Completing Johnson Brothers Chippendale Collectible Items

But that doesn’t mean you should just keep one of each, especially with everyday tableware such as the plates and mugs.

If there are eight of you in the family, then you should get at least an 8 set of cups, saucers and plates—the basic items. That doesn’t mean you should end your collection with those simple items. Go broader with more rare pieces such as tea cups, sugar bowls, gravy bowls and a lot more. There are even Johnson Brothers egg platters in the market.
