Delightful. A pleasure to hold in my hands.
I purchased this coffee mug to add to my existing set of Lenox Laurent (which was discontinued back in the 1980s). That set did not have coffee mugs in it (by original design). The Autumn mug matches perfectly! Same ivory color, beautiful gold accents, intricate print, muted colors. Even the bumpy texture of the yellow, orange, and blue fruit in the ornamental strip--all just absolutely wonderful. One observation. My Laurent china is "see-through". Literally. When I pick up those dishes, I can see light through them. Autumn china, on the other hand, is a tad bit heavier and thicker. I can't see through these mugs. Still very fancy, albeit on a tad bit heavier side. I'm looking forward to enjoying these bowls for years to come. P.S. For those who are into color matching and since the website pictures don't convey the color very well. When I look at the painted strip in the daylight, the colors in it are "muted" tones of gray. Even the blacks are muted. They are not white-washed hues nor are they black-infused shades. No, these colors are all tones of gray. So, if your table design is in the earthy, "dirty", muted gray pattern, these dishes will be a perfect match, despite the fact that they are accented with gold and not platinum or silver. Just beautiful.
