The lacquer on these beautiful ornaments not only protects them, it gives them a glass-like look that is breathtaking. This is pure art in an ornament, and has gone into my "heirloom" collection. Deceptively light, they barely bend a bough.

I saw the mirror and liked its size and shape for the entry near the front door. Before I bought I went looking for better priced mirrors and found nothing comparable in price or looks. It has a museum shop quality that I could not find anywhere else online. It really is a work of art not just a mirror. Beautiful colors and the hand painted glass frame is also reflective of the ambient light in a very attractive way. Very happy with it.

This bowl is a bit more subtle than the picture, perhaps because mine is not in direct sun or light. It is a strikingly beautiful bowl.

I was concerned about the "flame" type pattern but the way that it's blended looks very nice. It is very well made! I plan on ordering the smaller one now that I know how nice it is.

This mirror is definitely artwork. The painted glass design that surrounds the mirror is perfectly executed and the golden color is very subdued. (Not overly bright.) The shape of the frame is unique and pleasing to the eye. There's nothing like this available in the stores. Great value, too. Ready to hang and not too heavy.
