As any one in the art printing industry knows, Pantone Matching System (PMS) is the system by which colors and inks are matched. Pantone created this dinnerware using the numbered colors! Dishwasher safe, and microwave safe, this porcelain dinerware is very well priced. I actually own them and get so many compliments on them. They are only available in two places that I know of. Here, at the Boston Museum of Fone Art and at Fishs Eddy in New York. Makes a beautifully set table and is the best gift for any art director or printer or anyone in the graphics industry.
