The China set is both stylish yet functional. It brings class and sophistication to the table and can be used for formal or casual dining, which would make any table setting look fabulous. The gold trim sets off each piece elegantly and tastefully, with the the most notable gold ring on each piece has flowers and scrolling leaves through the gold ring with small gold dots under that ring. The design is not overbearing but done very tastefully. Not only is the set beautiful but very practical, it is also microwave safe and dishwasher safe and it has gold trim on it!
Each piece is very sophisticated and designed well, love the cup handle, it does not have a small hole on the handle and very easy to use for anyone.
The set was shipped in 2 very heavy duty boxes, and the china pieces where carefully and individually wrapped when it arrived.
The set looks just like the pictured on line, you will not be dissatisfied.
Would recommend this china set and pattern to be used for formal occasion and/or for every day use.
Overall the quality and performance of all the pieces of was excellent.
