How to Purchase Appropriate Crockery Set Online that Works
Crockery refers to dishes, plates, dishes, cups, and other such similar items typically made of china or earthenware. They are now very easy to order online where you can get the best prices as well as access to a wide range of types and designs. Here’s a short guide to purchasing crockery set over the internet.
Choose a Pattern
Perhaps the easiest way to narrow down your choices for buying crockery set is to choose a pattern. Different people have different preferences. Do you lean towards platinum band and gold band patterns? This is a classic look you will be proud to pass down to your children. Are you drawn to traditional whites or solid colours? Are you looking for casual patterns?
Choose a Material
Material is another important factor to consider. Do you require durability? If yes, then narrow your choices down to porcelain and bone china, which are more durable then stoneware and earthenware (contrary to popular belief). Bone china and porcelain are often thought of as being fragile, but they are not. In fact, they’re perfect for regular use.
Choose a Set
Crockery sets are sold as either as place settings or boxed sets.
Place settings - When you buy crockery in sold in individual place settings, you can get all the pieces you might need to arrange a person's seat at the table. Order a 5-place setting and you will typically get:
• a dinner plate
• a salad or dessert plate
• a butter and bread plate
• a teacup
• a saucer
Larger place settings also include soup bowls. Place setting sets are fantastic as gifts for engaged couples as well as for anyone who is building their crockery collection from scratch. If you entertain a lot and have a full sized dining table, go for as set of 12 place settings.
Boxed sets – A good choice some people looking for value, a single set of crockery is typically made up of numerous place settings: The most common are 20- and 16-piece sets (service for four). In a 20-piece set, you will probably get:
• 4 dinner plates
• 4 salad plates
• 4 soup bowls
• 4 teacups
• 4 saucers
If you buy a 16-piece set, you will get 4 mugs instead of 4 teacups and 4 saucers.
Aside from sets, you can also buy individual pieces online. Buying open stock crockery is more practical for people who are looking for variety to their collection.
