I purchased this along with the matching sugar bowl when they were on special offer, so the price was great. I already have the teapot and small mugs, so this completed my teaset. I love the natural pearl collection, the colour lovely and subtle with a nice sheen, no fussy design, something I will be unlikely to get fed up with. I would like to have a complete collection including the dinner service, but see the line is being discontinued which is shame, so I had better hurry up and buy the rest of the pieces before they disappear. I think the quality is what I would expect from Denby and I am getting plenty of use from the items I have. I would recommend this collection to anyone looking for quality pieces, subtle in colour and a change from white.
