But this will work for what I want.

12 place settings plus various other pieces. Noritake Bessie 5788

I feel I got the set at a decent price.

I am just excited I finally have a full set of China.

They didn't all quite fit in the Miele.

Now I just need to make sure I have enough twin star to go with this set!

I'm happy for you - these will look great at any table. I like many Noritake designs and the quality is there in all the pieces.

I saw the listing in facebook market place. I messaged the guy saying that I was interested, but would take me a while to make a decision. I noticed the next week he dropped the price by a third so I said I'd pick them up asap.

Come to find out they were listed by a customer's grandson. She sold the set because they are moving/downsizing. They are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this weekend and have had the set since they were married.

Not a single piece is chipped or discolored. After I washed them, they all look brand new. I can't even see any knife marks on the plates.

This large of a set is almost overwhelming, but I love the simple design. For the price, I couldn't say no.

Thank you for the compliments!

That's a very nice set of china. Even if you coaxed all the hand-painted periwinkles on to one plate the food won't taste any different. Congrats...the Holiday's are coming.
