The color Is so rich red . I just love it. I can not tell you anything bad about it . I never love something more it is one of my favorite things in my home I bought it twice. I even gave it as gifts. a good buy at any price and this is price right classic style.
I ordered this set for my mantle and they are very pretty. There is a kind of gritty feeling to the finish, like it wasn't polished up right, so the picture online is a little misleading as it depicts a smooth high polish shine. But because I am using them for display out of reach from hands, this doesn't bother me too much. They are a beautiful red with hints of yellow and white, pretty true to the picture. Overall I am happy with the purchase.
