Bummer

I purchased this set of Limoges dishes off of ebay. I was so excited today when they arrived. But my excitement was short lived when I unwrapped the soup plates. Three of the six were broken beyond repair. The seller informed me that they are willing to compensate me for the damage of the plates. They were packed on the outside of the others and probably were hit or shoved in some way and broke. I received other dishes packed the same way and the same results. 

I will be looking for three replacements if I can find them. I really like these.

This is a wonderful blog - I am loving the music!!

Thanks for the link to my site - by the way!

I collect early french limoge and have bought from ebay many times without incident. I can only imagine how your excited quickly vanished at the sight of those lovely dishes in pieces :(

Glenda,

I heard you "whining" about your lack of visitors over at Cindy's, so thought I would stop by. Feel free to stop by my place sometime.

I am so sorry; that's a bummer; I was just going to suggest looking at Penny@lavender hill studio so you could do something special with your broken pieces, but I noticed she already commented! :) Love your blog music!!

Oh I am sorry you had some breakage...definitely take the seller up on compensation..it's only right. And take Penny's advice and make something fabulous out of it!! LOVED your Erma Bombeck post, I am going to print it out and share.

Thanks for visiting me and for your sweet comment...visit me again sometime.
Blessings,
Robin

Oh, that is a shame, I know you were so disappointed, I know I would have been! But like Penny said, you have a great project in the making!

Thank you so much for your nice words. You have a wonderful blog, I`ll visit you soon. My porcelain, dont really know what it is made of, it`s plain white inside , and yes it looks like mercury glass but still, it isnt. Could not find the english word and now you have helped me, mercury glass it is. In Norway its called "fattigmannssølv", means poor mans silver, hi,hi Hmmm, sad about your new dishes, I have bought some Spode dishes on Ebay, shipped last week from USA, really hope they are in one piece when I recieve them!!!! Take care.
hugs
