Beautiful Set of dinnerware, a little on the large side though. I have to be mindful of the size when I fill a bowl of plate with food. They will barely fit in my dishwasher, but they are beautiful and I would buy them again. I ordered two sets and they both arrived in one piece and very fast.
We have looked at several different stores for dishes and finally found these. Decided to check Overstock to see if they had the dishes. They did and the price was much better than locally. Ordered them and they were shipped immediately. When delivered, we opened them and they were just what we wanted. Dishes are wonderful and the service from Overstock was exceptional.
I have had things arriving damaged alot lately, not just from Overstock.com, so I believe the problem to be the shipping company. I was almost certain that there would be some damage to this order due to its fragile nature. But lo and behold, not a crack, chip or broken anything. Excellent! The other reviewers are correct, this is not black, its more of a brown color with beautiful flecks of gold and green. The picture is small, so its easily understandable that the color would not be true to the actual item. The only reason this recieved a 4 star rating is the plates feel alittle thin, so I hope they hold up for the long haul. But overall, with the price being less than what I paid for my last set and this one being prettier, I am very satisfied.
Although I do like the style of this set, the color is not at all as described. It's Brown/Metallic NOT Black. In fact, there is no black in these dishes whatsoever. If you like a larger plate than average, this is it. The bowls are large and deep and the mugs are a great size as well.
We were very pleased with the speed of delivery and quality of the product. There were two broken dishes at delivery and they were replaced immediately with a short computer "chat" with the customer service folks. We have gotten many compliments from friends and family already.
I love my plates. When I first opened the boxes I was a little surprised by the color as I thought they were supposed to be Black/Metalic when in fact I would say it is a marbeled effect with a grey green tint. They are incredible though and I would never return them. So glad I found them on Overstock.

The dishes unpacked with absolutely no damage. They stack beautifully. We have used them for a month and found they are comfortable to handle and come out of the dishwasher looking perfect. Food presents well on the color and shape of the dishes. We love to use these dishes and highly recommend them.

Product arrived in great condition. The overstock packaging and internal box packaging were top notch. All the dinnerware arrived with no blemishes or chips. Color, condition, and material of the items are all top notch. They also stack perfectly. Plates: As mentioned in other reviews, the plates are huge. They just barely fit in my cabinet space, so make sure you measure before ordering. I don't consider this at all a problem, just something to keep in mind. Bowls: Good sized bowls, a little deeper than most which I appreciate. Salad Plates: Good sized plates. Can easily fit bowls and salad plates together in the cabinet. Cups: A little smaller sized than I'm accustomed to, but for a social gathering would work very well (just not ideal for my morning injection of caffeine). They are very comfortable to hold. An excellent set and I'm very pleased with my purchase. Visually and functionally great set of dinnerware. I've only owned the set for a little while, so I'll be sure to update my review if any chipping issues should occur.
