The dishes themselves are beautiful. The draw backs are that I haven't had them that long and the glaze is chipping off already. And I hand wash my dishes. Also as other reviews have said they do not do well in the microwave. The dishes soak up much of the warmth, making the dish VERY hot to the touch and the food is barely warm. If I had to do it again I would not purchase these dishes. It's disappointing because they are very pretty dishes.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is fine.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Chips to easily.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate.
If I had read the reviews prior to ordering, I would not have proceeded with my purchase. I loved the size of the plates and the depth of the bowls. The mugs/cups are very nice and fit comfortably in your grasp. When I called to complain about the workmanship I was offered replacement and treated with courtesy. The design and color of the dinnerware was beautiful, even more so than the picture shows. Unfortunately the flaws were too obvious to ignore, even at the price offered. I loved them so much I even considered keeping the replacement set that arrived even though it was just as bad as the first I received. But reading that the glaze cracks and that they heat up in the microwave by others reviewing the product caused me to call to return the second set.
Overstock stands behind their customers satisfaction and gives me confidence in future ordering from them.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good Color Comparison
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I returned the first two sets of 16 piece thinking I had received seconds. They had drip marks, pits, runs and overall terrible quality.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was very accurate. I absolutely love the color and design of the dishes.
I bought 2 sets of these plates after looking a long time. They really are beautiful but I am a microwaver and they are not good for that. They get unbelievably hot in the microwave, hotter than the food on them. One of them formed a crack down the middle shortly after I got them from the microwave. If I didn't need them for a dinner party right away, I would have returned them. If you dont microwave on your plates, then they're great for you.
Although these dishes are pretty, the glazing on the bottom rim is non existent which causes the dishes to soak up water in the dishwasher. Even though they are dry when taken from the dishwasher, once stacked in the cupboard, they become very black around the rim with MOLD. They also tend to look grey in color due to the water that has soaked in. I called Overstock to return these and was told by Customer Service that my mold problem was due to user error, that I should dry my dishes before I put them away. Really? I will never buy from Overstock again.
The dishes were packed well and arrived safely. We were happy to open them and see that they'll look great in the dining room. We have a framed set of Leonardo da Vinci sketches on the wall (from IKEA - bought July 2012) and the Roman-style laurels look great with it. Definitely glad I bought them. I wish replacements were available,to replace the bowl I broke, but I would have to buy another entire box and I don't have the room. I did find some of these dishes at the HomeGoods store, but they had everything but the bowls (just my luck).
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colors are great, and as shown. It's hard to go wrong with antiqued white.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's a light set of dishes, and they will break if they hit the floor - as I found out. One bowl broken in the process of getting ice cream. The bowls are amazing because they are deep and roomy - great for salad (and ice cream) and soup, and the plates are adorable, as well as the mugs
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fine.
The plates were heavier than I expected and the finish on the set was not good quality. I ordered 2 sets and I sent 2 sets back. The shipping however was fast and was packaged very well.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the color looked nicer in the photos
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I was disappointed to see what looked like running paint drips in the sheen of the plates. The quality of the paint/coloring/ finish was poor and I was very disappointed.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description on the site was ok
I love the pattern on these dishes especially since I was looking for something different with almost an old antique look. The only real thing that disappointed me was the fact that the saucers and the dinner plates might not be deep enough. Especially to hold any food with liquids on the plates without it spilling on the floor. This will probably be just our nice set and I will find other plates for dishes with liquids.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color shown is accurate.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The dishes are great quality not too heavy of a dish and the glaze is smooth.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was pretty accurate but I expected something different than what I received.
