Rated 3 out of 5 by CountryFrenchGal A Few Tweaks Would Make Them Perfect
Cute, dainty mugs, but they're not perfect.
Pros: (1) The color is a sophisticated gray-blue, not as bright as in the photos
(2) I bought them for everyday use and they're holding up nicely, so far.
Cons: (1) The mugs are kind of small. I consider them more of a teacup than a mug
(2) Two of the mugs have flecks of brown paint that add visual definition to the embossed roosters and the handles. Sadly, the other two mugs do not feature the brown accents, and therefore, they're not as nice-looking.
(3) There are a few tiny spots where the paint and/or glaze doesn't entirely cover the mugs. Three of them have this problem on the inside, which makes me concerned that drinks like tea or coffee may eventually seep under the glazing.
Overall, I'm ecstatic about Kirkland's low prices! This blue rooster dinnerware is sold as sets elsewhere, but for WAAAY higher prices! Finding the pieces here at these prices was a blessing!
