Pfaltzgraff. Now that's an interesting name. Definitely not English. With a name like that, the product isn't obvious, either. But they sell ceramics, plates, dishes and pots, all with beautiful designs, where design can here mean anything from "plain white but still pleasing to the eye in shape and size" to "man, would you look at that floral design, that is gorgeous." A big concern with buying something like plates or cups is the quality and the durability. But Pfaltzgraff has been doing this business since the 1800's, so its quality is as assured as their name is unusual.
