I’ve never thought much about Matt’s dishes, other than that they aren’t exactly my style (“my style” being, in this case, floral, colorful, heavily decorated.) But he said he thought they were his parents’ dishes that they got for their wedding, and family dishes are my style. So I did a little research…
Yes, this pattern: Village, by Pfaltzgraff. Turns out, Pfaltzgraff started making it in the 1970s; Replacements.com says that it went out of production in 1976, but the Pfaltzgraff website carries tons of it, in every imaginable plate, serving piece, teapot, or snowglobe. Yes, snowglobe.
I’ve always wanted to be able to say, “Oh these? These have been in the family for years.” So, it looks like we’ll be keeping Matt’s dishes. It won’t match all of our Bodanna china (that we’ll register for), but I think it will look great with the brown pieces.
Ooooh: I can’t wait to do a brown and cream theme for Thanksgiving, or for an autumnal dinner party… Yay, china patterns!
