Rated 2 out of 5 by nycanthro Wanted to love these but...
I went to my local Anthropologie store, because I thought these plates were really unique and fun. Sadly, I was disappointed to see them up close. From afar they are adorable, but up close, the gold was scratched off (these were the ones in the store, mind you, never having been through a wash!) and the details were askew. The gold rings didn't line up with the illustrations (ie there was either an awkward gap or they overlapped). This didn't seem intentional, and just looked cheap. Maybe I will reconsider if they go on sale, because they are so cute, but for now, not worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maxime I love these plates
These plates are beautiful. I bought 6 when I was at the store and then ordered 4 more online. They come with a tag that says dishwasher and microwave safe which I feel is misleading. When I put one in the microwave, the gold trim sparked. I don't think putting them in the dishwasher is a good idea either as I have heard the gold trim will turn black. Nonetheless, they are worth the inconvenience as they are lovely, whimsical and fun!!!

I purchased the bee patterned plates at the local store and use them with my nantucket basket patterned dinnerware. The table looks so cheery and welcoming. I would suggest you inspect each plate before purchase as there can be some flaws in the paint and finish (hence my quality markdown). I wash them by hand.
