Now that I have two of these pitchers in my possession I feel safe writing a review. I first bought one and love, love, love it! So I quickly purchased another. This pitcher is large, sturdy, and has a classic look, almost roman. I wanted two for bigger parties or just to use one for beverage and the other for a flower vase. They are that attractive. Classic!
I ordered this item for my mother who has this pattern in her dishes and was very pleased to see how carefully packaged it was. They don't charge much (if anything) on shipping, but they don't cut corners because of that. The pitcher came in a large box with plenty of cushion so it wouldn't break. I will be ordering more pieces of this pattern only from overstock.
