacup, and tea saucer.
Parchment Red doesn't have to be saved just for the Christmas season, however. A golden wedding anniversary, landmark birthday, or any significant event can be celebrated with this sumptuous pattern. Under normal household use, the dinnerware can be cleaned safely in the dishwasher. Handsomely gift-boxed, the set makes an exceptional gift for that special someone who loves to entertain. --Ann Bieri
