Franciscan "Picnic" was introdued in 1973 but has that 50's-60's feel. Most of the pieces are oversized to match the bold pattern. It's definitely not fragile.

The unique glass matches the dishes. It has been described as a glass designed for "George Jetson."

The cup and saucer are the only small pieces of this pattern on the table.
Of course, Betty had to dress appropriately.
