Rated 4 out of 5Â by Hale These little plates are very charming. I got these in LIME & DARK BLUE. My only disappointment is that I expected the yellow-green to be more of an acid yellow as it appears on my monitor. It is, in actuality, the color of the lighter shade of green in the GREEN plate (olive green). Every other color in each plate is exactly as it appears on my monitor. The blue is a deep cobalt and the orange is a bright orange/red. The profile is low and the size is about the same as a tea saucer which is exactly what I expected. Overall, I think they're nice and will be good for holding a candle or using as a coaster, but expect some imperfections (small smudges, a few bubbles) in the painted design. If you're super-particular and can't get to an Anthro to pick out your plates in person, you may want to skip these. If I had seen these in-store, I doubt I'd have left with the LIME plate, but I am considering ordering the PLUM unseen.
