I was thinking that these Mikasa dishes might be perfect for darkening up your everyday dishes and bringing some gothic style into your home. These aren't elegant or delicate enough for vampiric decor, and the wrong color and material for steampunk. But I'm thinking some nice sturdy microwaveable, dishwasherable stoneware might be a nice addition to a gothic kitchen. Especially if you have kids!
You can find all these and many more Mikasa Stone Glaze dishes in black, on eBay.
