Dawn Masterpiece China by Franciscan

Franciscan Dawn was part of the Encanto Masterpiece Fine China collection. The Encanto advertisement from 1955 pictured above describes the collection:

You've never seen china so beautiful — you've never seen china so durable — as Encanto in Franciscan fine china. Superb craftsmanship — achieved by no other potters — fuses Franciscan's strong, pearl-toned, china-body with china of subtle nature colors, then encircles them with gleaming platinum, Encanto is a luxury to own — economy to buy. It sturdily resists the hazards of use and will be your delight and pride — morning ... noon ... night - through years to come.

The Franciscan Encanto Masterpiece line also included Birchbark, Encanto, Magnolia, Sandalwood, Spruce, Teak, Twilight, and Willow. There was also a decorated version called Encanto Rose.

Franciscan Dawn Masterpiece China was produced from 1954 to 1981. The platinum trim on this pattern means that it is not safe for use in the microwave.

I am thrilled! There are many more recipes then I expected. I am very excited since my husband often works late and I end up with sandwiches rather then making myself something to eat.. —Barbara Andersen, New York
