I have been looking for a set to replace my breakfast set for years. My original set is 47 years old. This set is beautiful, elegant and timeless. The only negative, is the bowls are deeper than my old set & take up more room in the dishwasher. The description states this set should come with mugs, it does not. Which I am ok with, as I prefer plain white mug instead of the matching patterned mugs. Otherwise, I love this set. It also coordinated with the many cobalt blue serving pieces that I have.
