Johnson Brothers Olde English Countryside Tablescape

Both Pat and I love classic English murder mysteries - you know the ones set in a quaint, small English village with the "manor" or big house owned by a Lord. Of course it has a Vicarage, a Pub and lots of thatched roof houses owned by kooky, eccentric or slightly peculiar residents. Who can resist it? Well, fortunately, we combined our love of those novels with our love of dinnerware when we found a great pattern of dishes from Johnson Brothers called "Olde English Countryside."
The dinnerware is perfect for Fall  - the colors are brown, tan, rust, burgundy and sage with a hint of blue and yellow.

Flatware is hammered "Colonial Copper" from Horchow

Since it is from Johnson Brothers, the salad plate is square

Pat used two chargers - this one is a "Sage" Fiesta(ware) chop plate

We found these beautiful wooden chargers at Pier 1 at least five years ago

Glassware is "Woodland" by Fostoria

Pat made an arrangement of assorted Fall berries, pods, flowers, and grapevine balls

  1. Oh, I love this! I'm a fan of transferware in general, and I love the pale colors that accent the brown tones of this china. And as expected, your table showcases it perfectly.
