After a truly exhaustive search for a new set of flatware at all the local stores (***, ***,***, etc.) failed to turn up anything other than the same old same old, I was ready to give up. Then someone at work recommended Overstock. This particular set is amazing! It is extremely heavy, and the pieces are larger than most, so much in fact that they did not fit in my existing holder. But that was fine - I got a new holder that was just right for them. The design is lovely, reminiscent of the medallion ceilings you'd find in the old South. The pattern is centered and stamped perfectly. The edges of the pieces are smooth and will not cause injury to your diners, always a plus! The pieces are seemingly scratch-proof. I have run them all through the dishwasher multiple times with no loss of sheen or spotting. The serving pieces that are included are also phenomenal and are not just add-ons with no purpose. They are large and will do the job easily! After a week I went back to overstock and bought another set.

We got new kitchen this year (2011) so that's why we decided to get a new flatware. The description in overstock.com was exactly same as what we received. The package is kind of poor because each group of this flatware coming in simple clear plastic bags, but it doesn't matter, the product is great, strong and very shining. I can say great products...

After reading the great reviews, I still had my doubts. So I purchased another set which was modern, and had great quality stainless steel, only to realize the simple Nordic design showed every fingerprint and water droplet. I was constantly polishing and wiping....not what one gets stainless for. Returned that set, and got this one, its polar opposite, and have been delighted every day with the purchase. Bought two sets to have enough for buffet, and parties. This set is ornate, exquisitely styled, and shines beautifully when the sun hits the pattern. This one is almost Renaissance in its design, and the Medallions on the handles are the highest quality of carving. Beautiful edges that glint and gleam make this an interesting design to have on the table, or to place in a caddy. The pieces are quite large, so I needed to find an especially tall caddy to support them. They look elegant, even in that casual array. They wear beautifully, and wash easily. A small touch with a cloth removes any marks on the shiny spoons, so I am not spending my lifetime trying to keep this set looking gorgeous. 18/10 wears like iron, and frankly, I prefer this set to my silver, and it works just as well in a formal setting...perhaps even better.
This flatware grabbed my attention the first time I saw them. Thought I continued looking at other sets, I could not keep from returning several times to this one. There are hundreds and hundreds of same-same looking flatware sets out there, but none at all like this one. They are extremely heavy and very well made. They are quite shiny, which I wasn't really ready for (I'm more of a brushed silver kinda girl), but the design is so unique and delightful that I am willing to adjust my criteria. They will truly be a conversation piece for my dinner table!
I'm confused, it's advertized as stainless 18/10, yet a review said it was pewter and brass. How does pewter and brass hold up after years of use? Does it taste metalic? Brass is gold and this looks silver. Please explain...ashlandoregon on Jan 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I apologize for the confusion. The finish on the flatware is "Pewter, referring to the color. The flatware is stainless steel and has no pewter or brass on it. Thank you.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 30, 2013
I noted that as well, but this is stainless steel, perhaps with a different metal in the handle of the knives. What you see if pure stainless, and high quality at that. The sheen on the flat surfaces of the carved handles is stunning.lifzjoy on Oct 3, 2013

These pieces are larger than my other sets, which is also in tune with the very ornate pattern. Makes the pieces substantial, and rich feeling. If you have small hands, or are a petite woman, this set might be off-putting. As tall people, we love the substance and heft.lifzjoy on Oct 3, 2013
It says dimensions are 12 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 4 inches high. That seems like giant sized. What piece is that for.dianefredgant on Dec 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
None of pieces are that size. That is the box's description. These pieces are about 15% larger than normal flatware. Very elegant and have a great weight. Perhaps not for a small hand.lifzjoy on Oct 3, 2013
This set washes beautifully. Pewter finish is just the color behind the shiny medallions on the handle. That gives the pattern depth, but it does not create any problems. The surface pattern is quite bright, and reflective. Beautiful glint when the sun hits it. So the "pewter" mentioned is simply the background. No pewter seems to have been used. More like a nickel finish to give contrast to carved forefront. Looks just like the photo.lifzjoy on Oct 3, 2013
Where do I see where the flatware is from? I don't want anything from CHina!pooze1 on Feb 16, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
