When these dishes first arrived I was very happy with them. After having them for 3 months I have noticed that the unpainted portion on the bottom of the dishes promote mildew growth. All of the plates, bowls and coffee mugs have unpainted stoneware on the bottom and all have grown mildew. I have had many stoneware dishes and this is the only time I have ever had this problem. Overstock has a short return period so I will be giving these to charity. I also have the cannister set and am having the same problem with the interior. I have washed and dryed the cannisters numerous times and continue to have the same problem. I have ruined many packages of sugar and flour. I let the cannisters dry for days before filling them and the moisture still intrudes. Very frustrating and disappointing.Read More
I was so happy with these beautiful dishes - but two weeks later they have fissures throughout the stoneware backs - they were supposed to be dishwasher safe and they are now ruined and uselessRead More
This is a gift for my daughter for Christmas. She has a few items similar to the product pictured, I was soooo happy to see that Overstock had exactly what I wanted. I searched all over the internet for the dinnerware, but could not find anything. That is why I was so disappointed when I received them and found that they did not match what my daughter has or what was pictured. I will keep the dinnerware because I cannot find anything similar to what my daught has. I am very disappointed.Read More
I figured these beautiful dishes were made in Europe somewhere, but I was wrong. For a starter set, these were a perfect gift.Read More
It is a nice set, a lot of different colors so goes with a lot of different schemes. It would be nicer to have salad plates with it too.Read More
I was so pleased with the dinnerware I ordered when I opened the box. However, as time went by, the dinnerware started chipping and fishers started popping up. It broke my heart. My house was on the 2 Arsons within 30 minutes of a house around the block from my house. So I really needed them and did not send them back. I would like to order another set, but I'm afraid to take a chance.........Read More
I love this set, I recently ordered my third set so I would have service for 12. When I unpacked the set I found that several pieces had chips on the rims, and I did not receive one of each pattern in the bowls or plates. Overstock took care of that by sending me a new complete set to trade out the chipped ones and to make sure that I had a bowl and plate with each fruit pattern. They are great to make things right!. The others are going back with the shipping label provided by Overstock. I will purchase again and again from Overstock, they stand behind their products.Read More
Within just a day or two of using I started noticing chips on the rims of the plates and bowls. Very low durability.Read More
Liked everything I purchased as soon as I opened it. Well packed which insures whole pieces. Congrats on a great product.Read More
3 items chipped and replaced with one more chipped item. painting not as accurate as I had from other tuscan items.Read More
Questions & Answers
Thank you for shopping with us fancynanci. It appears that the problem is not a reoccurring problem and the majority of customers have not reported any issues. Have a great day.
Have they addressed the mold issue on the unfinished bottom of these plates? I would like to buy, but the reviews are not great and I certainly don't want them to get moldy.
Thank you for shopping with us fancynanci. This was not a reoccurring problem. I would also say that the total number of reviews do not come close to the total number of units sold. Have a great day.
