I have had a set of Italian Countryside I purchased at Mikasa before Macy's even started carrying them. We used them as "good" dishes for several years and moved them to "everyday" usage a few years ago. Yes, I've had to replace a few pieces from Macy's over the years because as with most dishes they do break with misusage. They get washed in the dishwasher daily and we have no problem whatsoever with them. The dishes are elegant enough for special occasions but simple enough for every day. I just hope Macy's never stops carrying the pieces as it's good to know that when a piece breaks, it's not a catastrophe.
I am pleased with my replacement.. Mikasa keep up the production line!!
Elegant! Great for formal dinner. Nice size and I love the cream color.
We bought this set a couple of years ago and use it everyday. No problems. In response to some reviewers, all china is fragile and can break. Luckily, you can replace pieces from Mikasa if you wish. To Erin, a standard cup of coffee in a fine restaurant is 6 oz., and these are just that. Not a mug. And the soup bowls hold a standard serving of soup. If you need more, ladle it out. We also use this beautiful set for every holiday and dress it up with appropriate color napkins, candles and flowers to set a festive table. Dinner anyone?
I have not had the same experience as Erin. We use the entire place setting at special occasion meals and use fiestaware for everyday. Two soup ladles fit in the soup bowl. Easy to cleanup too since they are dishwasher safe. The look is casually elegant. The pattern is unobtrusive. We use the coffee cups too. Maybe Mikasa thought mugs are too casual, but that's what most people use for coffee today. We bought a second service for larger parties and love the practical but slightly fancy look .
Worried it wouldm't match my old plates, BUT it was almost identical in color ☺☺!
I'm hosting Eater brunch. Walking into the dining room carrying a mug of coffee to a guest and... BAM... the handle snaps off! The mug full of coffee falls to the floor and hot coffee splashes all over my guests! This was not the first mug that the handle snapped off if. For others over the past 6 months or so. They seem to get brittle over time and fail.
Lovely set. Not very practical. Coffee cups are more the size of tea cups for tea time that come with saucers. Soup bowls aren’t useful unless you’re eating about 2 tablespoons of soup at a time. We are really only able to use the dinner plates and salad plates.
