I love these dishes. I had bought a "start-up" set at another site where I had seen them initially and had a very difficult time finding them again in order to get enough sets to have a "full party set". Overstock came up on a Google search and even though they were out of stock, I signed up for the alert. When they came in, I was able to complete my service for 10 and at a much lower price per set than the original one I had purchased (from a well known site I might add). I absolutely love them. They are great for every day and are elegant enough for those "fancy" dinner parties or holiday dinners. They are dishwasher safe which is great. Just note that because of the metal imbedded in the pattern you cannot use them in the microwave which I know for some may be inconvenient. If you are looking for white dishes (which the "experts" say help you control food portions by fooling you into believing you're eating more) these are perfect - they cover every occasion & look spectacular.
I wanted new dinner ware that was simple, primarily white and love the pattern of simple red berries on white. Light, great quality. Beautiful. Wash and wear well. No scratches or metal marks as develop on some stoneware. These are porcelain and great for everyday or special occasions. I ordered 2 sets originally, then ordered another set for place settings for 12. I also like the deep bowls and the "real mug" for serving coffee. I wish this pattern offered matching serving pieces, but does not. I found complimentary serving pieces though, plain white or the "red vine" pattern serving pieces by Mikasa.
This charger plate is absolutely beautiful it is exactly as it is describe apart from the silver being a little more like an aluminium silver rather than a metallic silver. Over all great product
