Thank you Overstock for delivering quickly. The description says "BONE CHINA". These are not, these are fine china-even says so on the back of the items. I AGONIZED for weeks as to which dishes to buy. I wanted bone china, I searched bone china, I read carefully to make sure the description said bone china. Bone china is lighter, more translucent. These are heavy and frankly a bit dingy. There were much better choices for me in "Fine China" that were similarly or lower priced. I feel disappointed and hustled. These are not white in color they are more greyish and almost burgundy red. The colors are not as pictured in the photo.
I love this set, it is absolutely perfect, and very good quality, it looks exactly like in the picture. I loved it so much, I did a search of 'Red Vanilla Panache rouge dinner set' and it came up with a matching espresso set, which I also bought, and also love. Both sets arrived very well packaged and everything safe and sound.
I love these dishes. I purchased them because I wanted something to use for more casual entertaining and these certainly fit the bill. Used them for Christmas dinner along with the IMPULSE Milano Flutes and they were beautiful together. Thanks again Overstock!
