The intricately engraved leafy borders features most pieces from this collection are still reminiscent of traditional British china. The old-fashioned style unfailingly charms both collectors and homemakers alike. There are scenes of an old well in a farmhouse that is tucked in the middle of the lush greenery and snow, the melancholic tones of autumn set in an old barn just before winter, a schoolhouse and a bridge covered in snow with the backdrop of an old barn house. The warm tones, noteworthy details and traditional markings they carry make the Johnson Brothers Friendly Village dinnerware collection ideal for dinner parties during the holidays.

It was four Johnson brothers that originally established this fine earthenware humbly starting in England. The tableware consistently expanded until they became staple pieces in the American dining room with their durable, semi-porcelain fine china. The collection includes variations of plates comprising of dinner plates, salad plates, bread and butter plates. Serving platters in different shapes of square, oval and circular as well as the plates all carry the delicately scalloped details on its borders. Johnson Brothers Friendly Village is a worthy addition to any home.

    I bought my Friendly Village dinnerware
    in 1969 and have added to it over the years.
    I use it every day.
    Is it dishwasher safe?

  2. Arthur Says:

    Hi Karen, Friendly Village dinnerware is both dishwasher safe and microwave safe. However I would still exercise caution when washing anything with handles, just as you would when placing stemware in the dishwasher.
