I searched extensively online and in local stores to find attractive urn-shaped planters to hold flowering plants in summer and holiday greens in winter. Thought I had found the perfect fit in these planters, so ordered two in April. Although the description says they are made of quartz stone, they actually have a cement-like finish. Perhaps there is ground up quartz in the mix. They looked beautiful when planted with my summer flowers. However, it is now Jan. 1 and the cement-like finish on the base is cracking off. Very disappointing that they did not even last a single year! There was no literature with the planters indicating they were not winter hardy. I have purchased similarly constructed urns for half the price at a local discount store and they lasted a few years. Overstock tells me this product is beyond their 30-day warranty and no one else appears to have had this problem with the product. However, they have issued a small partial credit that I will have to use on another purchase. Regrettably, I am returning to the hunt for durable planters.
Attractive planters, but I too, was disappointed when they arrived. I was hoping that they would be the color that was shown on the screen. The antique white doesn't do much when standing against our beige stucco walls here in AZ and the concrete patio. I may go ahead and stain them a different color . I planted bouganvilla in each planter and they are doing quite well in them.

I was initially attracted to these planters based on the embedded design, which I love! Although the picture shows more of a cement-like color (which I was hoping for), in reality they are white. Aside from that, I think they will look beautiful once filled with flowers and greenery. Well-packaged, quick shipping, perfect size and terrific price (got them on sale). Can't wait to fill them up and place them pool-side for added color and aesthetics. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with these!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Much lighter, as I had noted from other reviewers.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality, not too light nor too heavy.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good, aside from the color shown in photo.
Save yourself some stress and heavy lifting. Do not order this urn, as Overstock seems to not have the inventory of this product that they have advertised/pictured. There is no white urn option yet we consistently (2x) rec'd a white urn, rather than the darker color pictured.
The size can hold a 5 ft plant. I liked the fact that there is a drainage hole. It arrived with a chip, so i just turned the chip to the back. It looks really pretty next to my front door. I like the light color of the urn. It looks really elegant w colorful flowers.

I was very pleased with the quality of these Urn Planters I orderd two and they look beautiful, I have had people knock on my door and ask where I purchased them, so I guess you could say they speak for themselves.
Is this planter paintable? The material listed is quartz stone, but the pictures seem to show a surface that is rougher/not as smooth as quartz stone, which in turn would make for a better painting surface. Thank youmsturlais on Sep 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello msturlais, This product is intentionally “rough around the edges” so it could definitely be painted on nicely. The is no glaze or finish on this product.
Thank you for your question.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 13, 2013
The description says that it is antique white, but the item pictured is more of a blackish-brown. Which color is accurate? The one photographed or antique white. Also, in the reviews people mentioned that it does have a drain hole. Is this true?groovycity on Apr 1, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest in the Christopher Knight Home Antique White Moroccan 20-inch Urn Planter. The picture is completely wrong so we are fixing this as we speak. The color is an off-white and will be pictured as such. The item does not have a drain hole in it but is completely possible to put a drain hole in with great ease. We hope all of this helps you out. Thank you for your business and have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 4, 2013
