The materials Pfaltzgraff’s dinnerware is made of include
- Stoneware, which is a type of ceramic with clay that is fired at high temperatures. This makes it nonporous and tough.
- Porcelain, which is also fired at high temperatures, but has kaolin in the clay. This gives it a delicate appearance. However, it is not especially delicate. Many of Pfaltzgraff’s porcelain products are safe for the dishwasher and the microwave.
- Glass, which includes frosted and clear. Glassware includes not only goblets, lowballs, and highballs, but wasp and fly catchers, canisters, syrup pitchers, and shades for hurricane lamps.
- Wood is the chosen material for Pfaltzgraff’s spice racks.
- Metal is the choice of their candle holders.
- Fabric. Pfaltzgraff uses this to manufacture placemats and table runners on which to rest your dinnerware.
The patterns that are available include
- Winterberry, which is a sweet pattern of berry sprigs.
- Ocean Breeze. This pattern has bands of ocean blue and green around the edges of plates and lids.
- Tea Rose. This is one of the most feminine of the Pfaltzgraff patterns. It is delicately painted roses. The pattern is seen on their microwavable spatter cover.
- Remembrance. This is a folk-art pattern of a sprig of simply rendered flowers.
- Yorktowne is another folk art inspired design of abstract blue flowers. Each design is a little different depending on the piece. It is found on clear glass items, as well as ceramics.
- Sylvia and Heritage White are both white or cream with textured patterns.
- Pfaltzgraff Village features items of light brown stoneware with a brown, abstract pattern on the item.
- Naturewood. Pfaltzgraff’s Naturewood pattern has the item sprinkled with gardening tools, leaves, bees, dragonflies, and birdhouses. They are even found on the curtain or shower hanging hooks.
- Mission Flower. This is a bold Pfaltzgraff pattern with white flowers against deep red and tendrils. It is even found on wine goblets. Once again, the pattern depends on the item.
- Cappuccino. This is somewhat more sedate, with the dinnerware being the color of cappuccino cream, as well as ridges around the rims of plates and saucers, and the bottoms of cappuccino and latte mugs.
