Castleton Sunnyvale was introduced in 1957 and features an exceptional porcelain body decorated with a floral design of muted lavenders and blues that are perfect for springtime. The beautifully crafted flowers combined with a scalloped gold pearl edge elevated this pattern to ‘classic’ status. Castleton China was started in 1940, and was famous for hiring a number of world-class artists to do design work, including the renowned Eva Zeisel. So there was a culture of excellence in design at Castleton, and Sunnyvale is a great example of this. This pattern was discontinued in 1972, but its popularity has never waned, and to meet the demand of the most discriminating home decorators, we carry a great selection of place setting, serving, and accessory pieces.

Cambridge Glass Rose Point-Clear was introduced in 1934 and was an immediate success. The design sophistication in this crystal is unmatched, including a flared optic bowl with splendid rose etchings and a magnificently sculpted stem. Company literature states that “As developed for glass adornment, the design, taken from a rare piece of old lace, makes an unusually attractive decoration.” The Rose Point-Clear pattern made our list of “Top 10 Classic Etched Crystal Patterns” and again, if you are looking for REALLY out-of-the-ordinary crystal with a high “Wow” factor, this is your pattern.
Wallace Silver Rose Point sterling is a great complementary pattern for the two patterns above. This weighty design features symmetrical scrolls accented with intricate piercing. Wallace Silver was started in the early 1800s by Robert Wallace, son of a Scottish immigrant and silversmith James Wallace. Rose Point was released in 1934 as part of the Third Dimension Beauty collection of Wallace designer William S. Warren. The Rose Point crystal and sterling designs were marketed together and were especially popular on formal tables during the middle of the 20th century.
