Rated 5 out of 5 by ChunkyMonkey The Best Dishes E-V-E-R!!!
These dishes are AWESOME!!! I was somewhat apprehensive about spending so much $$ on a new set of dishes but these are TOTALLY WORTH the money! Initially, the unusual design caught my eye, and then the fact that they have designs on both front and back was so uncommon, I kept coming back and drooling over them!! The pictures do not do these dishes justice! Not only are the colors very vivid but on the bowls, teacups and large dinner plates, there are raised areas in the shape of anchors!! Too cute for words! The teacups are HUGE!! Like, borderline duo purpose mini soup bowls! I think I will have to start cooking more so we can eat on these dishes every night! I only received these dishes this morning but they seem very high quality, not too heavy and very well made- totally worth the money! They came packed extremely EXTREMELY well, without anything broken. I did notice that on the bottom of one or two plates, where there is that ring of like unfinished, unglazed porcelain (??) it was a tiny bit rough, which isn't that big of a deal to me, but if you're super picky you might want to double check your order.
I purchased enough for four people, and I mixed and matched one of each design of salad plate. I plan on doubling my collection in case of an accident or something.
If you can't already tell, I love these dishes- they are awesome! A very unique addition to any kitchen- I'm even planning on a nautical-octopus theme for the decor now! LOL!!

I am in love with anything with an octapus on it, so having these creatures in vogue is fabulous. the design, especially on the dinner plate, is subtle and intreging. Small details like the embossed anchor just add to the love i have for these plates. I bought four of each of the dinner and salad plates, as well as the cup with saucer to complete my set. I plan to cherish these beautiful pieces because they make me so very happy!
