William Sonoma Home – Knightsbridge Dinnerware – on sale $8.99-14.99 (Made in Portugal. White porcelain, rimmed in color and edged by hand in polished gold or platinum. Dinner plate, charger, soup bowl, salad/dessert plate, cup and saucer available) (above)
A band of classic color, a metallic rim and classic glossy white porcelain, bone china, earthenware or stoneware. This is the combination that makes up one of the most timeless dinnerware patterns around.
Whether dining casually or more formally, it seems this pattern works. I love the idea of sitting around a kitchen table or breakfast area and enjoying a light morning meal on these plates. Oh wait, maybe even better an informal garden lunch or a traditional afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, petit fours and other light snacks. Lastly, can definitely imagine this dishware adding classic style to a table set for a very formal dinner in a grand dining room.
Also think about mixing and matching these with other dishes you might have in your china cabinet…could make for a great tabletop medley!
Love the simplicity. Also, love these prices!!
