Franciscan Ware Floral Pattern, England ca. 1980’s

As you can see, I like bold, bright coloured dishes for the most part.   They just look so cheerful.

They are Franciscan Ware made in England.  A very kind friend researched and found out the name of the pattern was Floral.  All Franciscan ware was made in the US until 1984. After that, Franciscan ware production was moved to England. The Franciscan brand became part of a group of companies known as WWRD, an acronym for “Wedgwood Waterford Royal Doulton.”   So these would be dated after 1984.

There are 4 dinner plates, 4 luncheon plates, 4 soup bowls and 4 dessert bowls, one covered sugar and one vegetable bowl.  All the dishes are in excellent condition, with little evidence of usage.  Nice shiny surfaces.  Some of the dishes have slight crazing in the glaze, but really not that noticeable.

These will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte, ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa

Priced at $ 85 for the set.

Please note these dishes are now SOLD!!!
