These dishes have a silvery-pewter ribbed rim, and a cream-colored smooth serving area. They are gorgeous, and also very sturdy feeling. The dinner plates are the perfect size, as are the bowls; they make a nice large bowl of cereal or soup, but not overly huge. The bowls are also easy to drink out of, to finish the milk after the cereal is gone. :) The mugs are exactly the right size, too. Simply the best dinnerware set I've ever purchased in terms of beauty and quality. My only concern is that the pewter rim (and mug exterior) shows a lot of water spots. I hand-wash my dishes due to a broken dishwasher; perhaps air-drying the dishes is the problem. The spots show up quite easily as very dark spots against the silvery glaze.
I bought this set to replace an old Corelle set. The center is the cream color depicted in the photo. The rim doesn't look as brown. It looks like a slightly shiny, graphite gray with a brown undertone. The pieces feel solid and somewhat heavy. They do not pick up gray utensil marks like the old Corelle did. Because they are thicker, and have a slightly larger diameter, I had to bend the prongs on the dishwasher racks to accommodate them. Minor imperfections give a slightly rustic look but the color and finish have a modern look. Overall these dishes are neutral enough to go with most any decor.
I was a little iffy ordering dishes online, but I have to say theses are simply Amazing!! The color is perfect and it even has a metallic sheen to the brown outer edge, I have also notice that the sheen picks up on the color of the room. I love overstock, and I would never take back these dishes. The shipping was fast & not a scratch on any of the plates or cups!
Too hot in microwave. Attractive set , scratches easily, simple clean design. Thought brand name offered assurance of a quality product, but was disappointed. Unsafe for kids to handle after microwave use.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Darker on site.

Well the picture surely does not represent these plates well - I had anticipated a more black sleek classic look, but when I broke open the package, they were more charcoal grey and a hint of shimmer - they do have a rustic lool to them, but I had to "set" my table to determine if I liked them or not - once I set the table, I found out that I really liked them. They are not at all what I would have picked if I saw the box on the shelf, but they are great quality and so unusually attractive!
Love the colors: a rich, creamy ivory and a shimmery charcoal grey with just a hint of a rich brown where the two colors meet. Really striking and lovely. The plates and bowls are heavy and durable. Even the mugs are great - EXCEPT FOR THE DARN HANDLES!!!! I'm not rough on dishes, and the handles on four of my mugs broke off at just the slightest impact with something - such as tipping over in the sink, or the edge of a plate hitting it in the dish drainer. I really wish the company would reimburse me with replacements, but I know it's not going to happen. I'm going to try and find a set of matte black mugs as backup.
We bought this set because of the modern touch it had. I love the black and white together. The only complain I have is that it leaves off fingerprints stains making it look a little dirty at times but at the end I really don't mind it. Perfect set for a two person household.
