I Like these mugs because they are large but solid, easy to hold and well made. Actually the whole Tunisian sunset collection is wonderful. I am VERY particular about dishes so I had spent hour combing the internet for dishes that would be the right size to fit in my cabinet. (The cabinet depth was only 12 inches so often dinner plates are too big and then the door will not close completely) I was also looking for plates that were colorful but not all the same. These dishes were all of that and more. They were not too heavy like some and being dishwasher and microwave safe were ideal. But what I was most happy with was the finish on the plate. Many plates can be "gritty" feeling, as if they were not glazed enough. These were smooth and not cheap feeling. They are so pretty and mix so well with all of the other pieces in the collection without being matchy matchy!!
I have been collecting this set of dinnerware from Overstock.com as money allows and was dismayed when I found they did not carry any of the mugs. I contacted Customer Care and asked if there was any chance that would be able to stock these in the future. Lo and behold not more than two weeks later the mugs were offered on the site. My inquiry probably had nothing to do with this, but the timing was quite coincidental. :-) No matter how Overstock acquired more of these I was ecstatic! Love this set and add to it when I can.
These mugs are HUGE. We use them for coffee occasionally, since we have a collection of other mugs. These are great for ice cream! A tall cup of coffee. The style is really pretty, and we have the dishes that match.
These mugs are a bit larger than your average size and work well under a single cup brewer. They are a conversation piece as well and are not too heavy--works well with other pieces in the collection. I had a problem with one cup as the color stained through the inside and there was a minor chip in shipping. Overstock immediately made it right and within 10 days had another cup shipped to me. They contacted their supplier and kept in touch with me untill the issue was resolved. Overstock has extraordinary cutomer service which takes the fear out of shopping..
