My husband wanted flatware with wider handles to make it easier for him to use. I wanted a silver/gold combination so I could use for casual or formal events. The price is great. The plating is heavy enough that I can put int he dishwasher and not worry about the gold wearing off. The pieces aren't exceptionally heavy due to the metal/s 18/8 composition. I'm satisfied, especially for the price.
For a long time I have been looking for quality gold trimmed flatware to use with my china and the Towle Living Vienna is perfect! It is lovely, doesn't scream "cheap", and when using it with my china and gold chargers creates an elegant table with just a simple centerpiece (& candles from Overstock.com). Easy to care for and does not require polishing before each use unlike silver plate/sterling might so I use it frequently. Like my china I hand wash it. Very nice serving pieces are included and that is a real plus! I know I will enjoy using this flatware many times even with my everyday dishes!
This flatware exceeded my expectations. Nice weight and color. Have not used the product as yet but, when I opened the box and felt the weight and the craftsmanship I knew I had made the right choice. Hopefully we can enjoy the flatware for many years to come.
This set is of excellent quality and beautiful styling, and the gold accents aren't overpowering or gaudy by any means. Upon receiving the package, there were a few pieces that had tarnished gold/steel, but there weren't enough to justify returning/exchanging the item. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase.
Was hesitant about the gold look, but needed it for my new dishes. Well, I couldn't be happier. This is a very classy set of flatware! Just the right touch of gold to be elegant, not garish. Lovely pattern, nice weight, great price AND washes up beautifully in the dishwasher. The added serving pieces are wonderful.
For a while I have been looking for a nice set of flatware. I looked in stores like************* and I couldn't find anything that I would want to purchase. But, when I found this set I fell in love and had to have it. No other store around has a set as beautiful as this one. It is definitely one of a kind. I love opening my drawer and seeing them laying in my new flatware tray.
