Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

Q: How do you grade your pieces for quality?
A: Please scroll all the way down to the bottom of any of our pages for information on how we grade our pieces for quality.

Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: Yes, we are happy to ship internationally. Please contact us with a list of specific items and we will provide you with a shipping quote.Any duties and fees incurred once the package reaches your country are your responsibility.

Q: How can I view the status of my order?
A: Go to the Customer Service, Account Information page. This page lists all your orders. Click the date of the order whose status you wish to view.

Q: How do you calculate shipping?
A: Shipping is free for all orders to the United States and its possessions and territories. Buy 5 or more pieces and receive an automatic 25% discount. In most cases, we will use either FedEx Ground/Home Delivery or USPS Priority Mail. In most cases, orders to Alaska, Hawaii and US possessions and territories will be shipped by USPS Parcel Post, which could take 8 to 12 post office delivery days. In all cases, please contact us if you would like expedited shipping.

Q: How soon will my order be processed?
A: Within 1 to 2 business days. We ship Monday through Friday.

Q: Dinnerware is delicate. How well do you pack?
A: We wrap each piece in packing paper and then separate similar pieces (like a group of dinner plates) with padding, such as thin foam or corrugated paper. We then wrap the piece or group in bubble wrap. Everything then goes in to a corrugated cardboard box with packing peanuts filling in the gaps.

Q: You don't carry my pattern, but I'd really appreciate it if you would contact me when you do get some. Will you do that?
A: Yes! Drop us an email at wishlist@dinnerwarerescue.com and send us the manufacturer and pattern name, and any specific pieces you are looking for. We will contact you as soon as we are able to locate pieces of your pattern.

Q: How do you remove those gray utensil marks that show up on plates?
A: We use a product called Bar Keeper's Friend. It is found in the cleaning products section of hardware stores or large grocery stores.

Q: What is "crazing"?
A: Crazing lines look like fine cracks but are only in the glaze, and do not go through the entire piece. Crazing can occur during the manufacturing process, when the ceramic and the glaze do not contract to the same degree, causing these thin cracks. Crazing can also occur with time and use, maybe from excessive heat or moisture getting under the glaze.

Q: Are your pieces new?
A: No, in most cases they are not. We get our stock from a variety of sources, such as thrift stores, Craig's List, estate sales, and so on. We do have some new pieces, and they are designated as such.

Q: What can I do with the packing peanuts that were used for my order?
A: List them on Craig's List or even sell them at a garage sale. Peanuts and other packing material, like bubble wrap, can be expensive, so online sellers are always on the lookout for less expensive sources. If you choose to throw them away, be sure to bag them up first so they won't fly all over your neighborhood on garbage collection day.

How Do We Grade Our Dinnerware For Quality?

We examine each piece of dinnerware we sell and then classify our products into the following categories:

New: Exactly that! Acquired from a manufacturer's distributor. May be in an original box or have manufacturers' stickers. If not, it is because the pieces originally came in a bundle and we decided to sell them individually.

Very Good: Very little or no sign of use.

Good: May have colorless utensil marks, light scratches in the pattern, a few faint gray utensil marks, or minimal rim wear.

Fair: May have some wear to the rim or pattern, many colorless scratches or wear, and/or moderate gray utensil marks.

Backup: Your "B Team". May have crazing, or glaze or pattern imperfections. Sometimes we find perfectly good pieces that have a small chip out of the foot or on the underside of the rim. We think these are okay, since the chip is either not visible or hardly so when the piece is sitting on the table. Pieces with chips will be identified, with location of chip. We do not sell pieces with cracks.

What about the undersides? Because the majority of our pieces are used, they pick up marks on the bottom from previous storage. We do clean each piece as part of the quality grading process, but discoloration to an unglazed foot may still be present.

What constitutes Good or Fair, for instance, is completely subjective. If you would like more information about a particular piece, please email us.
