Rustic Dinnerware: 1970s Classic Stoneware

Midwinter vintage china sun moon

We’ve got a definite weak spot for 1970s dinnerware we find in our travels, especially the stoneware.

Midwinter vintage china sun moonPatterns from Midwinter, Mikasa and even Noritake go great with table settings based on the days when vintage was new: back to the land, Earth Day, Earth Shoe and The Mother Earth News.

Midwinter’s series of patterns – Sun, Moon and Earth – go literally with the environmental themes of the day, themes that are coming back around for another view, and revival, in our times.

The cups shown are Sun and Moon. We haven’t found Earth yet, but the bands are brown. These patterns can coordinate with each other, or other rustic wares for an eclectic casual or cabin table setting.

We also like the Potter’s Art series by Mikasa, which includes late Ben Seibel designs. They're refined rustic, and very practical.

The stoneware of the 1970s period is heavy and substantial -- with enduring value, like the earth itself.
