I accidently broke my friend's saucer that was part of her gravyboat so I wanted to replace it. It's a charming set. Unfortunately, the seller had no clue as to how to package fragile items. I did get my money back & purchased the same item on EBAY. This time it was wrapped with foam peanuts & bubble wrap. It arrived in perfect condition.
Very nice gravy boat and 1/3 the price at the local Wal-Mart! I am not sure why people do it, but the only difference I found, was that is was not in a box, it was sort of shrink wrapped, but who needs a $20 box?
