Turkey Talk

I happened upon this Johnson Brothers Barnyard King plate at one of the local antique shops several months ago.

One plate all by itself, I could only imagine what an entire dinner service would look like.


I'm going to display it for the Thanksgiving season, the colors on this picture do not do the piece justice, they are all hand engraved and made in England.

Barnyard King, what could be a more fitting name.

It would be a luxury to have a whole set of these dishes to use for Thanksgiving dinner. What a beautiful table setting it would make.

Jo, Some times if I see a pretty plate at the goodwill...I will buy it. You can give someone a plate of cookies, or bread, or cake, on one pretty plate as a gift. I am loving that big old turkey plate. :):) xo, Susie
