Story Behind the Art:
Chinese ceramic stools date back to the Ming dynasty. This ceramic was handmade in Jingdezhen (Jingde Town), which has been termed the 'Porcelain Capital' because of its production of quality china. It has a 1,700-year-old history of china production. There are thousands of workshops in Jingdezhen that have been operating for generations.

Better quality than I expected -- very well made. Nice celadon (pale green) color with a shiny glaze. I plan to use indoors as a small table.Read More
My stool arrived today. It is beautiful! I love the color and size of this piece. I purchased it for my living room which is painted a sage green. This piece goes perfectly. I was very impressed with the way the piece arrived. It was packed extremely well. Another winner Overstock!Read More
Very pretty color. It is going into the new Oriental garden I am planning for the corner of my yard.Read More
Arrived promptly, packaged extremble well. Delicate Celedon glaze is exactly as pictured. Looks fabulous in my Zen patio. Love it!Read More
This and other stools I have ordered from this site have had glazing defects and look like seconds. If you don't mind imperfections, then they will work. This item arrived with very obvious deep brown spots not covered by the green glaze.Read More
it just arrived and it is greener than expected (as noted by others) but so sweet and perfect. i ordered it to be a side table for one bedroom chair. i just needed something to place a cup of tea, magazine, laptop ... but i didn't want it to over power. it is perfect!Read More
After eyeing various garden stools for at least 6 months, I finally committed to a pair of this product. I think what sold me was the pretty celadon green in the image -- though the comparably low price didn't hurt either. This was actually my first Overstock purchase, and some reviewers' comments about packaging worried me a little. Happily, it all turned out well. The package arrived swiftly and undamaged. The stools are a little heavier than I expected. The color matched what I expected from the image; it's a lovely pale shade of green. The pair of them looked handsome either indoors or out (I currently have them out). One somewhat misleading thing about this product is that although the title says "Porcelain Stool," the product is not that refined. (Note: arguably, porcelain *is* a kind of ceramic -- it's made of clay and quartz etc. -- but the process is more refined. As a result, porcelain is lighter, denser than generic ceramic.) So instead of "fine china," these stools are more like sturdy "bistro wares." One website I read argued that ceramic tiles crack more easily than porcelain tiles in cold temperatures, so I think I may have to bring these stools back indoors when winter hits, but, like I said, they look nice indoors too.Read More
This stool arrived in 2 days and is very beautiful light green color. I am using it as a small coffee table in my dressing room and it is very heavy and very beautiful. Very satisfied with my purchase.Read More
This transaction was much smoother than expected. The ceramic stool was packed well and arrived without damage. The surface of the stool is covered in a delicate pattern that looks better in person than the picture. Its three dimensional pattern as well as color. There are a few blemishes from the firing process (black specks) that would make this a second quality item. But the price more than offsets making it an excellent valueRead More

Traditional Wedding Anniversary Gifts
A wedding anniversary, whether the fifth or the fiftieth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Everybody knows there's a list out there somewhere that tells you the perfect gift to give for any wedding anniversary. But who can remember what's on that list? Here, at your fingertips, are the gift-giving clues you need, along with links to find these items. In Victorian England, it was quite fashionable to have large celebrations for anniversaries, and it's likely that this list of traditional anniversary gifts came from that time, although no one knows the exact origin for certain.

Modern Wedding Anniversary Gifts
A wedding anniversary, whether the first or the twenty-fifth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Giving a thoughtful gift to your partner is a wonderful way to show affection and commemorate the time you've spent together. Finding the perfect gift isn't always easy, especially if you've been giving each other gifts for decades. Where do you look for new ideas? This list is the best place to start. Each gift idea has a link to the department where you can shop for the items. In England, during the Victorian era, celebrating anniversaries with gifts and parties became very fashionable, and it didn't take long for the trend to reach the United States. The traditional list of anniversary gift ideas came from this time. Then, in 1937, a group of jewelers decided to update the list to include more modern items (and more items that they sold in their stores -- diamonds show up on the list three times). That's where this list of modern wedding anniversary gifts came from. Many items from the original list appear here, and we've offered even more contemporary interpretations of the ideas. If you want to give a creative gift, you can use this list as inspiration. For even more anniversary gift ideas, be sure to read our guides to traditional wedding anniversary gifts and anniversary gemstones.
