Turkey Plates To Whet Your Thanksgiving Whistle

Five years ago today, I posted about Thanksgiving plates, featuring turkeys on the front.
I thought it would be good to revisit...
So, here are a few classics to whet your Thanksgiving whistle!
Beginning with this wonderful, brown transferware plate by Wedgewood called "His Majesty."

Johnson Brothers has many turkey plate patterns to choose from.  This one is called "Woodland Wild Turkey."
Notice the detail around the rim.

Another version of the Johnson Brothers plate, called "Woodland Turkey."
I actually found these several years ago at Tuesday Morning for $5.99 each!

And my all time favorite is this plate, also by Johnson Brothers, named "Wild Turkeys."
The rim is the same as my Windsorware Harvest plates and would mix nicely.  
They are highly collectible and currently priced at $89.95 at Replacements.  

"Barnyard King," by Johnson Brothers is a really fun plate.  I'm a squirrel nut (no pun intended), so if I ever came across this in an antique store, I would definitely buy it!

Another Johnson Brothers plate, "Autumn Monarch" is splendid with the pumpkin and fall leaf border.

"Queen's Myott," by Churchill is still around.  I've seen them in the past at Marshall's
and TJ Maxx!

Spode also has quite a few patterns to choose from, both vintage and new, like this one.

Spode's "Wild Turkey" plate has a lovely dark brown, almost black rim.

The brown transferware Spode, "Celebration Turkey" plate.

When it comes to Thanksgiving, I'm very traditional and love the Thanksgiving cliche elements.  The formula that works for me is paisley or plaid, turkey plates, fall flowers, leaves and gourds, stag horn flatware and jewel tone crystal. Hey, why re-invent the wheel?
Actually, I am forced to reinvent the Thanksgiving table this year in our new dining room.
New room, new beginnings.
Hmmm, wondering how I'll set the table for Thanksgiving, 2016?

I'm sharing with Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
Also, French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.
Pin It!

Thank you for giving us some Thanksgiving inspiration! Love all these plates. Hopefully you won't stray too far from the Ralph Lauren feel that you are such an expert at.....:) It's such a classic look and you do it so well.

Delores, no doubt your Thanksgiving 2016 table will be exquisite. I'll be eager to see what you do. I don't have any turkey plates, but will be using my Juliska harvest plates as accents or possible my Olde Avesbury by Royal Crown Derby. It's always fun to come up with a different table each year. Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm with you; the Johnson Brothers Wild Turkeys is magnificent. I might be willing to slowly collect them, even with their high price tag. Your paisley cloth is lovely for your "new" dining room look. Have a happy holiday! Cherry Kay
