His Majesty by Johnson Brothers is high-quality, rimmed, scallop-shaped earthenware, with a regal tom turkey spreading his plumage in the center of the plate, and an embossed rim strewn with nuts, fruits, berries, and vegetables, all colored in lush earth tones. The outside rim features a thin, painted cable design. Designed from an original engraving, the tom turkey on His Majesty made his first appearance as an accent plate in the tremendously popular Johnson Brothers Friendly Village multi-motif pattern. Demand for the accent plate was so great that Johnson Brothers introduced His Majesty just two years later. Customers have enjoyed the quality and durability of Johnson Brothers china since 1882.
Gorham Crystal produced the dazzling Cherrywood-Clear pattern from 1960 to 1999 – a testament to its timeless appeal! Cherrywood-Clear features crisscross and fan cuts in a bowl that flares at the top, a multi-sided stem, and round foot. Gorham, originally known for its high-quality sterling silver, was founded in 1831 on Steeple Street in Providence, RI. Over the 180 years the company has been in business, it has produced a multitude of silver patterns, most notably, Chantilly, a household name, and the best-selling flatware pattern ever produced. In recent years, Gorham has moved into other tableware areas, including the production of exquisite crystal, like Cherrywood-Clear, and high-quality china.
Introduced in 1970 and still in production today, Towle Queen Elizabeth I sterling showcases classical scroll and plume design that perfectly complements the His Majesty china and Cherrywood-Clear crystal patterns. The history of Towle Silver is rooted in the Moulton family of England. The company is founded on the craftsmanship and artistry of the Moulton family of England, who over six generations of silver making, raised their artisanship to a high art. A young man named Anthony Towle would join William Moulton IV as an apprentice. When Moulton retired, Towle and a partner, William Jones, bought the Moulton family stock and formed Towle & Jones in 1857. With such a long history and distinguished tradition, Towle's Queen Elizabeth I is a pattern that resonates with skill and pride in craft.
