The formal tea service and dishes are from the Fransican line of fine china. The pattern name is Encanto (Spanish for enchanted, but probably should have been called Incanto because there was always an incantation or two flying around when it was being used on the set of Bewitched). We believe the color to be Magnolia. According to O' Gallerie's auction page, the service for 8 (62 pieces) recently sold for $225.
The tea service is seen in the movie Bell Book & Candle, as well as in several episodes of Bewitched, usually during formal gatherings. One place of note is in Dick York's final episode, 170, Samantha and Darrin in Mexico City, at the banquet.

The Formal Dishes in Color in 170
Stephens's every day dishes for the first five season are from the Harker
The Harker Pottery Company of East Liverpool, Ohio made pottery since 1840, and this is evident on the hallmark on the back/bottom of their pottery. The company made many types of pottery, but by the Civil War was making quantities of yellowware from native clays. They also made Rockingham-type brown-glazed pottery and whiteware. The plant was moved to Chester, West Virginia, in 1931 and the company made a name for itself with popular dinnerware, which was sold nationally. In 1971 the company was sold to Jeannette Glass Company and all operations ceased in 1972.
Dishes Used in Seasons 1 and 2
The Harker Pottery Co. Dogwood Tan Pattern
This pattern is called "Springtime," and is part of Harker's popular Cameo Ware line that was popular in the 1950s and early 1960s. The color is called Pink Cocoa Over Ivory, and is one of several Pink Cocoa Cameoware patterns.
The Every Day Dishes
Other items to look for to complete your Bewitched kitchen set decor are the canisters, coffee cups, and children's dishes used on the show.

Sunbeam kitchen appliances from the time were also featured on Bewitched. The Sunbeam Mixmaster Model 12 was featured in the kitchen background for many years (on counter to the right of the refrigerator). This prop was underutilized on the set. Even when Samantha was preparing food, it stayed in the background while she opted for a hand-held mixer.

There was also a chrome and black Sunbeam toaster featured on the counter quite frequently.

The foyer decor changed throughout the eight seasons that Bewitched was on the air. Particularly, the wall paper was redone several times throughout the show. The wall hanging changed depending on the script. Sometimes there would be a picture, yet other times a mirror. The Rembrant Girl with a Broom print is readily available through art and poster shops today. A watchful eye may also find replicas of the mirrors.

Designing a Room Inspired by Bewitched
The kitchen went through a makeover after a fire destroyed the Screen Gems sets before the seventh season. There are two distinct looks for a Bewitched kitchen. In this scene, note the Fridgidaire Flair stove, pans, spice rack, and clear glass coffee pot.
The living room set also underwent some redecorating. This picture illustrates the distinct olive drab furniture, patchwork pillows, heavy dark wood tables, and shag carpet that dominated homes of the early 1970s.
For those that prefer a grander scale than Darrin and Samantha's taste, here are some scenes where the living room got the royal treatment.
