Very easy to put together, quick & fun. All the pieces came with it. The copper bowl is light and thin, but it gives a metallic sound when thunked and it is not plastic. I have it set on a strawberry planter outside on a deck, to raise it up higher. The light is fairly bright but not obnoxious, because the bulb sits slightly below the top slate piece. The light is only white, which I am glad for because I have several color changing ones in my yard and garish colors would ruin the "zen" nature of this piece. Both slate disks have a nice greenish hue to them. The little fountain of water that splashes up is the only part affected by the light. I have the fountain set on medium, and the water from the fountain pump shoots up a good couple inches. It splashes a little but not bad. When the weather turns cold we will bring it indoors, and hoping with the setting on "low" the water won't splash outside the bowl. The only thing I wish is that the control for the pump were not on the very bottom of the apparatus. You need to take the fountain apart to get to the control to change the setting. I had a box full of lovely polished agates & other large colorful stones gifted to me by my grandfather when I was little. I am using them in the fountain. The included stones were ok, smooth pale yellow or tan stones. My gorgeous agates dress up the fountain. It is beautiful and very peaceful sounding - even just on medium it makes a substantial water sound. I don't hear the pump at all. I was able to ramp up the babbling brook sound a bit by changing the placement & size of stones that sit right underneath the top fountain of water. In the daytime the light is still on but not noticeable. One suggestion - don't be so impatient to see the fountain in action that you neglect to give the bowl, slate pieces & any rocks you use a good wash prior to setting up the fountain. I didn't do this & had a lot of visible dust circulating in the fountain after starting it. I just flushed it out with enough water to clear the water, it looks fine now.

Love this piece. My grandfather hand made my mother and I several beautiful quilts. I kept them boxed up, not wanting to use them because they were very sentimental to me. I hated not being able to display them. I love the design, adds a touch of antiquity. It holds three bed size quilts , and I love it!

was looking for an attractive accent clock for our entry/foyer table. This piece fits the bill. A miniature grandfather clock! the pendulum swing is a nice touch, don't forget to remove the sticker on the back of the clock when inserting batteries so that the swing goes! Was as expected.

I am using this to display my great-grandfather's crystal and cut glass. It is nice, but took awhile for my husband to put together. The little plastic things that you put into the unused shelf holes to camoflauge the holes do not stay in. The light works great on the top half, but the bottom half is not lit. You could get a touch light to use, I suppose. There is no lock, but my kids know to stay away from it. It fits nicely in a corner and looks nice. You might need two if you have a lot of things to display. If I had to do it over though, I'd personally get an antique one that was a bit larger and had a lock on it. It is made well,but just not like the ones you see from the 1920's. You would probably spend about the same amount if you looked in classified ads and at local antique stores.

If you look around, artificial plants are very expensive. For the money this is as good as it gets. From any distance except very close, anyone might think these are real (I have two, one on either side of a grandfather clock). My only two nits to pick are that the moss at plant's base is sparse, barely covers the styrofoam under it; and some of the leaves can be falling off when taking out of the box.
Midcentury modern refers to the time period between 1930 and 1965 when designers and architects began focusing on simple yet creative design. It was during this period that famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright experimented with organic architecture, building some of his most well-known homes and using scenery to inspire innovative designs. Some of the most recognizable furniture was also designed during this time period. From the Eames lounge chair to the slender tulip chair, the midcentury movement produced pieces that are still staples in modern homes. Read More
