I am a US citizen living in Brazil, and am sick of using the low-quality, plastic-handled stamped flatware that is available (and still expensive) here. I am not able to travel to the US to actually touch the flatware, so I am going on research only and am hoping for the best!

I haven't yet moved dishes down to Brazil or bought any here, but my tastes are eclectic - in storage in the USA I have Apilco white, Deruta, and a fairly simple white stoneware with a raised dot-band pattern. I also have a set of dessert plates with palm trees on them... I clearly buy what appeals to me with no thought of cohesion! That is what a number of moves in a short period of time will do to one.
Anyway, opinions? One of these two... or another idea?
