Gracious Living with Phyllis Hoffman DePiano: Scenic Setting

For many years, I hosted a needlework seminar in charming Colonial Williamsburg, the beautifully restored location of some of our country’s earliest and most important events. I looked forward to that workshop all year long for a number of reasons. It was so much fun meeting the attendees and participating in classes led by incredibly talented stitchers, but I especially loved being surrounded by all that history. When I found these commemorative plates by Wedgwood honoring this enchanting site, I just knew they would be perfect to display in my dining room. Made from a cream-colored ceramic called queensware, the plates feature 12 scenes from Colonial Williamsburg engraved from drawings by artist Samuel Chamberlain.
