I liked this so much that I ordered another! Mine arrived with all of the glass tubes intact, and very well-packaged. Looks great lined up straight, but the vase is hinged and can be arranged in a circle or wave. Great for tall, long-stemmed flowers. I found that it's easier to fill the glass tubes using a funnel instead of straight from the faucet.
Looks good, I am giving it a 4 stars because the glass tubes seem very fragile, one of them chipped right away and then broke with it's first contact with the metal base. I am assuming they won't break if you handle them very carefully, none the less I am right away left with one less tube. It looks like in the picture although the picture shows the bottoms kind of tapered at the end, it's all even, no tapering which I suppose makes it slightly less elegant more industrial.
I bought one of these (I thought) for rooting cuttings in my kitchen window, but inadvertently I ordered two by adding it to my cart twice and not paying enough attention in the order process... My own fault completely. But guess what? I absolutely love them! They're beautiful. No one can make me send one back. No one. Ever. Like Jefferson's serpentine brick wall at UVa, they're more stable when curved, and of course even more so when curved in both directions. What I like best about them is their simplicity. They'd enhance just about any design style, because whatever you put into them becomes the star. I also like how little room they take up on the windowsill, compared to a collection of vases or jars or water glasses. I'd actually thought of getting a rack of test tubes, but these actually take up less room and are waaaay more attractive. They were packed extremely well, with the tubes nestled individually in a large-ish styrofoam pack. I couldn't be more pleased.
This is a very cute and unique vase. You can also change the positioning to give it a different look . The only negative is that it could easily tip over.
