This is a real heavy weight flatware, which is one of Lenox's most popular patterns. This is the shiny finish and not the frosted pattern. The set includes 4 separate place settings which includes 5 pcs each . All items come with Lenox's lifetime warranty from manufacturing defects, and all pieces are stamped "Lenox 18/10" on the back. All flatware are dishwasher safer so says Lenox, but from my experience I would hand wash them if you want to keep the shine fore ever.
