A true American classic, Franciscan Desert Rose dinnerware has graced dining tables since 1941, including Air Force One as chosen by Jackie Kennedy and the Presidential yacht during the Nixon administration. The china pattern is as simply endearing as it is famous-softly painted pink roses bloom amidst deep green leaves and natural brown branches in a casual, gracious style. Named after Southwest missions and the wild Rose Rogusa, the lovely design conveys a uniquely American sense of tradition and place. This petite 4-1/2- teapot features the collection’s almond glaze on a clean, round shape topped by a snug-fitting lid. A trail of flowers and leaves make their way across the body, accented by a sweet rosebud-shaped finial and a whimsical handle sculpted in the form of a twisted vine. Filled with four cups of black or chamomile tea, the look is relaxed and inviting, so it’s perfectly suited to for everyday use and enjoyment as well as cozy special occasions. The naturally durable, chip-resistant earthenware ot and lid also go safely into the dishwasher, microwave, and freezer. Add the Desert Rose teacups, creamer, and sugar bowl for a delightfully coordinated tea set.
