My favorite dishes
C J from Richmond
I have to counter the previous review--I have a full set of these dishes and I would definitely not describe them as powder blue which I think of as sort of a pale dusty color. They are indeed turquoise--maybe not quite as Miami-bright as in the picture, but a creamier, mellower turquoise in the 50s style. I love it. I use them all the time.
color a bit disappointing

These are pretty dishes but not quite the color shown in the photo. Mine are a more of a powder blue than the rich turquoise shown in the photo . . . . I had really hoped for a closer match in color . . . I'd suggest that if color is important to you, you may want to either try to see them in person or - if that's impractical - just order one piece as a sample so that you can see what the color really is before deciding whether you want to purchase more.
