Just want opinions. At 63 I probably don't know the "style"! LOL Don't know how to post a link. Someone please do that for me! Thanks! I know I'll get criticized for needing others opinions, but, oh well. I can buy 13 place settings plus bowls and a platter for $225 as I have mentioned before.

I like it, but I'm 48! For $225, I'd use it for every day.

I don't understand. You got tons of input on your last thread. Plenty of people encouraged the purchase, others said no and said why. What more do you seek with this particular thread?

Here's Replacements site with that pattern. You can replace pieces very easily. Just subscribe to their service (it's free) and they will keep you informed as to what comes in, in that pattern.

Personally, I've never been a big fan of the vast majority of Noritake's floral patterns.

However, back when I worked in a China store, Noritake always sold very well. So plenty of other people think it's very lovely.

If you like it, then go for it.

This is standard operating procedure for OP.

She had posted at least a half dozen threads about how to deal with tear stains her maltese has. Then she admits that the dog has blocked tear ducts and rubs her face in the carpet (do you think it might be because the dog is uncomfortable?).

She doesn't follow any advice that she asks for and then becomes indignant when called out for it

Yes it is 'pretty' but not my style especially for everyday use. That said however, if you like it buy it.

She has the money to get her dog the surgery she needs, I just don't understand why she won't do it. There's a chance it will help her.

I actually have this pattern and I really like it. It's actually prettier in person. I don't use it for everyday.
I didn't go with expensive china because I will inherit china from my mom and my mother in law.

Jillsie Pea, you don't know what you are talking about! The surgeon said the surgery had a poor change of being successful on my Sophie. It is a very involved surgery starting in the mouth and going to the duct, and he, nor I though it was a good idea to put her though that hard surgery. Please back off. Anyway, Jesus loves you and has a plan for your life! Don't miss it!

You never told us how complicated this surgery is, not once on the threads that I have read. Perhaps letting us know this would have changed opinions on your excessive posting asking the same question over and over again.

Child of grace, "pretty" is subjective. We cannot tell you that. We told you in one thread it was a good value, and in another that we use our china.

That china is not my taste. I think it looks like something a granny would like. But I am not the one picking. If you like it, buy it. I am not sure why so many of your choices require group validation from the peas.

I had a yorkie who had tear duct surgery. I took her to a dog opthomologist at The University of Pennsylvania. It is not an uncommon condition in small breed dogs. The surgery was a success. Maybe you should seek out a second opinion from an expert in your area.

Why are you buying them? Because YOU like them or because they are a style that OTHER people like?

I think that your better choice would be to ask your DH and family/friends that might be invited to eat on this china what they think of them if that really matters to you.

And not that it matters one little bit, but I don't like the design at all. But that's only because I don't like dainty floral patterns.

If your concern is wondering if your children and grandchildren will enjoy it when they come for family gatherings, the answer is probably "no".

Most people now seem to be gravitating towards cleaner, more contemporary lines.

I don't like it but I am another who doesn't care for dainty floral patterns. But, if you saw the pattern on your other thread that I have, I suspect there are plenty of people who would think it was way too bold. LOL My china was a gift from my grandmother. It was a wedding gift to her. I love the pattern but it took some time to grow on me. Bottom line, if you like the pattern, that really is all that matters. Buy something you like and that you want to look at. Mine is displayed on an antique piece of furniture I have as well as displayed in my china cabinet. I have a few other partial sets of china. One that is a Lenox pattern that I would love to replace all the missing pieces. My paternal grandparents used it as their everyday dishes so many pieces were broken over the years.

My opinion? If you loved it you would know. Maybe you aren't quite loving
it like you should and are trying to justify the purchase. I suppose it's a good
deal for someone who LOVES that particular pattern.

Does the look fit in with your decor? I feel like it goes with a Shabby Chic decor
or a delicate romantic look. Maybe even a soft country look? If this is how
you like to decorate your home, then you will be happy with it.

What do your other dishes look like? Serving pieces? You don't want to have to
replace everything in order for that china to look good in your home. Then its not
such a great deal after all.

Also, that is a pattern that my dh would not feel comfortable eating on. It's too
feminine. I think it's very cute for a girl's tea or a bridal/baby shower where the
guests are all female.

Let us know what you decide.

I didn't like the pattern TheBiscuitScraps posted, but I googled it and it appears that link shows a different pattern. The actual pattern I like a lot - I like china that appears frilly and dainty. The more old-fashioned, the better, at least for me.

My DH doesn't even notice what dishes look like unless I have bought new ones, in which case he rolls his eyes and says my God, my God, what was wrong with the old ones? So mostly I pick what I like and he eats off it, the end.


You never told us how complicated this surgery is, not once on the threads that I have read.


For what it's worth, I distinctly remember reading about how the surgery was perhaps less than optimal for a small dog, that it may or may not be successful, and that the surgeon wasn't sold on it being the right solution for her dog.

I don't invest a lot in threads like this, but that is something I do distinctly remember, for some reason - a conversation about that dog and its tear ducts.

Sorry about the Noritake Enchantment link. There are two Noritake Enchantment patterns. One is "Enchantment", the one I provided a link for at Replacements.

The other is Noritake LEGENDARY Enchantment 4035
