The shapes of the pieces in the Levingston Collection channel the best of 18th-century British design and innovation. Painted and raised elements on delft, stoneware and redware antiques and excavated shards at Colonial Williamsburg provided the decorative motifs for this durable and beautiful stoneware. Decorative details include a rosette from a cup when Jamestown and Plymouth were fledgling New World colonies, a leaf motif from a commemorative plate, and a border from a delft plate excavated from Wetherburn's Tavern.
Each piece of this Levingston Dinnerware is a creamy off-white with faint brown speckling, visible only upon close inspection. It's a handsome, neutral look that will complement any decor. Each of these details brings a historical tie to an already handsome collection, and also ties the dinnerware together stylistically with the rest of the Levingston ceramics.
