Is the flatware made in the USA or China?
This was my first Overstock purchase and I couldn't be more pleased. After looking and looking for a good quality, "simple" designed, flatware that had a fork, knife and spoon that would actually hold a little food instead of having to peck constantly at the plate to get food onto them, I gave up with the local stores and went online. I was so happy to find this set. After saying all that regarding the largers sized I wanted, I have to say the teaspoon is elegantly smaller which is also what I wanted because it's an actual "tea"spoon that goes great with that sort of setting. LOVE Overstock now!!...

I have two other sets of this same product, and I LOVE it. I have an issue with the condition it was sent to me in from Overstock. It was not packaged correctly, and the box came up completely mangled with UPS tape holding it together. The UPS driver asked if I even wanted to accept the package. Because I was in need of the product for a party, I accepted it. Luckily all the pieces were there. Would not order anything else from this website unless they fix their quality control on their shipping methods.Read More
I love this Villeroy and Boch silverware. They matches my Petite Fleur dinnerware. I am planning to purchase the serve set next time.Read More
Unfortunately you cant see the dimensions of the flatware from the picture because if you could, I would have never purchased this product. The forks are normal size but the spoons are so unproportionate to normal size spoons that this set is unusable. The tablespoon is the size of a serving spoon and the teaspoon is the size of a baby spoon. It makes no sense and this set was a complete waste of money. The no return policy is the real kicker.Read More
It would be nice to know not just the 18/10 or 18/0 but also the weight of the flatware Is it heavy or very lightRead More
I usually don't take the time to write reviews, but I had to respond to the negative review that mentioned spoon sizes. I've just opened my package (2 of these sets and the hostess set), and all the sizes are fine. The spoons are the same size as the ones in the set I'm replacing. For those who may be concerned about this, I measured the length of all the pieces: knife 9.5"; fork 8.25"; salad fork 7.25"; large spoon 7.375"; teaspoon 6.125". If you check the standard flatware sizes (place, dinner, continental), these are right in line, except for the salad fork, which is longer than standard. (It looks great to me, though.) The set is absolutely beautiful, and seems to be of very high quality.Read More
This is a great set of silverware. Simple, clean, and great quality. They have an optimal weight to them as well.Read More
This set is a fabulous buy. I am a long time fan of Villeroy and Boch - their products are excellent. There has been some discussion here on the spoon sizes. So I went to Bloomingdale's to look at a set. I liked what I saw and placed an order for 3 of these sets. However I did not receive the set that I saw in Bloomingdale's. In my sets, the smallest spoon is a teaspoon and it is tiny (6 1/4"), but like those that I saw in the store. The dinner spoon s 8 1/4" long and wide (2" wide), unlike what I saw. I agree with the reviewer who said that this is an almost unusable size - frankly, it is the same size as the spoons in the serving sets! So I called the V&B for clarification. Overstock correctly names that the set includes dinner spoons and teaspoons, and the sizes are what I have stated above. So Overstock did not misrepresent. However, it is not what you might see elsewhere, where the spoons that are included in a set are teaspoons and dessert spoons (7 3/8"). Consider yourself lucky if you received the 7 3/8" size. I wasn't and am still deciding what to do with these strange sizes. I have yet to use my sets. So long story short, Overstock needs to clarify the spoon sizes. Are they standard in each set???Read More
I love my new silverware! I have had it for about 3 weeks now and still love it. It washes well- no spots and I got 3 spoon sizes- all perfect.Read More
I think the quality of this set is excellent. I can't understand the comment that the spoons are out of proportion. A teaspoon is just that! I bought the first set of 40 and have come back to the Villeroy Bosh site for a few more place settings and serving pieces and boy I didn't get the price that the O has. The lines of the pieces are beautifully understated. I would recommend this to anyone who like quality!Read More

Flatware Buying Guide
When selecting flatware, the most important qualities to be aware of are design and metal. These features affect the flatware's cost, durability and maintenance. You'll want to have enough flatware to serve eight to 12 people, plus a few more in case a piece is dropped during the meal and your guest needs a clean replacement. You may want to buy a large set of flatware if you plan on having several guests. There are several flatware pieces you may need, depending on what you serve in the meal and how formal it is; purchase flatware sets to get most of the basic pieces. Remember to care for your flatware appropriately so it always retains its luster.
How to Set the Dinner Table
Dinner tables are set differently depending on the type of dinnerware and what food is served.

Having separate dinnerware sets for both formal and casual dining events is very helpful for setting the table appropriately.
How to Select Stainless Steel Flatware
Stainless steel is the most common material for flatware. High-quality spoons, knives and forks made of stainless steel will be able to withstand regular use without bending or breaking.

When you focus on quality and design, you will come away with a stainless steel flatware set that will look great and last for years to come.

Most Popular Types of Garden Fountains
Fountains add the relaxing sound of running water to any setting. Outdoor fountains allow water to spout, jet, pour or trickle into a basin before draining away. Fountains range in size from burbling rock gardens ideal for tabletops to large pieces of public art. If you live in an urban area or a busy apartment complex, you can use a fountain to create a sense of privacy by masking traffic and other noises. When choosing an outdoor fountain, first consider how much space you have. Many yards can accommodate large pedestal-style outdoor fountains while a smaller fountain will create a focal point in a petite flower garden. The longer the waterfall, the more noise it creates; consider volume when choosing your garden fountain.

Popular Types of Quilts
Out of all the bedding made, quilts may be the most diverse. Quilts are produced in all kinds of colors, patterns, sizes, styles and types. If you're looking for a quilt but don't know where to start, take a look at the popular types of quilts below to learn more about this beautiful kind of bedding. Amish quilts: These beautiful quilts reflect the Amish way of living and feature solid colors, deep hues, geometric patterns and very little embellishment. Amish quilts contain the highest quality of construction and stitching, and, sometimes, the wonderful stitch patterns (scrolls, feathers) contrast with the simple backgrounds of their quilts. Applique quilts: These quilts use a French needlework technique where fabric pieces are sewn onto another piece of material to create a design. Applique is used extensively in the quilting process and is not to be confused with patchwork. Patchwork pieces are joined together; applique is sewn on top of the whole piece. Baltimore album quilts: Baltimore album quilts came from Maryland in the early 1800s. Each block in the design of these quilts is appliqued differently, often in ornate floral patterns. Bangladeshi quilts: These quilts are made with layers of Saree cloth. Saree cloth is silk cloth used by women of India to wrap and fold around the body as a garment. The cloth is usually 40 to 60 inches wide by 6 yards long. These quilts are used as bedding or as decorative pieces. Bargello quilts: Bargello quilts are created with offset squares in an up-and-down geometric "V" pattern. The small squares of different fabrics and the colorful designs make these quilts true works of art. Hawaiian quilts: Hawaiian quilts are not pieced, and they usually showcase a large, symmetrical applique in the center of the quilt. Most often the background is white or another solid color. Patchwork quilts: Patchwork quilts are constructed of many small pieces of fabric which are put together in an improvised or irregular pattern. This is a well-known quilt style, and examples of historical patchwork quilts are found in many museums. Ralli quilts: Ralli quilts, sometimes known as rilli quilts, are traditional quilts made in India or Pakistan. There is an abundance of embroidery as well as applique on the patchwork patterns. Star quilts: Star quilts are created with a large star shape, or several star shapes, dominating the pattern. Wedding ring quilts: Wedding ring quilts are crafted in a design of interlocking rings. This pattern goes far back in history: in the fourth century it was used to decorate drinking cups in Rome. Wedding ring quilts are highly popular and make wonderful wedding gifts. If you're looking for a gift to please an engaged couple, you can't go wrong with a wedding quilt. Bedding always makes a significant gift for the bride and groom, and a quilt with coordinating Egyptian cotton sheets can be even better. View All Quilts Back to Guides Directory View All Quilts
