At first I hesitated to buy these plum mugs because I read a review that was rated poor about them. But, after giving it some thought I figured that had to just be one of those unexplainable events that probably would not happen again. I had bought the exact same set accept in black a few months earlier, and had to come back for more. Everyone in my family wanted to use one of those mugs for their coffee literally and I did not have enough. They are heavy and easy to hold and they seem to keep hot beverages hot a little longer than other mugs. So, I thought, why wouldn't the plum be the same. Well, I could not be happier with my purchase. It is the same mug as the black, just plum in color and actually very pretty. It also cost less!! Now I just hope they will make more colors. Would buy again in a second.

These mugs are a wonderful deep purple color however, they absolutely do NOT hold 15oz. of liquid. In fact, they barely hold 14oz.! To some folks, this may not be a big deal, but I bought these mugs solely because they purportedly held 15oz. and I am extremely disappointed that they do not. I ordered a set to give as a gift as well, and all must now be returned. Not a good beginning to my relationship with this company! Oh, the handles were too tight for my larger size fingers to fit through comfortably and I was unable to even hold the mug steady. Too bad, they are a beautiful color!
This cane very fast and was as described. The mugs are great and I've gotten many compliments on them.

I'm sure it was just a fluke, because everything I've ever bought from Overstock has been great quality, but these mugs actually CRUMBLED after i washed them once. They're really pretty and appear very sturdy, but they fell into pieces. On a positive side, Customer Service was VERY responsive and helpful about it. This definitely does not change my great opinion of Overstock!
