You must buy these vases. I have seen very similar vases in retail store after I purchased these and was waiting for them to be delivered. Price wise I was upset that the ones in the store were cheaper until my delivery of these beautiful vases came. These vases are taller, weighty, better quality, shiner and more appealing then those in the store. I would buy these twice over the cheaper versions. The aesthetics it gives my room are great. Love the weight I don't want décor in my house to fall over from a simple bump. I paired these with the casa lamp that has same distinctive pattern.
