I am so happy about my set of Denby Regency Green dishes from Overstock.com! (bought 2 for the price of 1!)
The details were correct (even distinguished that the mugs were a specific style, which they were upon arrival)
No damage. More than enough packaging! You could have dropped the box out of a truck and they might have been fine.
Will definetly order from this website (overstock.com) again if they have more in the set.

I searched for nearly 3 years for a new set of dinnerware, and then I found these! I received my order in just a few days and while I cannot personally speak to the wearability of the dinnerware YET, I am thrilled with its appearance. The weight is perfect...not too heavy, not too light....the size is perfect...plates are normal size, not like the platter-size plates that tend to be showing up in a lot of the dinnerware these days. The color is gorgeous and the price, while expensive...is SO much cheaper than you can get it on the Denby USA site and even on Amazon. The 16 pc sets are $$$-$$$ MSRP...so I was happy to get them for this price and think I'll order two more sets to have service for 20. I ordered coordinating glassware from the Denby USA site and they are gorgeous...so all in all I am a happy camper. There was ONE mug that had a chip in it but Overstock has assured me I'll have a replacement ASAP. Great service. Based on all the reviews from people who have owned Denby products for years, I am sure there will be no regrets for me.

I have lusted after Denby for years. When newly married, we couldn't afford it, but now 20+ years later, it's time for new dishes and I was thrilled to find this Denby pattern at Overstock at such a great price. Regency Green is one of Denby's longest running patterns. The center of the dinner and salad plates is a soft white, with a green border that is rimmed with caramel. The green is not a flat green either, but a rich, deep glaze (with hints of that same caramel) that gets darker towards the edge of the plate. It is a timeless color that will look good for years. These sets were a particulaly good deal for me because they come with the English beaker style mug which we prefer, instead of the rounder craftsman mug that is generally offered by Denby with their standard place settings.
Made in England, these dishes are definitely not factory seconds. The sets I ordered came within 3 days and were all packed perfectly. Not a broken dish or bowl or mug, so clearly Overstock has gotten much better at packing and shipping. I couldn't be more pleased with them.

I like these dishes. They were a good buy. However, the dishes are little heavier than I would want. They are kind of klunky. The cups and bowls are beautifull. The bowls however are a lot larger than most, so you should not fill them completely. Also they do not stack well in the diswasher.
Overall, I am happy with the purchase and still getting used to using the dishes. I was looking for a set that would hold up well and not get scratched up. I will see with time, but from reading other reviews, it appears that it is a good buy.

These are high quality dishes and practical. You can dress them up for good or use them every day. I have been looking for a good set of everyday dishes that I could use for both good and everyday for a several years now. A trend in dishware has been to make dinner plates the size of serving platters and coffee mugs the size of big gulp drink glasses. I absolutely HATE this trend. It is not practical. Big mugs are hard for elderly guests to handle and they make hot beverages cold fast. Denby's dishes are perfect in everyway. The dishes are appropriately sized, inclusive of the coffee mugs. I couldn't be happier! The price is awesome as well.

We are very pleased with these dishes, which are of outstanding quality. They are beautiful, but also very sturdy. They can tolerate the dishwasher, microwave, freezer, an oven (I expect they wouldn't do well in a blast furnace, however). The shade of green is beautiful and the design of the plates also are striking. There are fewer food spills with these plates because they are somewhat deep. The salad plates are generous such that they can be used for meals, especially if you are trying to watch your weight and make your portions look larger.

Is the Denby made in Great Britain lead free and cadmium free like the Denby made in the USA? I noticed on the British website they do not say it is lead or cadmium free, but on the USA website they make a point that the USA is lead and cadmium free. Do you know for certain?klaireskorner on Apr 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you klaireskorner for the opportunity to help you today with your questions about the Denby Regency Green 16-piece Dinnerware Starter Set. According to the rules about imports and exports set aside by NAFTA, "Any company that imports to the United States and this usually verified by US customs service that "any material that is deemed unhealthy to the public and not allowed to be used in the United States will not be allowed to be brought in by outside sources either." Now as far as the materials, Cadmium Sulfide was used to put a pigment or color into a product to keep its color at high temps. That has been replaced with zinc oxide for the color. Now we all know that lead is one of those materials that is not allowed at all in the US in the use of any material. We hope this was helpful to you about this product and we hope you have a great day. Thank you for shopping Overstock.com.
