The tableware is nice, it seems sturdy and well made. I haven't had any problems with the plates or bowls. The only problem is that my friend tried making tea and when he poured the hot water from the pot into the mug, the mug cracked from the heat. Thinking it was a fluke, he tried again with a second mug, but the same thing happened. I don't really care about the mugs in the first place, but if you do, be sure not to expose them to extremely hot water!

This set is very poor. It cannot withstand heat. The first day I receive this set, I poured hot water in a mug for hot tea, it cracked immediately. Tried with a second cup, same thing.

I have champagne tastes on a beer budget. I shop Overstock to get better quality with unique designs. I can afford Target and Kohl's but prefer the look and feel of higher end goods. This set is pretty and functional but lacked the "wow" factor I was looking for. It compares well to the sets you would get at those department stores. Some of the dishes have small imperfections where either the paint or glaze didn't spread completely across an area -- I mean tiny specks -- nothing outrageous and nothing that will affect the life/use of the dish. I paid just under $60 for this and probably could have found something with a little more pizzazz if I had the time to shop around a bit longer. If you're considering this design, I'm thinking the green would have been a better idea for the pattern and contrast of the inside and bottom of the bowls. It's a good and pretty set. I'm keeping it. Just know that you may find a better bargain for the price at **** or ****. Happy Shopping!

The set was beautiful. I absolutely loved it. I had to return it because as others have mentioned the bottom of the coffee mugs break when you add hot water. It happened to me and I looked up the reviews and my experience was almost verbatim what others had said about thinking it was a fluke and trying it again with another mug. I tried to contact the company direct to see if they had fixed the problem with the mugs and get replacements and after two weeks gave up after never hearing from them... even though they promote themselves as having excellent customer service. BTW... I did not buy my set from Overstock so it's not just an Overstock issue. I got mine at Tuesday Morning. I was very disappointed because I loved the design and the especially the size of the bowl. It was super for cereal!

These items chip and crack very easily. One of the handles on the mugs broke off just from holding it normally. Another one shattered from pouring hot water into it. It was not microwaved and was not cold when the hot water was poured into it. They are very pretty though.
I purchased these dishes and upon delivery, 2 dishes were already broken. But Overstock.com Rocks, because they sent replacement plates ASAP! But alas, we do not even know how this plate got chipped, but it did and these dishes are supposed to be chip resistant! They are the same as any cheap dish set-but they are not really cheap! I am disappointed, I have only had the dishes for 2 months and I don't have kids-we don't have kids and we are careful. We hand wash our dishes ....disappointed!
Love these dishes so much- unfortunately two arrived broken- but a quick chat with Overstock and two more were sent out. Great customer service!! My girlfriend saw the dishes and wanted a set herself but she was going out of town so I ordered them for her and had them delivered to me until she comes back after the holidays! I think it is a great value and good quality!
