These lovely dishes are very unique. Each has a different butterfly with its name on the underside of the plate. Goes thru the dishwasher nicely. Seems to be sturdy but has the look of fragile china. Bumped one on my granite counter and expected it to shatter but it didn't even chip! Have not yet frozen them but have warmed them in the oven without incident. Would love them even more if this set came with bowls.
