        I waited a long time for these plates. I wasn't sure I wanted to spend that much money on 2 plates, but I just love the look and the practicality of them.

        Comments about BUDDHA BELLY PLATE:

        Great conceptual idea, but it's heavy and doesn't feel comfortable holding it to eat as an individual dinner plate. I use it now as a serving plate.

                  I bought the buddha belly plates to use in a picnic basket. We have 4 of them and they are great for outdoor events. Not any heavier than other ceramic plates.

                  These plates are stylish and practical! We love to eat and watch TV and they are perfect for us! Not only that but we have guests and they are stylish enough to become fun topics of conversation... everyone loves them. They are a lil heavier then expected... so they kids do not like them and they are 11 and 13.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  It was on time and packaged well... I was worried about them breaking in shipping but there was no way with all the packaging!! I was very impressed!
