I like the look of this particular plate, and I've bought extras to go with my original set. A problem with all of them, however, is that although the white part is great -- smooth, even, generally appealing -- the colorful part on the outer edge is semi-rough. It's not a subtle thing. Take a spoon or fork and rub it across the periphery of the plate or bowl, and you'll instantly see what I mean. For me that part of it is like fingernails on a chalk board -- really offputting. I gave away everything except the mugs and large plates. It's the looks of this collection that I really like, but the manufacturer seems to have colored the edges with ground glass, and that's not a trivial design flaw. If you don't love the look of it as much as I do, don't get it.
