I've been looking for dishes that I like and that are the perfect size and shape of all pieces included for over a year now. Finally I came across these at Overstock, and ordered two sets. After using each piece, I really like the feel of them in handling and in eating off of them. The large plates are not gigantic, but large enough for a good-size dinner. The small plates are perfect for a sandwich or dessert, and the bowls are wonderful for a bowl of soup or a stew. The mugs are fantastic. I find many mugs are too heavy and uncomfortable in my hands, but this mug weight and size feels really nice to hold. It's also large enough for heating up a cup of soup. The set is either made by hand or done in such a way that they appear to each be made individually. They do not stack really tightly together, which I think is part of what makes this a delightfully charming set. After using them for a week, Overstock had a sale and free shipping offer, so I ordered up another set to cover future breakage so I can keep these in use longer.
I replaced a rather heavy set of earthenware dishes with this set. I just love them. They are lightweight, fit nicely in the dishwasher (my old ones were oversized and caused some problems) and are a nice size. The coffee mugs are a nice shape - easy to wrap your fingers around and to drink from. Compared Overstock's price with the manufacturer's website and the price is a substantial savings!!
I was a little skeptical about ordering dinnerware through overstock. I have never ordered from this site, I feared they would be delivered broken. I ordered two set because I thought they were beautiful. I received boths sets of my dinnerware today. They were delivered in perfect condition. I just love them. They are not to heavy and oversized or are they lightweight. My last set of dishes were lightweight and chipped over a period of time..I could not be happy with the color and qaulity. They are even prettier that the picture on site. love, love, love

I like this set because it is hard to break. Other fragile type of dishes get easily cheeped during wash and use by me (placing too much energy into that, I guess). This set proved to be cheep-proof totally. Nice size mugs - pleasant feel in your hand, I agree with other buyer, but I can wish for bigger bowls always. Color was a bit of disappointment as it was inconsistent withing set. Plates are more vibrant, bowls are very blunt-green.I am wondering if in blue they are better and should I mix those two?

I just rennovated my kitchen with St. Louisberg green paint (Benjamin Moore) on the walls and Giallo Ornamental granite countertops. These dishes looked absolutely beautiful with this kitchen. My cabinets were cream and my island is cherry honey. The whole kitchen is kind of Tuscany with an natural earth look to it with plenty of warm earth colors. I was pleased with these dishes. They matched the paint really nicely and the brown tones matched the granite.

I really love these dishes! I use them every day. The sizes of the coffee mug is perfect - not too big, but not too small either. The brown and greens work very well in my home, and the design is subtle yet decorative. Food looks wonderful on these plates.

I've been eyeballing this dinnerware set for a few years. I thought they were so beautiful, which made me indecisive on which color. So, I ordered both & decided to go with the blue! The fern does show up better with the green background, but I prefer the color blue. Really beautiful & I think the price is fair.

These dishes are beautiful and have character. (Not too masculine or feminine, my husband loves them also. I showed him pages of other dish sets and he instantly picked these out of the crowd.) The glazing and leaf placement are not neccessarily consistent from piece to piece, but I think it gives the set a little bit of personality and I don't find it to reflect a quality issue. (The quality is excellent, I'm not trying to describe these variations as flaws.) I ordered 2 sets and they arrived all intact with nothing broken. I plan on ordering a 3rd set for backups now that I have seen these in person. The size and weight of each item is perfect, I especially like the shape of the bowls. Deep enough, not cavernous or too wide at the top. If you have a strong Type A personality and demand uniform perfection, these may not be for you. If you appreciate subtle variation and character you will be happy with this set.

This dinnerware set is exactly what I have been looking for....a rustic but classic design. The sizing is perfect...not too heavy or oversized. They seem to be very durable as well. I've used them in my microwave and dishwasher and they come out looking great. I'm very happy with this product.

My order arrived just in time to entertain my family on Christmas Day. I received plenty of compliments on the design and table presentation. The plates and mugs were durable and held up well to the boys dishwashing after dinner. A good buy!
These are very high quality dishes. They have a beautiful pattern and are a nice weight. The mugs are brown on the outside, with the green colors on the inside and there is more brown on the dishes than it looked like in the pictures (I thought it was dark green around the outside edges, but it's dark brown), but it is still a very nice set. I came back and purchased a second because they are so nice and very unique! The are an amazing value, especially for the price.
Just got these today, so I don't know how they will hold up, but love the design and color. We are building a mountain retreat and got these for there. I won't be using them for a couple of months so I can't report on the durabilty. I like that they are not too heavy, as I had shoulder surgery and can't lift anything heavy like my Polish stoneware. Will report back after they are used.
Shipping was super fast, all the pieces were in great condition. The colors were even more beautiful in person! I was surprised that the leaf is not centered on each piece, but that's okay it adds character. Beautiful dishes even my mother-in-law loves them!
Just recieved this dinnerware much sooner than expected. It was packed well. I like the dinnerware but my pieces have a faded looking rim not dark brown as described by other reviewers. I would like it much better if the outter edge was a darker brown. Mine look greenish brown and really look like much lighter than the pictures. A little disappointed but will probably keep them because they are pretty anyway.
Just recieved these in the mail. Delivery was relatively fast and the dishes were well packed and arrived intact. Looks similar to photo, however edges and back of dishes is a rich chocolate brown, not black as it looks in the photos. This actually matches better with my dining room so i was pleasantly surprised. Dishes are not heavy and not huge. Certainly they are not as solid as other stoneware I've seen but i like the more delicate look. The bowls are a bit wider and shallower than I had wanted but they do fit in the dishwasher which is a bonus. Mugs are large enough to hold a proper cup of coffee. Overall I'm pleased. If they hold up and don't crack or chip then I'll definitely order another set.
