I recently purchased these plates along with several other Fiesta Collection products. It's really beautiful and bright. Also it is important to mention that each piece was well packaged to the point where it would be almost impossible to break it. However, I read a review on these plates and someone had said that there were a lot of smudges on the plates and pieces because of being handpainted. I looked past this and figured hand painted means a little bit of color out of the lines and it adds uniqueness to the pieces. However, what I didn't anticipate was actual finger print smudges. On several pieces there are actual smudges that your can tell are a finger print. It looks awful with a big black fingerprint on a white section of the pieces. Because of these, I am less dissatisfied but they are still very beautiful pieces.
Overall, I'm very pleased with the color of the plates and bowls. My only complaint is that I am not used to such TINY coffee mugs... I also wish the 'saucers' were bigger so that I could at least use them for salad plates... either that, or it would be nice to have the option to purchase salad-sized plates seperately.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colors were bright and vivid. Very "happy" colors.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I am so far very pleased with the weight and density of the stoneware. The hand painting is really nicely done.

I have been ordering this collection for my kitchen and I am still adding to it. My family and friends love my kitchen so much. The first place they go to when they arrive at my home is my kitchen. They love the colors and my Viva Collection is a big hit everytime. I would recommend it to anyone looking for COLOR in their kitchen.

This product is pretty but everything started to show cracks after a week of very little use. Items were washed by hand, no dishwasher or microwave but cracks in cups and back of plates. Costly mistake would not recommend or buy again. To late to return.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. all pieces starrted to show crackss within a few weeks of washing by hand, no dishwasher or microwave use
How accurate was the on site description of the product? ok
Dishes arrived with no breakage, well packed, but each piece had 3 stickers to scrape off, which the dishwasher even failed to accomplish. They are colorful yes, but almost gaudy. Painting is not the best quality, very uneven. If I had not unpacked all and removed their stickers, I would be returning. Not a good value for the money.
