For years I have wanted to start collecting an official "Thanksgiving" pattern of dishes, and this year I finally made my choice, which features His Majesty, shown here.
His Majesty is also the name of this Johnson Brothers pattern, and this year I've started my collection with the dinner plates, which will obviously be the stars of my Thanksgiving table!
I love the detail around the rim, including the brown floral design which looks almost like toile to me.
I haven't splurged on the matching teacups or mugs just yet (though you can bet the teapot is at the top of my wish list!), but I do have some Johnson Brothers Harvest Time cups and saucers, which I think will do just fine for now. Do you have special dishes for Thanksgiving? I'd love to hear what you use!
