We will keep this piece though I am disappointed. It is black and you can not see the detail as you can within the photos presented in the product review. Currently, I am sitting less than ten feet away from the piece and it looks like a black item sitting on the table. However, the desciption says "The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to its unique qualities."
What a disappointment - the actual serving platter is nothing like the picture. The color is dark and it looks and feels cheap. I purchased two intending on giving one as a gift, however the quality and workmanship is so poor I wouldn't recommend it as a gift. I'll keep them (since I now have a pair) but I've learned my lesson!
I don't know, i mean i love elephants, but the picture display of this item is very misleading. i enjoy the finish and the craftmanship, but it is very small and ALOT darker than the display. Since i do love elephants though, it is a nice addition to my collection.
I was looking for a unique product as a gift for an "anything elephant" collector friend. I read the reviews and based on those and the price I ordered it. It's not perfect. The wood has flaws. But I must admit the more I look at it the more likeable it becomes. I hope I am not faulted for not getting two for a set. I give it a thumbs up!
THIS IS NOT A SERVING PLATTER. IT IS MORE LIKE A CANDLE HOLDER. IT SO MUCH SMALLER THAN WHAT IS DESCRIBED. IT ALSO FEELS LIKE THE WOOD HAS A WAX LIKE COATING ON IT. NOT ENTIRELY SURE WHAT I AM GOING TO DO WITH THIS SMALL THING, MAYBE MADE IT A CANDLE HOLDER OT A TOILET PAPER HOLDER.
