Laurie Gates Alessia 16-piece Ceramic Dinnerware Set
In love with my set!!
I ordered the green set and I am absolutely satisfied and in love with my set even after having it in my kitchen for more than 3 weeks. I love the details and find the textured solid pieces are one of a kind. I seriously have not seen any other dinnerware with such defined details on a solid piece. The painting enhances the details. Aside from being so pretty, the plates have been great for my everyday use since I am able to dishwash them and reheat leftovers in them.
So Bright and Happy!
Ordered this set in the green a few weeks ago. Just love how these dishes have added just the right amount of color and brightness to our kitchen. These dishes make whatever you present on them look spectacular. Love the size of the bowls and the salad plates. I'm so glad I ordered these.
This would be my second set of dinnerware from Laurie Gates. My first set was purchased about 7-8 years ago. We used our previous set as formal dinnerware and we received many great compliments from our guests. They are very easy to clean and durable. The quality is excellent and the pattern is just beautiful. So when we decided to get another set of dinnerware, we once again decided to go with Laurie Gates. I google Laurie Gates, and was lucky enough to find it on QVC. I ordered the purple dinnerware set and it is absolutely beautiful. The colors are bright and vivid, and the details added to the flowers makes it very elegant when set on the table. The purple on the dinner plate and cereal bowl match very well with the decorated florals on the salad and mug. This is a lovely set that I will definitely be using for a long time.
I was so amazed when I opened my dinnerware and saw the beautiful purple dinnerware. The pattern plates and cups are perfect when paired with the solid purple pieces. They appear very well made. I am so happy that we took a chance on this item.
love these dishes !!!!!
i received these a week ago and have used them ever since. all my friends love them. the colors are great. they are just beautiful. i waited a long time to find the right dishes and i found laurie gates and will never do anything else.
I've purchased the purple set dinnerware from QVC and received it just in time for our 4th of July gathering. The set arrived in perfect condition, couldn't ask for more. I love the decorated salad and mug against the solid color dinner and cereal. The pattern and colors were beautifully executed. We've used it during our gathering and everyone just love it. I would definitely recommend this set to my friends and family.
A Fan for Life
This is the first time I purchased dinnerware Laurie Gates Dinnerware on QVC and I could not be happier. The style and design as well as the quality exceeded my expectations! The rich colors and detail work make for a beautiful table and create a great conversation. I recommend the dinnerware by Laurie Gates very highly and can see how they would be perfect as gifts in the future. Very Happy!!!
Nice dinner set
I bought this set because we are downsizing our dinnerware serving size and I loved the pretty colors and square plates. I did receive one bowl with a chip, but contacted customer service and they replaced it with no problems............love the dishes and the customer service. A four star rating because one was damaged otherwise a "5".
Very poorly made!!!
When I saw the presentation for this set, I was so excited. The design was so beautiful, and I loved the shape of the plates and that the mugs were a generous 16 ounces. I was really psyched to receive my dishes, but sadly, was VERY disappointed when I opened them. Several of the pieces were chipped, and most of them had pitted spots that were not thoroughly glazed. The bottom also left a white ceramic dust on my hand. Some of the plates were not level and wobbled on the table. Such a shame, since the design is really beautiful. These would have been magnificent if they were made better. Back to the drawing board with this one!
Great Value + Beautiful
I'm surprised with the reviews listed - especially since I received 2 green from my mother. She purchased these items for me as a house warming present and I couldn't be any happier with her choice even though they were not on my registry. The colors, flowers, and details are so beautiful - extremely beautiful. I love that they are hand painted because the details they color seems so much livelier than your normal dinnerware that seems to have been decorated with a sticker. The solid color pieces have a great design so they're not your boring solid color pieces.
As far as durability goes, I have used them all (service for 8) to entertain my visitors more than 9 times within the week that I received them - including the first day she gave them to me. My mother and relatives came to visit from the east coast for my house warming and I used the sets with no problems.
I bought this set in purple,the box they came in was very secure. The colors are so vibrant and make my table look stunning. I am very pleased with the dishes and have had no problems with putting them in the dishwasher. Thinking of going back for a second set.
I read all the reviews before receiving my two sets. I have the boxes and I could return them. As others said, there are a few spots where the paint is chipped and there are spots on the salad plates where it looks like dirt. The plates are also very heavy and my husband hates that. I did not get the melamine plate setting because it could not be used in the microwave. Supposedly these can be. Even with the flaws I would recommend these plates because they are so pretty. They are very bright and cheerful. I think that means a lot. Also, I think the price is perfect for this set. I have not seen anything comparable in the stores. The easy pay option made it especially affordable for me and I appreciate that as a senior citizen.
