Product details:

Desert Rose the largest selling pattern in the history of American dinnerware, made its debut in later 1941. It has enjoyed the world's longest period of popularity of any dinnerware pattern produced by a single company. The Rose Rugosa, rugged wild rose of poem and song was a natural design selection. The character of the bloom with its simple delicate petals made it adaptable to hand painting. This beautiful handpainted style pattern is still one of America's favorite casual tableware patterns. In 1964 the sixty millionth piece had been produced and Desert Rose is now on display in the historical Smithsonian Museum. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy chose Franciscan Desert Rose for use in the White House. In Desert Rose, the irregularly scalloped edge of thorny vines creates a believable frame for the fully opened pink roses with their golden centers and soft green leaves. The softness of the design is further enhanced by its cream coloured background. All pieces are microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe. Accessories are also available. Part of the best-selling dinnerware pattern in American history, this covered butter dish exemplifies the informal grace of Southwestern hospitality. First made in California (the name honors colonial California's mission-founding priests) and now in various countries, Franciscan dinnerware achieved immediate popularity when it appeared in the late 1930s and ranks as a prized collectible, particularly the American- made pieces (pre-1984). Apple (1940) and Desert Rose (1941) are the only continuously produced Franciscan patterns. Today's Franciscan dinnerware fulfills contemporary expectations, going safely into the dishwasher, microwave, and freezer. This pattern's subtly painted pink desert roses and green leaves are set against a sand background, and the butter dish's cover has a knob in the sculpted form of a rose bud. --Fred Brack
