    I love dishes! I love to entertain. These are my favorite. They remind me of days gone by. Perfect through the Fall and Winter months, and they just "look" like Thanksgiving. The price is great and the quality superb. They can be used informally or for a formal gathering. I love getting a great bargain on something I truly want and will use. These dishes are something my now adult childred expect to see on the table at Thanksgiving. The only thing I wish is that it were easier to get a set of cups & saucers. The cups are reminiscent of days gone by when you used a cup, not a mug and people knew the difference. Reminds me of my childhood.

      These dishes are absolutely beautiful. I was wishing for them and received them as a Christmas present. They are even prettier than I anticipated. These are elegant and classic. I look forward to having these to display and use during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

        Comments about Johnson Brothers Friendly Village Dinnerware:

        I purchased the 6 piece completer set in the store, got home, checked everything out and there were no stoppers for the salt and pepper shakers, so I returned. I had the associate order for me and it was just delivered today and salt and pepper again do not have stoppers. What's the point of salt and pepper shakers with no stoppers for the bottoms??

              Comments about Johnson Brothers Friendly Village Dinnerware:

              This is a new favorite for me. I really like transferware overall, but it can be overwhelming. This design mixes very well with Mikasa's Italian Countryside. I've got soup bowls, accent plates and serving pieces plus the cups and saucers to serve Thanksgiving this year with the Itl Ctryside bread/butter and dinner plates that I already have. I haven't seen it in person, but the Toscano dinnerware by Noble Excellence might be a good mix too- especially in blue to bring out the sky color in the Friendly Village. I've got rattan chargers in dk brown and bone handled flatware to give it a rustic touch. Still deciding if I will add glasses in cut glass(still kind of heavy, not crystal)to add contrast, or if I should keep it simple with plain glass. Hmmm...

                Comments about Johnson Brothers Friendly Village Dinnerware:

                I received several pieces over the years from my great aunt. She has since passed away and I have decided to continue adding to my collection as I have seen my other family members pieces and have decided I want to have more pieces like them. These dishes are sturdily built. I display mine in the China hutch and use on special occassions but my sister and sister in law use theirs every day. You will NOT be disappointed in these dishes.

                      Been eyeing these for a long long time. They reminded me of my childhood days and fond memories of past holidays especially Thanksgiving. I bought 20 plates and some serving pieces. Used them for this past Thanksgiving and received lots of compliments. I also bought the matching tablecloth, place mats and napkins. Very nostalgic. Love them and will pass on to my grandaughter.

                        This is a old pattern as my Grandmother died in 1971 and these were her dishes. My aunt passed down the set to me a few years ago and I use them as my daily china. I have added many pieces to it and love them! I have no chipped pieces as these are very durable. I allow my grandkids to use them daily. Dishwasher and microwave safe.

                          Always wanted this since college (now in my 40's). Classic design, beautiful finish and now, a great price:)

                          I bought a couple place settings to 'test dine' them on my husband. He liked them as much as I. Went back and bought the 28 piece set. Will get the completer set next.
