I read the reviews and since it took me years to find a pattern I liked, I ignored the negatives and ordered these dishes anyway. The pattern is beautiful and I liked the idea of them being hand crafted/individually unique. The quality isn't bad, but not great either. The grapes look nice but the green edges were not done by a quality process, ironic given each one has an "inspected" sticker on it. Paint obviously missing throughout the otherwise solid line/rim in spots. Not hugely noticeable but certainly there. I expected more consistency in the quality of the paint job for the money I paid. I really wanted to like these dishes and on the surface, they're not bad. My suggestion to you is if you are a high quality-focused person, don't order these, you will be disappointed. If you don't mind some flaws and inconsistencies and just love the pattern, then these will do just fine. Although I just received these, I am a bit concerned over whether they will chip over time.
