I have owned my Noritake dinnerware for 6 years. I love it and it has held up very well. My children are grown and our family has increased in size with the addition of spouses and grandchildren. I needed more place settings and was happy to learn that my pattern is still available. Ordering additional pieces was easy. Service was excellent and I received new pieces quickly. Noritake dinnerware is one of the best investments I have made!
