Imagine a snow globe. Peace and quiet, a silent night of snow falling ever softly. So ideal.
These Royal Stafford's Christmas Home dinner and salad/ dessert plates, hands down, capture the essence of the peace and beauty of the Holiday season-a warm, inviting home, decorated and ready for a gathering of loved ones.
Framed by a border of charcoal gray and dotted detail this beautifully illustrated pencil etching of a home, framed by a lovely cream colored background, is brought to life by deep colored bows, wreaths, garland and, of course, the lush Christmas tree inside a festive home. Cloud shaped snow is kept at bay outside while a Victorian styled lamppost displays a seasonal spiral wrap of garland.
And the shine.The heavy glaze is perfectly uniform and leaves each plate with a highly polished appearance (see last photo). A totally beautiful and nostalgic presentation...very English and reminiscent of Dickens.
