Vintage Ridgway English Garden Dinner Plates circa 1970s - Set of Two
A garden must combine the poetic and the mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy. Luis Barragan (1902-1988)
Imagine any sort of garden setting dining experience and you'll see how easily these plates fit in. Breakfast on the sun-dappled patio. A summer salad lunch with your best girlfriend. A romantic starry night dinner with your spouse. Every meal can turn into something magical and memorable when served on these beautiful vintage Ridgway plates.
Made in England during the 1970s, they feature the English Garden pattern which is timeless in its color palette, shape and pretty floral bouquets. It easily resembles ancient patterns from ancient eras - ones that could have touched tables in the 1810s or the 1880s or the the 1930s but also these plates have a fresh and vibrant feel that seem like they could have been made yesterday.That's the beauty of classic Ridgway pieces.
A family-run business beginning in the late 1700s, Ridgway became known in the market throughout their entire history for producing beautiful designs and appealing patterns.
Containing the bright shades of mint, marigold, lavender and raspberry, the English Garden pattern is both old yet new, classic but not stuffy, and colorful but not ostentatious. Like a real-life garden, this pattern offers a gorgeous backdrop for your homemade endeavors and your magical moments.
