I was looking for some plain white dinnerware and found these at Overstock. They are stoneware, so they have some weight to them, which is great for every day use. Love the shape and size of the coffee cups, and because they're white, I can add some colorful serving pieces to them. One of the cups was damaged when the box arrived, and Overstock made arrangements to get another set out to us right away. We were moving, and it was important that we receive the new set before we left. The box arrived in two days, and they made arrangements for UPS to pick up the old set with no effort on our end. Excellent customer service experience.
I collect teapots and am always on the lookout for something different. This pottery turtle is as cute as it is in the picture. It is not large, but enough to brew a mug and a half of tea. It looks handmade and has a good heft. The handle is sturdy. The only thing is that, because it is from Asia, I am unsure whether it has passed saftey standards with regard to lead in the clay or stain, which is always a concern about any imported pottery item that may be used for food. Perhaps "O" can clarify this for all of us, because this turtle is darn cute! My grandkids will love to have their tea in it...once I find out about its safety.
