I bought this as a gift for my cousin who loves sunflowers. When she called to thank me, she said it matched the clock I sent her from Overstock last year--"same manufacturer and all"-- I was not expecting that they would be of the same design and felt a bit concerned about"duplication", but she said she had placed them in the same room and they looked terrific together. She was pleased, so I was pleased.I gave no rating for durability--that depends on her grandchildren, I expect.
Love it. It is a beautiful, eye-catching piece. If I buy a lot of fruit, it becomes a great fruitbowl. If I want to impress guests with a huge bowl of pasta, this piece is pretty and dramatic enough for such an occasion. I foresee HUGE gorgeous salads in my future, especially during the summer months, so I chose the right piece for presenting it at the dinner table or at a barbeque. Highly recommended.
