Yes I have beautiful china and love using it. However, the only drag is that it is gold edged, so that means handwashing. I have cream colored everyday dishes that can also work on a fancy guest table, so I do alternate. I believe beautiful things are meant to be used rather than gathering dust in my china cabinet. My mom gave me my china, so I think of her each time I set my table.

i have some really great dishes that i only use every once in a while, but no fine china. i bought my every day dishes from a garage sale.

i love the blue willow pattern! also love "eternal". i didn't register for any when we got married but when my mom died her china became mine. it's all still at my dad's. i've really enjoyed using it when i'm down there for Christmas, Easter, new year's eve, and a "just because" dinner or 2. probably because there were so many years when we couldn't use anything fragile because of jen i look forward to setting out the really pretty things now.

None for me. I have like three sets of everyday dishes and that is way too many. I am going to unload at least one set on ebay.

I just gave away our nice sturdy plain white dishes and got Corelle. Sturdy, oven safe, and not plain white. :shrug:

I don't have any. I don't even have a decent set of everyday dishes. :rotfl: I used to, but I'm clumsy and I've broken a lot of it over the years. I plan to buy a nice sturdy plain white dish set at some point.

Yeah, we have a set...but it's nothing sentimental or something I picked out. The hubby actually bought it. It's very simple...white with silver trim...and I don't even know who makes it. :oops: Anyway, it's looking kind of shabby since, I use it as every day wear and put it in the dishwasher.

I once put one of my Stepmother's gold rimmed plates in the microwave. You should have seen the sparks. :rotfl:

That's why gold plating is so handy, if you can get past the fact that it's hideous. No polishing necessary, and no silver metallic taste.

BTW Twink, When I ever get China, I'd want something like the picture you posted above. Silver is a pain in the butt to keep up with.

I have a nice set of everyday dishes that work fine for holidays and company so there's no need for fine China. It would just be collecting dust. I do have some nice silverware that my mother left me but it's never seen the light of day. I'm way too lazy to be polishing silver all the time.

I don't have any. I think it's because for our wedding, I knew we'd move into a small apartment and I knew that I'd never use it. Plus I'd need a China cabinet to store it all. I might consider buying a nice China set for a big anniversary when we're living in my dream home.

Don't have any dishes, but I have some gaudy gold flatware I've never used.
