Charlotte Moss new Elsie pattern is a seasonal chameleon. In the summer, this treillage design is a hint of the garden without being as obvious as flowers on your plate. And in the winter, one sprig of holly for garnish and it is a modern Christmas pattern without the partridge. Moss, the interior designer gone product, has just hooked up with Pickard for her collection. Pickard also produces the plates for Camp David, so you know this is quality china. Dishwasher-and-microwave-safe, it is for holiday and everyday.
