Levingston Ceramics from The Williamsburg Collection

Country Primitive Gift Ideas Nana's Farmhouse

Levingston Ceramics from the Williamsburg Collection is a collection of dinnerware, bakeware and serve ware that pays tribute to the concept of coordinated dinner services that came of age in the 18th century. Plates in graduated sizes and specialized serving pieces of every variety began being produced in quantity, making tablewares available to far more than the wealthy few who owned them previously.

Knowing the popularity of vintage “farmhouse” kitchens, the original concept for this product launch was to delve deeper into our kitchen’s past by mining the 18th -century kitchens and collections of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. The collection is named after James Tarpley, an 18th-century merchant on Duke of Gloucester Street in Williamsburg, Virginia, whose store, like this collection, offered a wide variety of goods to both townspeople and the many travelers in town for business.

The design inspiration, mainly utilitarian 18th – century British and American objects, was so enticing, we couldn’t stop at the kitchen door. Certainly the collection includes handsome casual dinnerware, artisanal flatware and a pantry full of richly textured woven and hand-printed dishtowels, placemats and napkins.

We celebrate the weaver with textiles that deliver patterns, textures and a lighter tone. Lanterns, lamps and beautiful new treenware additions were based upon pieces found in the extensive Williamsburg collection.

It’s a collection with a fresh “old” vibe just right for so many homes today.
