From The Deep Plates
These plates are wonderful! I bought a set of 4 dinner and 4 salad plates to display on the wall - quite the quirky display, but awesome! The soup bowls are always sold out and now not available, but I have had the intention of buying 8 more of each to actually use. I never got around to doing that because they are quite expensive. Well, there was a mishap and one came crashing to the tile floor. You would think the plate would have shattered into a million pieces, but no, only chipped. These are great, sturdy plates! Needless to say, when the incident happened these were out of stock and didn't show they were back-ordered, so my being bummed is an understatement! I was quite upset...but lookie here...they restocked them! Thank you, thank you!! Now maybe I will get a set of 8 of everything for Christmas! Anthro, please make sure there are plenty for the holidays! And, bowls, too, please! :)
Coastal Carolina Classic
On 1 May 2014, we ( the Leland Ladies for Legislative Leadership) had an event "Mais Qui Tea by the Sea." This dinnerware, coastal in design, was a wonderful addition to our May Day, pre-Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo celebrations. We were complimented on the beauty on the designs in fact, some of the saucers were purposely placed upside down with graphics showing through clear floral Eiffel Towers. Must order more for our next event. Awesome! Work well with shrimp salad, cucumber tea and Azaleas!
20,000 Leagues of Love!
I saw these plates in Anthropologie quite a while ago and immediately fell in love with them. Not only do I love anything octopus, but these were so tastefully done and beautiful. The price scared me off the plates for a long time (though it's not bad for high quality dishes), but I am now buying my first house and I bought these for myself as a house-warming present. I do not regret it at all. I bought four of these 10.5" dinner plates, eight of the 8" octopus salad plates and four of the cup/saucer combos. The dishes arrived packaged extremely well and they look amazing. They seem to be sturdy and well made. I plan to use these as my formal place settings (not for everyday use, but may keep them out on display). I may buy more in the future!
