It is difficult to evaluate the bowl because it arrived with one leg broken off and a chip in the glass. If it had arrived in new condition, I would have been very happy with it; but based on reading a previous review (which said one leg of the stand was bent) I elected not to get a replacement. I suspect it was poor packaging that resulted in breakage because the box was not of sufficient strength to hold a 16-pound fragile item. Or, perhaps, the bowl wasn't inspected properly before shipping. In any case, I was uncertain that the legs are strong enough to support the very heavy bowl and that the only other review of this product reported the same condition. Overstock customer relations was prompt and very easy to deal with when I contacted them about the problem.
This bowl is a wonderful decorative piece to accessorize most rooms. I love the size and the stand. The bowl arrived with one of the legs bent and did not contain the decorative balls that were included in the description when I ordered. I believe the balls would have embellished the look of the bowl but when I call to find out why the balls didn't arrive with the bowl I was told that was an error and shouldn't have been included in the description. I am returning the bowl and will not be exchanging it.
