I was looking for a formal dinnerware set for china cabinet and found this nice set in overstock. It is so elegant and well made. I'm so happy with my purchase and would highly recommend it. Overstock shipped it via FedEx and was delivered the third day after my order. I received it very well packed.

I wanted some china, but I wasn't willing to invest several thousand dollars for a higher end set. These dishes look beautiful in my china cabinet, I haven't used them so I can't speak to how well they will hold up over time. The pros are that this set is beautiful, the plates have nice weight and there are several key dishes in this set I found to be missing in other sets. The cons, one of the cups already had a small scratch in the gold, this makes me think that overtime the gold will also come off of the other dishes; the salt and pepper shaker also had some of the porcelain come off at the bottom. I wasn't too concerned since its on the bottom, but I'm afraid this small chip will worsen over time. I think this is a great set for a couple just starting out. Its beautiful and is a really big set, but I don't know if this is something you can keep over the long haul.
the dishes vary in terms of the color, a few of them are bright white but most are a muddy grayish color. Not what I ordered.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The dishes have varying degrees of color, almost all of them are a muddy grayish color, not pure white like they should be. I am not happy with them. they are clearly seconds.

I ordered this set because it matches my grandma's set. I loved this set. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is that the tea cups are small and the set is kind of little lite weight, which I did not like much. But still beautiful and elegant. More importantly, it brings back a great childhood memory :) Thank you, overstock!!
