I have purchased this pottery at a local store. It's great to use for cooking. Has anyone else ever used it? Is it as durable as they say it is? I am new to this so any information will be appreciated!

Chambrea,

We use the stuff every day and on special occasions everything comes out (gravy boats, mugs, platters, etc). We would like to have more but there's no more room in the cabinets. Sometimes I think that I need to put a few more mounting screws into the cabinets to hold them (those dishes are heavy). I microwave, bake and serve in them all the time. We even keep butter in our refrigerator in a small oval dish for everyday use.

Here is what we have... BLOG BLOG BLOG: Time To Eat!

Enjoy them,

Dennis

I have a few pieces that I purchased at Home Goods of all places - the markings on the back say BOLSLAWIEC Hand made in Poland.
Isn't there a store in NEPA that specializes in this stuff? I love it too! I agree its pretty and durable.

Hi Roxy,
I also bought some of the QVC pottery in Exeter, at European Treasures. Their phone is 570-709-9102. If I remember right they are open Thursday-Sunday. From what I understand it's the same pottery that Holly Ross carries. I do like it better since it isn't as heavy as the other pottery that is out there. It's amazing how much lighter it is. I love the bakers and bowls I bought. I am hooked. It's all I use now!

I loved Holley Ross. They had beautiful Polish pottery but it was too expensive for me to use everyday. I bought their own pottery and added a different color to my new set of dishes. The prices were pretty good. I am going to check out European Treasures next. Thanks for the info.
