Rated 5 out of 5 by gmeroe so pretty
the yellow hummingbird plate was a gift for my grandmother and she loved it. It is vivid yellow and there is a shiny gold line around the edge of the center of the plate that is hard to see in the photo, but makes it even more impressive in person. There was a sticker on the back of the plate I received that said microwave and dishwasher safe, but I wouldn't trust that. My grandma hand washes her dishes anyway, so she won't be finding out.

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!!!

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.
