Rated 5 out of 5 by rlrowland from Love my bargain plates! I bought four of these plates (at the bargain price of £6.95 each!) in the post-Christmas sale. I only ever buy EB seconds and despite a couple of these having some relatively noticeable glazing issues, I'm still over the moon with my purchase! I couldn't justify paying full price (didn't really need new plates, I just WANTED them!) but I think I've still got a set of beautiful plates that we've been using daily; they are fantastic quality and I love the polka design - an EB classic. I'd never shy away from buying seconds - you know you might be getting something which is slightly less than 100% perfect, but the flaws are usually barely noticable (if at all).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emms84 from Fantastic Wedding Gift! I was bought the entire Polks Dot plate set as a wedding gift, after making it known just how much and how long I'd wanted them for. My parents bought these for us as their wedding gift and they are just great. Can't tell that they are seconds, and meant that I was able to get the entire dinner service. It's such a treat to finally have these plates! Fantastic workmanship as always - and trying to play 'hunt the imperfection' kept us amused as we genuinely couldn't see what the fault was on each piece. As well as the Mr & Mrs mugs (of which I now have 5 sets!) this was one of my favourite wedding presents - thank you as always Emma B!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clarabella from Wonderful plates I bought these in the sale, so really got these at a bargain price. As with any seconds, it's a bit of a gamble as to what quality you receive. Two of the four plates, I really would've said were perfect. The only noticeable thing being a speckle of black in the glaze. The other two had a couple of noticeable glaze defects, with one spot on the outer rim having no glaze on at all. One plates spots were paler than the others but I think this adds to the charm. Overall these plates are brilliant, and would like to think the differences add to the uniqueness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lola from Who would have thought you could get excited about plates!! I just love my gorgeous polka dot plates! I started my collection at your Christmas sale in Aldborough. Well I say started, I went 3 times in total in just 2 days! I decided I just couldn't wait to build my collection gradually! I wanted a new fresh everyday set of plates, bowls and mugs for my new fresh start and the polka dot set is PERFECT!!! I've now got the tins too and I'm just going spotty mad! Who would have thought you could get excited about plates, but I LOVE using mine, and it complements so well with our other Emma Bridgewater pieces of dancing mice and pink hearts. Excellent service, Excellent products, Thank you so much! Can't wait for my next purchase - quite fancy the polka dot clock!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Salsa from Large plate with plenty of depth for gravy These plates are substantial. They are heavy, with a nice bit of depth for gravy or sauce based dinners such as Coq au Vin. They remind me of the kind of plates and dinners my grandmother used to serve; but with a modern touch and a quirky sense of humour. The quality of the seconds was excellent. One plate had a tiny dot of blue outside of the patterned area that can't be seen without close examination, would be hidden by food, and for those of us who have hit middle age, not to be seen without glasses! The other plate had a small sharp nodule of ceramic on its base (a bit like a piece of grit). This gave me a paper style cut but is now blunt after using a nail file. This might be something for the quality control to watch out for as it could have delivered a nasty cut! Other than this the plate is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NZGirl from I've Said It Before.... and I will say it again. After being so pleased with my first order of 'seconds' I went on to buy six of every plate in the 'seconds'. I can honestly say, that I have no regrets. They are just fabulous. The majority of plates are flawless as far as I can see and those which have teeny tiny pin marks within the pottery are few and far between and I couldn't care less. This was the best value for money. Without a doubt, I will buying more. Just LOVE this range. Thank you for such a fast turn around. I live NZ and it took four working days from ordering to the door.
