tl/dr: Moss plates are dingier than they appear, and white plates are not crackled.
Originally I ordered these side plates in the pretty moss color because I loved the blue-green edge and the crackle glaze. When I received the product, I was disappointed by how yellow the body of the plates looked. It is much darker and dingier than the photo suggests. Although the blue and green colors and the crackle glaze are beautiful, they didn't match my other off-white dishes as I had hoped.
I exchanged the moss plates for the white, because I thought that even if I couldn't have the beautiful color, at least I will get the interesting crackle texture that drew my eye. I was apprehensive about the white plates, because I couldn't tell if they had the crackle effect or not based on the product images online. My suspicions were correct, and the white plates do not have any crackle effect but were instead a plain white glaze.
Also, keep in mind that the moss plates are in demand, and they were shipped over 4 shipments for just eight plates. They even went on back order midway through the shipping process, so I only received 7. The eighth moss plate is FINALLY arriving a month later, even after I exchanged and ordered the white plates and asked for the remaining shipment to be cancelled. Anthro, get your inventory tracking system together.

I adore the Old Havana Dinnerware in Mint! I've received multiple pieces from my wedding registry. The design and color are very similar to the photo shown here online. This dinnerware is a great combination of formal/causal. Some variation in color, but still looks great!

Even more beautiful in real life than in photo. I have to admit I love Portuguese pottery. Gave this as a gift (on friend's wedding registry) and was tempted to keep it.
