I purchased 20 of these vases to serve as centerpieces for a fundraising party I am planning, and everyone loved them! The black metal is slightly texturized (i.e. it's not smooth), and the vase is very sturdy (I dropped them several times and they didn't break). I love the amber hue, which gives it an ancient feel. The only negative was the little hook that holds the vase in place isn't very secure, but this isn't an issue if you don't touch the vase too much.
Overall, I am happy with this product. It was just the right thing to have at the top of my bookshelves, framing the entrance to my dining room. I have already received compliments on them.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Maybe a tad lighter in the sunlight
- How is the quality of the product? The base is a little flimsy. I bought two and one base was twisted somewhat.
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes.
