I enjoy tableware of all ilks, from “serious” antiques to more light-hearted, fun pieces.  This Peacock Garden set by 222 Fifth is in the latter category. 


I had not heard of their wares before discovering the Adelaide Green & White toile pattern a few years back, but I’ve kept an eye out since then and was happy to find this peacock set for our house in the Cape.


The salad plates are a generous size, and the small bowls are perfect for yoghurt or berries. The peacock drapes himself charmingly across the plate in his luscious turquoise and deep blue feathers. Here I’ve combined it with some Old Williamsburg Blue water glasses by Imperial Glass, also from Replacements. Their sturdy stature and generous size are a perfect match for the heavier weight of the Peacock Gardens plates. The dinner plates are Pillivuyt Queen Anne from Williams Sonoma.
