Like a lot of home we have a rooster motif going on in the kitchen. We looked at a bunch of rooster theme dinnerware sets and they all looked cheap with simple non-artistic designs, then we stumbled upon this, this set has a hand painted old school design look to it rather then some machine stamped an image on it, which I'm sure some machine did that but it doesn't look that way. We ordered two sets and the company sent the two boxes in one large box which enabled the one box to crush the other box breaking all 4 of the dinner and all 4 salad plates in one of the boxes. What a lot of people don't realize, I guess Overstock doesn't either, but UPS, which Overstock uses for their shipper, treats all packages regardless if labeled fragile as if their garbage collectors throwing trash around!! Fortunately Overstock.com quickly sent us out replacement plates. For the money this set can't be beat.

my kitchen theme is roosters for our 'nest' that we purchased these dishes for -and- I'm about to take cooking classes from/with a French chef, soooo these fit in well with that ooh la la sense of fun in cooking and eating! they are colorful enough BUT not too much (and mix well with the Provance dinnerware set we purchased as well.......... the downside is that there are no other pieces to match that I've found to purchase that I would like to have as well - to include: the larger pasta/soup bowls and perhaps some serving pieces [not to mention potentially some glassware that might accompany this dinnerware well

Love Love Love my tableware! This looked exactly like the picture and the quality is superb for the price. I had been shopping for farmhouse style dinnerware for months but everything I wanted was either non existent or very very expensive. For whatever reason I am obsessed with roosters lately so I fell in love with this the minute I saw it and the price was perfect! I ordered two sets, they arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Completely elated customer.

I bouight this for a friend who has live chickens as well as decorative chickens all over the house. She loves it. We had a twelve person Thanksgiving party, and the plates looked great. The colors are easy to decorate around, and the table looked fabulous. She has two children, who also love this set. Even the cereal bowls are attractive, which doesn't always happen. I want to add that the service at Overstock was wonderful. Some pieces arrived broken, and they were replaced forthwith, no questions asked. All we had to do was throw out the broken pieces. I can't speak highly enough of this purchase.
I rarely purchase dinnerware that is other than solid, however, this was too cute to pass up. Not the heaviest weight, but a nice porcelain with fun design that allows it to be mixed in with other colors. I chose cobalt dishes that I already had at home, and putting this together made for a fun place setting.
This dinnerware is made of natural clay with no additives. Colors are a bit more vibrant in person. The roosters are delightful. I originally ordered 2 sets of this dinnerware and have just ordered a 3rd so I can have service for 12. I also ordered what Overstock calls 'Luster blue glassware' to go with the dinnerware. These are Amici hand blown glassware whose blue, and probably green, match the color in the dinnerware. The dinnerware is microwave and dishwasher safe. I would buy these again and already have!
