Brown Twill Round Plate Storage Cases
Great...Will Fit Larger Plates than Described
I recently ordered this set to store my fine china place settings (dinner plate, salad plate, bread and butter plate, saucer). They work perfectly. I almost didn't order because it says the smallest container will only hold plates up to 5 1/2" in diameter. I took a chance and ordered them anyway, and I'm glad I did. My saucers are 6" in diameter and they fit perfectly in the smallest container. I had to use the container the next size up for my bread and butter plates which are also 6", so there is quite a bit of extra room in that container which is not incredibly desirable. Overall, I'm still pleased with this storage solution. I did purchase the Hagerty china separators as other suggested (they are sized more appropriately and are a MUCH softer material). I actually ended up using them as well as the separators that came with the set. I used the Hagerty ones on top of each plate and then layered the separators provided with the set on top of that. The ones provided are a thicker material so they provided a little extra cushioning that I appreciated.

Nice sturdy containers. They have labels and felt pads; the felt pads like other reviewers stated are one size but there were so many provided I was able to use two pads for each dinner plate and still have plenty. I had to order another set for my regular bowls and cream soup bowls. It would be nice for an individual option not just set.

Old China Protector
These strong containers will go a long way in protecting 100+year old china service.

Really very good -- only two caveats
As others have said, these are extremely good storage containers for dishes. I'm very glad I bought them, replacing old ones that were not as sturdy or protective.
But as others have said, the dividers that come with them are not great -- all one size, and too large for the smaller items. I strongly suggest buying the Hagerty fine china separators instead (http://www.containerstore.com/shop/kitchen/dinnerwareServingStorage?productId=10026198).
Also, it would be great if the Container Store would sell the four sizes separately (even if only online) -- I need one more of the smallest size, but am not about to buy the whole second set just for that...
