Lovely vintage ironstone 20-piece dish set is by Johnson Brothers in the Athena pattern. This is a mixed lot of the same pattern from different eras. The ATHENA pattern is all the same, however the stamps on the back indicate different years of production (see photos). Some are from, I believe the 1950’s while the others could be around the 1980’s.  Set includes:1 platter (JB stamp), 1 covered bowl (JB stamp), 3 salad bowls (Athena stamp), 5 custard/fruit bowls (1 Athena, 4 JB), and 9 dinner plates (5 JB, 4 Athena).

Use set for use in daily dining, or in a wedding or party, on display filled with your treasures, or repurposed into wall decor and items such as pincushions for the urns. Additional pieces can be found to complete the set from other sources such as Etsy. All pieces are in excellent vintage condition with notes made before. Perfect to add to your farmhouse, flea market, boho, shabby, cottage chic, vintage, farmhouse, or eclectic decor.
