I have purchased these dishes and am thrilled by their appearance, quality, and beauty. Do not hesitate these dishes are worth the cost.Read More
I have a full set of 12 of Johnson Brothers 'Friendly Village' dinnerware. A place setting is SEVEN pieces, so you have rimmed soup plates, cereal bowls, dessert bowls, dinner plates, salad plates and bread plates...and wonderful mugs that are delicate enough for serving guests. I found separately a nine inch dinner plate as well. These get dishwashed everyday and don't dull or chip easily. We love them. Overstock has the best pricing. This service for 8 I purchased (2 services for 4 )I donated for a basket for a charity. The winner was thrilled and left smiling ear to ear.Read More
I have wanted these dishes for awhile. I'm really looking forward to using these for Thanksgiving dinner. The shipping was very fast and they were packaged really well, nothing was broken. The price was right, much less than some of the other sites I found them on.Read More
all us well but one of the large soup bowls was broken and there seems to be no way of getting a new one....so i only have three.Read More
I have wanted this set for nearly 30 years, but could never afford it retail. I now have two sets, and am considering a third. What's nice is that accompanying pieces can easily be found at other secondary sources - I only wish Overstock could find a way to carry those, as well.Read More
Love this set of dishes, contains exactly the pieces I wanted. Have loved this style from the time I was a kid at my Grandma's, who had the same ones. So happy to finally have them. Plan to get more! If you like this style I would highly recommend. Price was just right, very low considering all the pieces in the set. Shipping was great, international shipping, arrived less than two weeks after I placed the order. Dishes were packed good, very well protected. I feel confident purchasing again.Read More
Johnson Brothers china isn't manufactured in England anymore, and I don't like that, but I ordered them just the same. I ordered 3 sets to have service for 12 at Thanksgiving. 28 piece set is a service for 4, but there are LOTS of pieces! They were packaged well for safe arrival and I received many complements on the table setting.Read More
Although it's not quite the same as the "made in England" version which sells for thousands elsewhere, this will work with my family and if one gets broken, I won't be too upset. The scenes are lovely and bring back memories of holiday dinners at my grandmother's house. These are sturdy enough to be everyday dinnerware and pretty enough to be used for special occasions. I will use them for both. Sturdy dinnerware but not heavy. Simply beautiful!Read More
Love these dishes. I looked at many sets and chose these because of the configuration of the table settings.Read More
Order received in perfect condition. Beauitiful dishes!!Read More
