I was looking for a sturdy screen that would not tip over easily in order to block an open doorway ( unframable for a door) from over new mischevious kitten who can hurdle the highest pet gate available. I considered other colors but then thought silver might be interesting. The photo to me looked like an overwash of silver on leather. To my suprise, the screen turned out to be tinfoil shiny. We got used to it, and it is now dubbed the silver shield. The screen is fairly strong and the kitten has not been able to jump over it or knock it down. The screen came quickly and was undamaged. We were able to slide it out of the box and stand it up with no problems. The hinges are firm. A little bit of the leather is peeling from the top edge but I glued it down. I am not sure the color would be for everyone but the silver shield works for us.

I taped off and spray painted the hinges silver to match the screen. Otherwise, I get lots of compliments!

This is a beautiful piece. This was my splurge for my master bath. This mirror does not have the "silvered" (finish, backing..?) that is recommended but I don't see any problem with it. Glad that I purchased.

Again, I ordered an item whose color, as per the product description, was supposed to be silver but it is gold. A coat of gold color is often applied to silvery objects in order for them not to be the color of aluminum. This is what happened to this aluminum vase. I used some Goof Off (The Miracle Remover) to remove some of the gold color. The vase now looks more silver than gold, but I have not placed it in the living room as I intended to do. Because of the mediocre quality, I have placed it on top of the kitchen cabinets where it looks attractive enough near a couple of other decorative objects.

I bought this for my entryway table to display during Valentines Day. It is much nicer than I expected for the price. Lovely rich, deep red color and the silver trim adds character. Perfect size for candy treats, decorative balls or just display empty. Very happy with my purchase.

This is a beautiful mirror. It is definitely a perfect circle as opposed to the oval shape that it appears as in the image. My only "complaint" is that the one that I received is not a dark bronze color as is pictured, it's more if a nickel look but not quite as silver. It's still a great mirror, just wish it was the dark bronze as expected since that's what I was looking for.

This 2-tone silver celebrating Buddha is now standing in my garden, amidst the flowers, bringing prosperity to all. He is really most charming and unexpectedly rich looking for the cost. I think any one who loves Buddhas would welcome this one into their home and/or collection! He makes me smile every time I see him....

The item is a bright "tin foil" silver and not an "antiqued" or darker wash silver that the pictures might suggest. The alligator print is on both sides, which is nice and not something I was expecting. I like the screen, but feel that the quality is lacking for the price point. Unfortunately the leather is not secured very well at the edges and one panel in particular has a bunch of tiny rips and tears down the edge of the panel along with some gluey fingerprints. Its something that can be touched up at home, but for the price I would expect something better, maybe one or two rips and not 20. If I had seen this in a store I wouldn't have paid over **** for it. Also, the thing SMELLS really powerfully of plastic/vinyl/chemicals. I have secluded it in a room with the doors closed and the windows open until it airs out.

Three years ago i ordered 1 box of these icicles. The box wasn't anything special, just thick cardboard. One of the icicles was broken at that time. I loved them and ordered a box the next year. Those came in a really nice silver box that I now use to store both sets. Except for a cat caused accident that broke a couple, the icicles have lasted for 3 Christmas's now, and are still the highlight of the tree. If you store them carefully these will last a long time.

I ordered two sets, and now wish I'd ordered more. They are sized from extravagantly long to minicicle. The flow and freeze of real icicles was captured perfectly by these artisans. They look as though they were snapped off the eaves of a little cabin in a snowy forest. My holiday guests said they'd never seen anything like them. I had noticed that a previous reviewer did not love the copper wire lengths that were intended to be used as do-it-yourself hangers. I put the wires in the crafts drawer and used shiny silver premade hooks. I would give their appearance 6 stars!

I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a delicate addition to their Christmas tree. I decided to purchase my first tree, went with a silver theme and found these icicles to complement the color scheme perfectly. They are a soft touch giving an even classier look than expected. The store box given is perfect constructed to give a steady storage for the years to come. I am looking forward to seeing them displayed again next year. They are definitely worth the price considering you will keep them for years to come.

I really like this little vase, but the rim is not a bright, shiny silver color. More of a metallic, dull gray. The jar itself has a couple of tiny places where paint is chipped off. I kept it rather than the hassle of sending it back, because I got it for a very inexpensive price. I'll hope the grey metal and chips make the vase look old. lol Don't get me wrong, I love it,and will possibly buy one in another color, but would have been better pleased if the picture and description had matched what I received.

The photo really doesn't do this mask justice. The finish has a linen-ish texture which is emphasized if you rub it with a little lemon oil. The metal on the forehead is primarily silver. The mask in the photo has a much flatter profile. The one that I received is 4.5 inches deep at the forehead, or 4 inches from the wall to the deepest part of the nose. It was packed very well, and sent really quickly, and I love it. Thanks again, Overstock!

I majored in linguistics in school, so when I saw the name of this mask, I had to have it.The flash from the photo misrepresented the metalwork. It looks, in the picture, as if the metal would be silver-toned. It's brass. The metal work is really beautiful, and the shape and size of the mask are exactly what I expected. The metalwork's even better than expected. But what attracted me to this mask are the paint colors as they were represented in the photo. The colors are very bright and intense, and there is a sheen to the paint finish. In reality, the shiny red pictured is a dull matt brick . The yellow is actually a matt orangy-ochre. I will be putting this on the wall behind my sofa, which is bright orange pleather, and the pilows that I'm in the process of making for it are just as colorful.. So I'll be bringing the mask to the craft store to make sure that I get the right materials to make the paint look more like the picture.

I bought this to emphasize a scuptural piece, in a big, open room. I luv it for what I bought it for, although overall, it is a bit expensive for the materials. It makes up for this somewhat, with the fact that it is double-sided. I chose gold because of my color scheme & the price-point was lower than the silver or the black. I have other screens as well, and have also researched screens extensively. Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase; however, the color is bright, plastic-y gold, similar to the colored cap of a metallic spray paint can. At a distance it is fine, but up close it does not look as good. Other reviews have mentioned this as well. I am fine with this; but other buyers should be aware. If you have other golds/metallics in the room it will blend; but if this is the only metallic piece it may "stick out a bit" as an un-intended focal point. Still, for the price I paid for it, I am very happy & satisfied. Delivery was astounding fast.

I really like these icicles a lot, and am glad I purchased them... you will be too. They are pretty lifelike looking, and the varied size assortment will look great on anyone's tree. Being that I bought after XMas, I haven't seen them up, but I took a few out of the box to check them out and they'll be the perfect finishing touch to the tree next year. The packaging keeps them secure for storage, but I found them difficult to get out, and even broke an 11in one trying to remove it (I was being very careful). They're glass, so of course they're fragile, especially towards the bottom, but they packaged them so that they slide through a few layers of cardboard (think accordion), and at least on mine, they are wedged in there very tight. My only other gripe is that mine came with copper colored wire strands for hanging... a clear fishing line, or silver wire would make more sense to me, but that's easy to fix. If it weren't for these to issues if would have given these 5+ stars I would order 1 more set than you think you need. A) you'll probably just want more... they really do look that nice, and B) even if yours are easier to get out of the package than mine, there will undoubtedly be a little breakage over the years, so if/when that does happen, you'll be glad you have extras.
