I purchased these for Christmas presents this year, so I can't yet tell you what the recipients think of them, but I think they are gorgeous! They shipped quickly, were extremely well packaged/protected. I opened them and they are stunning. I am sure my daughter will love them.

The ponies are beautiful, very artistically stylized and the glaze is very shiny - like the picture shows. The color is more green-ish than blue, however, I do like the teal color. They are very artistically stylized and the pony "hooves" are unglazed, a very nice touch. My husband, not a ceramics or decorative items person at all, remarked, "Wow! Those are really nice ponies." and placed them on his desk. Now I need another pair to gift for the original intended recipient. SIze: They are rather smaller than I anticipated, but true to measurements. Think: Christmas tree ornament sized. The ribbon attached to them is more of a coppery-gold color and obviously meant for hanging. It complement's the glaze well. Removable/replaceable. Shipping/Packaging: These arrived incredibly well packed in many layers of cushioning materials - so breakage will only occur if you are rough and run over them or something strange like that or drop once ponies are OUT of the packaging. It consisted of a sturdy outer shipping box, a more flexible but just as sturdy inner cardboard covering wrapped and taped, tissue paper wrapper with Novica label on it around a big, oval "french-soap"-sized wad of very thick, almost fabric-like fancy paper wadding up to 2 inches thick. Then, only then, do the ponies reveal themselves, safe and shiny.

I bought this bowl as a gift to my mother and she cried, it was a good cry because she was so happy with it , the bowl is beautiful and sturdy just what she wanted for her oriental garden, the only thing that was puzzlling was the blue and white strip around the top was plain white she loved it anyway its a beautiful bowl I will probably buy her another one to match.

If you are expecting a blue and white jar, this isnt it. This jar is GRAY and BLUE. Top lid does not match the rest of the vase. I ordered two and am very unhappy with the color and difference between jar and lid. Returning these.

Have ordered 4 pieces, 2 were great but this piece was made well but was very faded looking. Did not have the strong blue and white quality I was looking for.

These hooks were for the bathroom for a hand towel or to hang the hair dryer on. They are very pretty, unique, and functional. The blues and greens are lovely, like sea glass.

This dragonfly is fantastic!! I can't wait to display it along with my blue Haitian frog, and my pink Haitian gekko. I just hope that the money will go to help someone in need in Haiti...

I have a large collection of antique blue & white porcelain and these pieces fit right in. I've also begun to collect coral & white pieces. I haven't seen any at O. Hoping to find some in the near future.

I chose the blue Toran and I absolutely love it. I hung it up immediately and it looks wonderful in my foyer. It fits nicely in a standard interior doorway and has 3 loops sewn in for hanging. I am quite happy with this purchase.

This is more of a shallow bowl than a plate , which is fine for hanging ( which is what I wanted) but my biggest issue is the color. I was expecting a blue and school bus yellow ( which has a lot of orange in it). But it's all orange, lije the fruit. Quality beside the color s fine. Just not what I was looking for.

Added two of these (blue) side by side to the door frame above our sliding glass door- perfect frame for the view of the lake, gives me a smile each time I see it. Stitching, mirrors, embroidery: everything is solid.

The base of the vase is not flat. One side is nearly 1/4'' higher than the other so it wobbles. The neck of the vase also has large noticeable blue smears and there are smudges/fingerprints in the pattern area. The pattern is attractive but the vase is such low quality that it should have been discarded as a defect rather than shipped to a customer.

Overstock quickly sent a replacement which is on the way. The customer service rep said they must have sent the wrong color when I told her what I received. It was not the intense blue I expected. Color is terra cotta brick with brown and green. I also ordered. "Red" vase which was brown and faded. I don't think this is just minor variation that would be expected with handmade objects. Cheaply made and looks mass produced, not worth the money,

Ordered one as a gift. Loved the Toran i received so much, that i kept it for myself and ordered another one for the gift. Then kept that one, too :) and ordered the 3rd. I love the way the mirrors almost twinkle when you walk past them because of the changes in reflected light. All the colors are deep, rich colors. The 'yellow' has an edge trim of red, so that contrast was actually not quite as pleasing to me as the more same-palette tones of the red and blue...but it was still beautiful. I have them hung by their sewn-in loops at the top ends (there's one in the middle too) across the start and end of a narrow hallway. It looks beautiful.

The first reviewer said just about everything I was going to say. These two ponies arrived (shipped separately) VERY well protected and little later than the other items I bought at the same time. I had intended to give them to our horse-crazed stepdaughter, but when my husband saw them he said, these are nice, we are keeping them!The glaze is uniform in thickness and doesn't have an bumps or drips (pottery folks will know what I mean). The nice gold ribbon that comes with each can easily be replaced and these ponies are perfect for a Christmas tree. The tips of the ears and the tip of the mane are tinted brown. The color is a dark teal (under house light they look green, under sunlight they look blue) and the artist engraved his or her initials on the belly of one of them. I too thought the unglazed hooves were a nice touch.I am extremely pleased with this purchase, thank you Overstock!

I'm very pleased with this planter. It complements the asian antiques I've inherited. The quality is such that it fits right in! Because my planter is sitting on a sideboard, I opted for a flat, 2" tall stand rather than the tall one shown in the photo. Please note that stands are not included with these planters, but I agree with the marketing decision to show how nice that tall stand displays this lovely piece of pottery! If my planter sat on the floor, I would get the stand shown. There are no drainage holes in this fishbowl so if you are using for a plant, be sure your pot will fit inside & take careful measurements. All this info is in the description , but I noticed the other reviewer missed reading that the stand isn't included. It's unfair that she lowered her rating of this nice pot due to her lack of reading the info. I highly recommend this pot. And check out the other colors & patterns, as I had 2 choices for blue and white. It was not easy to choose between them!

It really depends on where it will be displayed. BUT the color is not white

This product was better than I had expected. Reminded me of antique umbrella stand my parents had in our home.
