Apilco Tradition Blue-Banded Porcelain Dinnerware Place Settings

Embellished with classic blue fillets, this white porcelain dinnerware is suitable for everyday dining as well as entertaining. It's produced by Apilco, a French company that has supplied restaurant-quality porcelain to culinary professionals since 1906. As with all of Apilco's signature white dinnerware, these restaurant-quality pieces can be dressed up or down - pair them with various styles of linens, flatware and glassware for a stunning presentation. Made of high-fired porcelain. Microwavable; freezer, oven and dishwasher safe. 5-piece place setting includes a dinner plate, salad plate, soup bowl, cup and saucer. The 20-piece set consists of four 5-piece place settings. Individual pieces available in sets of four. Made in France.

Everyday beautiful
June 9, 2016
Recommend: Yes
We registered for these dishes 9 years ago when we got married. Rather than registering for fancy "special occasion dishes" that we would never use we opted to get these which are nice enough for special occasions and durable enough for every day use. You can dress them up or dress them down. They still look just as beautiful as the day we got them. I feel the price is right for true timeless, quality dishes that we plan to use for the rest of our lives (made in France) not cheap junk that's meant to be thrown away when some new trend comes along.
Picking up a few more sets as we have a new addition to the family and one or two have broken over the years (after falling hard onto porcelain tile). I hope WS never stops carrying these.

Husband and Wife Equally Adore These Dishes
May 23, 2016
Recommend: Yes
We registered for these dishes for our wedding because my husband was bored by the sea of plain white dishes available. These dishes strike the right balance between classy, homey, and beautiful. They go with everything. We previously used a set of Fiestaware and these are clearly a step up. We always get compliments on them and it is a pleasure to use them, even 1.5 years after our wedding date. The price is right for the quality you get. We also paired the set with white serving platters, and the contrast keeps the table interesting and not uniformly boring. Tip: they are more beautiful in person than you can tell from the online images.

very expensive dishes
August 30, 2015
Recommend: Yes
these were a house warming gift for my son who already owns this set. he enjoys them every day but needed a larger service. nice well made set. arrived on time and intact however the price is a deal breaker for me. they are very plain, not in the elegant way. more like the auto-mat or diner way. he is happy so i am happy but the price for these very plain dishes is exhorbidant.
Pros: Durable
Cons: price

Beautiful Dishes
January 6, 2014
Recommend: Yes
I received these for my wedding and I absolutely love them. They are extremely durable and can easily be made casual or more formal. My only complaint is that they don't always clean well - however it's very likely that the issue is with my compact dishwasher and not a problem with the dishes themselves.

I still love these dishes
December 2, 2012
Recommend: Yes
I treated myself to this dinnerware 8 years ago using an award check from work. I still love my dishes and now want to get the bread & butter plates. I use this dinnerware every day; it still looks beautiful. The weight of the dinnerware is just right, substantial but not too heavy. This Thanksgiving we decided to use this dinnerware rather than the "good china" so that we could use the dishwasher and enjoy our time with family; the dinner table was lovely. Both of my kids like this dinnerware so much that some day they may be bargaining over who gets the dishes!
