These bowls are very attractive, heavy like I wanted and will look fabulous on the table. They are not white but rather a toss up between a light beige and gray. I am very pleased with this purchase.
These are big over-sized bowls. If you love eating a huge bowl of pasta or soup or ANYTHING, these bowls can handle the challenge. The bowls are called "rice" because there is a rice pattern, so if that is a turn off then I'd skip this. BUT it is so tastefully done that it's almost overlooked, but adds a nice little element than plain white bowls. I almost bought bowls that cost twice as much as these and I'm so glad that I didn't and decided to look on Overstock. Dishwasher and microwave safe was also necessary. Also there is some heft to them; not saying you'll get a workout carrying them, but this is not flimsy and fragile by any means.
