This gorgeous set of stoneware arrived quickly and intact. I ordered 2 sets as a Christmas present for myself and am now packing up my old dishes to give to charity! I love the square shape of the plates and bowls. They're definitely heavy duty and quality items. One word of warning, make sure your cabinets can with-hold the weight of these dishes! 2 sets weigh just shy of 80 pounds!
I have wanted square dishes for a long time and I'm really glad for my purchase. I ordered 2 sets of these so I would have enough. They arrived with one salad plate chipped but Overstock took great care in getting it replaced. The color is beautiful and the plates are very rich looking. I like the size of the dinner plates but one drawback is they don't rotate in our microwave. I'm still very happy with my purchase!
Really love the set of dishes. We love the square plates they allow you to have enough room for all items without food touching each other. The color is rich and deep. We had company after receiving the set and had several compliments on them. I bought one set to make sure I liked them, then bought the second set. The only drawback would be the cups are not 16 oz they are 12 oz, which is fine but misquoted.

I ordered two sets of these beautiful dishes. When they arrived a plate and dessert plate were broken, I contacted Overstock and within a week had replacements sent out. This was the first time I've ever had issue with a purchase, and it wasn't an issue at all. The service department was friendly, apologetic and kept me updated with every step of the replacement process until I received my plates. It was a job very well done. It was another awesome find on Overstock. The colors are beautiful, they have a beautiful gloss shine to them. They are very elegant looking, heavy well designed dinnerware.
From reading other reviews, my imagination ran wild with how they would feel--massive and hand-crafted-like. They are not that; however they are exceptional in other ways. They are hand-painted so that each one is different--even the colors vary (especially the blue). While others might not like this very minimal, maybe even unnoticeable, feature, I absolutely love the uniqueness of each plate. Also the white triangles in the pattern are unglazed--so cool. The mugs are not heavy enough to be hand-hugging but they are more than adequate and the bowls are also adequate but again not heavy enough to call attention to themsleves. The greatest thing about these dishes is personal. While the design is contemporary enough to work anywhere, their brown color is reminiscent of mid-century plates my grandmother purchased one piece at a time through a weekly grocery store promotion. Unpacking gave me an opportunity to share with my daughter how "in the day" most women gathered their serviceware in boxes of laundry detergent and weekly promotions, So yeah, they are nostalgic and sentimental and earthy--reminiscent of home-cooking and family-gathering around a kitchen table at dusk. These dishes inspire me.
When I unpacked the first dinner plate, I thought that the set came with a serving platter I didn't know about...the dinner plates are HUGE. I like it! I'm lucky, because they JUST fit in my cupboard! Beautiful glaze, gorgeous colors, rich decoration - I've packed up all of my old dishes and am giving them away. One dinner plate had some glaze missing along the edge, and there's nothing as nice as the chat function for discussing issues with a representative - instant assistance! I'm expecting that they will send me a single plate. I'm not sending this set back - I'm using it already (except for the bad plate). VERY nice.
Purchased as a gift for daughter's birthday - she used it for our Christmas gathering. Rich color - great presentation on the dining room table. The red and green accent colors are very undertated. Coffee cups are attractive design and generous size. All in all a very attractive and unique addition to any table.
The plates are big enough to put a meal on so you don't have to use smaller plates to put veggies potato etc : on but they are heavy and the bowels are deep enough so you don't have to refill, like with soup. The Cups are big enough too.
Would definitely recommend these dishes. Everything was an exact match
