This is "The Friendly Village" pattern that was taken from an original hand engraving.This set is NOT made in England.

On the left, there is a large pine tree , footsteps in the snow heading to the beautiful red church with its bell tower, its windows all lit up with yellow light, and the peaceful village, with another tall spire in the background. Picturing a snow capped barn surrounded by a picket fence, with small birds in the yard and a large, proud, red strutting turkey in the foreground. TWELVE 7.5 Salad Plates.

Picturing a wide view of red buildings, lovely snow banks, and a running stream at the center. Each of the pieces feature a different, (except for the cup and saucer, which are the same) lovely winter village scene with the buildings, farms, animals found in a wonderful place...
The structures are colored in soft red tones, the snow falling is a creamy white, and the lights which are shining from the windows of the houses and church are colored in a wonderful soft yellow... The borders of each plate are a combination of lovely blackish/brown leaves.. I have added pictures of each individual piece, and one of the entire place setting. I have pictured the back of flat plate, the rounded soup plate, and the saucer of the cup. The marks are essentially identical on each of the pieces.These pieces are microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe, and while they will serve beautifully for an old fashioned Thanksgiving AND Christmas, they could certainly be used everyday as well. The dinnerware has never been used, and comes from my smoke free home. And reflect the special packaging required to make certain that these pieces arrive to you safely and in perfect condition.
