Growing up, most of our family meals were served on plates bearing the Wheat pattern by Franciscan Ware. This was the everyday pottery my parents selected when they married.
At some point, most of these dishes were pushed to the back of the cabinets. Plates and bowls of a more contemporary design and color took their place.
However, it is these dishes that remind me most of those family meals.
I now have only the sugar and creamer, shown in the first photograph, along with this serving platter, a serving bowl and three bread and butter plates.
Their amber color and wheat sheaves are perfect for this time of year.
There is also something special about displaying them now, as my parents were married during the month of November.
Happy Friday and weekend!
