Gorgeous set of six (6) heavy duty vintage earthenware Franciscan plates for you in absolutely MINT condition with NO sign of wear whatsoever! Despite being around 40 years old, they clearly were never used -- very rare to find in this popular 70s pattern from Franciscan! The Madeira line was an innovative studio potter shape dinnerware designed by Jerry Rothman with a dark glaze developed by Kathy Takemoto, and was one of Franciscan's most popular patterns.

With varying shades of deep chocolate brown in the background, these plates feature an amazing combination of olive, mossy, and lime green, along with brown banding, and almost a blue-green and tan accent within the curlicue and stylistic flower and vine design. Love the two tiered shape of both the large and the small plates -- besides adding class and style, that depth can really come in handy when your meals are a bit drippy and keep you from dribbling your dinner in your lap or spilling on the floor as you carry your plate to and from the table. The multiple shades of green are especially fetching in this mod flower power delectable design!

You get three (3) large plates and three (3) small plates, and each looks as brand new as the other -- no utensil marks or loss of gloss anywhere! Large plates are each stamped, "Franciscan," on the back. As expected and normal with this type of stoneware, all of the plates have the usual pinpoints on the bottoms from the manufacturing process (those are the small white dots you see on the bottom of the plates). A glorious combo of rich, deep greens and browns make this set a perfect fit for your dining table that not only brings a bit of 70s vintage to your home, but also complements today's earthy design tones. Can't wait to see who snags this marvelous set and shows what fabulous taste us etsyians truly have!

Approx. measurements:
3 Large Plates each 10 1/2" x 1 1/4"
3 Small Plates each 5 3/4" x 1"
