Apparently I lied when I said I don't usually like mixed metals, because the ones I've found are lovely. I love that they would match my great-grandmother's china, which is the Homer-Laughlin Lady Greenbriar pattern with yellow roses. I would always want a service for 12, preferably for 13 so that if some pieces got lost or something, I'd still have a full set.
