Juliska Country Estate china are illustrated with toile landscape scenes of a farm in France. It is available in pink and grey, but of course I like the delft blue pieces best. Cobalt blue scenes that tell a different story on each piece.
They have a feel of Blue Willow, but with a very fresh fun French twist. The cobalt blue mixes with other cobalt stained ceramics, like the Le Panier Collection in this photo, also from Juliska.
Juliska makes napkins in the Country Estate print, too. Their bamboo flatware and napkin ring works beautifully.
Various scenes are shown on each piece. The dinner plate has the estate Main House. The bread plate shows the stables. The scalloped desert or salad plate has the tea cup and saucer conservatory. The edges of the plates show trees, the hen house and a reading pavilion, with a balloon in the air on the scalloped plates.
Featuring narratives of the English Countryside… each piece illustrates a little story with little figures accomplishing tasks on the estate.
The dinner plates and bread plates have a smooth edge. The smaller salad or desert plates have a scalloped edge.
The bread plate shows the stables.
Galivant across the fields on your favorite filly from our stables promotes rosy cheeks and stimulates the appetite.
This scalloped edge small plate shows the conservatory. The hen house and pavilion are on either side of the plate with a balloon in the air.
The Conservatory is a serene place of growth and nurturing, reminding us to spend time with loved ones over al fresco summertime lunches. Our scalloped plate pairs superbly with long conversations and perfumed salads plucked from the herb garden. Or for a solitary respite, spend an afternoon penning sonnets in the Reading Pavilion with a slice of spiced chocolate cake.

Additional side plates are available showing other scenes. This piece shows workers on farmlands of France going about daily tasks.
This piece shows the apple orchard with gardeners and a dog.
I love the little chickens on these.
Two dogs chase across as the gardener walks past the gate to the rose garden with it’s topiary.
Juliska Country Estate Bowls
There are different sizes and shapes of bowls available, too. The berry bowl has a scalloped edge. It shows scenes including flying a kite and reading in the garden.
The cereal bowl has the Hen House with chickens inside the bowl with other scenes of the estate around the outside.
The shallow soup bowl has the boathouse with boaters on the inside.
Too much of a good thing is wonderful, like summer splashing, winter skating, and clandestine rendezvous at the boathouse. Ladle your mother’s homemade chicken soup or pasta bolognese into these bowls, which are excellent for generous helpings.
Cups and Mugs
This side of the little cup shows the conservatory with a little dog and farm worker.
The saucer is illustrated with a kite flier and pheasants.
The mug has scenes surrounding it with a little balloon inside.
These ramekins have show the Main House, Kite Fliers and the Boathouse around the outside. The inside portrays the Tea Party Tent.
The Juliska Country Estate Charger is a larger under-plate with an expanded view of the Main House, Rose Arbor, Apple Orchard, Stable, and Balloon in Delft Blue.
Rolling countryside studded with the estate’s bucolic features on the horizon. Jump on a horse from our stable and gallop over hill and dale for a grand adventure. Whether you are descending from the heavens in a hot air balloon or racing through traffic after a busy day, our handsome charger beckons you to home, hearth, and the abundant fare that the countryside provides.
The service for four includes bowls and mugs instead of cups and saucers, each with different scenes of life on the estate.
Juliska Country Estate
This enchanting collection depicts different scenes that weave a charming narrative of life on a traditional country estate. A duet with our great friend and renowned artist, Deborah Sears in England, this collection is truly a collection of artwork.
Deborah Sears creates beautiful ceramics inspired by her own collection of 17th and 18th century English Delftware.
Juliska is a relatively new brand, founded in 2001 by Capucine and her husband David Gooding. The Country Estate Collection is inspired by David’s grandparents estate.
“This house is the center of my inspiration and references for our brand. Nestled in the farmlands of France, it was home to a glamorous Parisian ballet dancer and a dashing gentleman farmer, who married against their parents’ wishes. They broke all the rules and made up their own. They were soulmates, who filled their house with music, art, friends, laughter and nine children. From black tie dinners, to garden parties to family weddings, my grandparents were legendary hosts who created endless memories of love and living boldly.”
