This pattern is discontinued but one can find pieces through Replacement Limited.
While living in Winnipeg, I went to an estate auction and the only thing I could afford were these china dishes. I loved the elegance in the pattern but the number pieces did not lend it self to be used often. In the set there are 3 bread and butter plates, 8 luncheon plates and 3 dinner plates.
I think that my daughter may make good use of this china as she plans to mix different patterns of china together.. Although finding china to do this may be a problem as usually one sells all of their china pieces together.
