This set matches all of the other Red Vanilla Olive dishes. Some of the pictures look as if the sets are not the same but I have ordered the dots, strips and solid border patterns and all are the same green. It is a very nice green, closer to lime than olive. Each dish feels solid and has a smooth bottom surface. I truely love this dishes. My husband did not like the feel of the coffee cups as the handle is too small for his hands.
These dishes are spectacular! I bought enough sets for 8 place settings. Everyone comments on them. I wash them in the dishwasher and they come out sparkly and clean. You can also pop them into the microwave, and into the oven. I highly recommend these very fun and practical china sets. Also, they are light-weight, not that heavy stuff, and I banged the large plates several time on the edges. They have not chipped or cracked.
I ought one place setting of these dishes to see if I liked them. One dish broke in half. I don't think there was anything wrong with the dish, maybe they are a little on the fragile side. I used the scrubber side of a sponge to clean the inside of the coffee cup and it left grey streaks on the ceramic. I'm not delicate enough for these dishes even though I like the way they look.
