Rated 5 out of 5Â by PJWahine 20,000 Leagues Purchase
I don't have a thing in my house that is nautically themed but when I saw these dishes, I was intriqued. So, I purchased a set and I have to say that I am thrilled with the dishes. When purchasing, though, keep in mind that the "tea cup and saucer" are soup bowl size. I do love the design - what fun conversation pieces for a table...

As an avid admirer of all things nautical, I was really drawn to this set. The octopus is really striking, and not silly or scary as most octopus depictions tend to be. The tea cup is quite larger than it appears in the photos, and is not dainty. You could use it for soup if so inclined. These are heavy pieces, not cheap, and very attractive. I really love them. I did not purchase the soup bowl because I thought the design was at odds with the rest of the set, aesthetically it did not go well in my opinion.

Sometime animal-themed things can look a little young for my taste, but the dark blue really helps these. I bought them and I'm going back for the dinner plates. Also, they are very sturdy and wash easily--a sign of good-quality glaze. So glad I got them!
