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.
