THE MORROCAN VASE BLUE COLOR IS SO RICH AND THE TEXTURE SO LUCIOUS THAT IT APPEARS AS IF IT COULD JUST MELT IN YOUR HANDS IF YOU HANDLED IT TOO LONG. THE SIZE IS GOOD BUT I WOULD'VE LIKED TO BE PERHAPS JUST A FEW CENTIMETERS LARGER. BECAUSE IT HAS OTHER HUES IT PICKS UP NICELY IT SURROUNDING COLORS. I WAS VERY HAPPY WHEN I RECIEVED. I BOUGHT IT AS A GIFT FOR MOM AND ALMOST KEPT IT FOR MYSELF. I WILL BE RETURNING TO THE WEBSITE IN SEARCH OF PERHAPS TWO MORE BUT EACH A BIT LARGER THAN OTHER TO DISPLAY THEM A GROUP. I TRULEY LOVE IT. THANK YOU, LMBS *****I GIVE IT 5STARS
This ceramic vase came carefully wrapped in bubble-wrap and paper to insure safe delivery. The details engraved are vivid and colorful. The artesian is truly talented. I was very satisfied with the delivery of this product. It arrived in about 5 days over a weekend. I would order from this vendor again.
This vase is so pretty. Pretty isn't the word. It's stunning. I have worked in ceramics some--NOTHING LIKE THIS; but I so appreciate the art and craftsmanship of the individual who did. I love that it isn't factory made and has that sense of warmth that comes from someone's hands. I love that Overstock has the Worldstock Section. As the title says, I bought this as a housewarming gift for a friend who has visited and loved Morrocco, however I'm having a hard time parting with it. I do wish the turquoise had been available. I guess I'll just have to buy another blue one and my friend and I can have matching decor! It really is lovely, but if you're looking for something totally pristine this may not be for you. There is a small blemish (that I think adds character) and the bottom is unglazed so be mindful of the surface you're putting it on.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? To a T
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Beautiful workmanship, one very small portion was not glazed but adds to its handmade-ness
- How accurate was the sizing? Perfect
ordered cobalt blue? Looks nothing like picture. Expected item to be much larger, get vase in the picture and that it would not look like it had a rushed paint job. Don't want to go thru hassle of returning, so will try to work into decor with other vases I own.
A picture does not always describe a product. This is not a vase but a ceramic pot. If the one i ordered had a hole in the bottom i would use it as a planter.

I will continue to check "O" before buying anything ... have not been disappointed with my purchases. I recommend looking on Overstock to friends all the time.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Much prettier in 'real life'
- How accurate was the sizing? on the mark
Just received today. The quality seems o.k., but the colors are no where near as bright and vibrant as pictured. ( The photos probaby reflect the camera flash.) I ordered the blue to try and compliment the bright royals, teals & golds in my bedroom. Well this is a very muted, dull navy/moss green and hardly has any shine. It's an o.k. vase if that's what you're looking for, but I'm probably going to send this one back. This is my second "Worldstock" order and the second time I've been dissapointed. oh well.....
Very light weight. I expected this to be more substantial. The color is a lot weaker than shown. There are many imperfections on this vase. I would not recommend it. It looks beautiful displayed on the web-page. Once you get it home, you'll be disappointed.
With a second order of thiis vase I decided on the brown and turquoise. What I recevied was an emerald green glaze that apperaed very muddy and very careless. There was not an ounce of turqoise as in the photo. Each vase is a bit different( that I like) but the color represenation online was really poor.
I bought the amber version of this vase ages ago. It looks to me from the photos that the amber is the best choice if you want the different designs and colors to stand out. I have gotten cobalt blue and turquoise Moroccan ceramics elsewhere and the dominant color tends to bleed over everything. Pretty, but not very clear. If you want something more "professional" looking, go with the amber.
This is great. At least one other review said it was not detailed and intricate. Wrong! It is nicely painted and awesome that you can get a hand crafted piece of beautiful art for such a low price. I proudly display this in my living room.
