A blend of three design motifs gives the French Provincial pattern a distinctive feeling of richness tempered with informal simplicity. Introduced in 1948, the traditional fiddle-shaped outline has beautifully proportioned curves with a narrow decorative border of curling leaves and scrolls to bring out the simplicity of the broad silver panel. This understated design lends itself to virtually any décor and is suitable for both everyday dining and festive occasions. Sterling flatware by Towle. e.
