So how long will a porcelain dinnerware set last?

I’m thinking about investing in Pillivuyt dinnerware.

I love beautiful things, and things that last. I also love to use my beautiful things, and unlike my mother-in-law (only using her China at Christmas, not scraping the plates, or stacking them, and hand washing them), I’d like to use the porcelain dinnerware daily, use in the freezer/oven, wash in the dishwasher and feel happy to serve my guest a steak and give them a steak knife to use on the dish.

I used to own a Maxwell and Williams basic white dinner set and within 3 years of use the plates looked quite worn, which is fine, I mean it’s their job. But will the Pillivuyt slow to age? Will I still be happy using them in 20 years time and then some?
What are your thoughts?
