Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I ordered this mask from overstock.com, as I had ordered two others before (given them away), decided to go for my "African motif" in my bedroom (no swinging vines, though), and this looked nice in the website. I was extremely pleased with the item. There IS a hanging loop in the mask, so don't be afraid to order it. What pleased me the most is the enclosure from Overstock.com about the Worldstock Fair Trade, thanking me for my purchase and helping to support artisans around the world...."to connect them to a world who loves their work. Thank you for helping to make a difference in their lives with your purchase." Glad to do it and will probably purchase another to go on the other side of my "African Queen" lithograph hanging over my bed. Thank you Overstock for another wonderful item!!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
one of the better masks.. I think the color is darker than the picture shown.. it's closer to a black color than brown, but not quite black.. I'd say this is one of the better masks I've purchased and I have a few.. I was expecting a good mask because the reviews were so positive and this is about what I expected. Great mask.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? actual mask is darker..less brown
Please tell us about the quality of the product. great quality
I received this mask about a week ago and it came wrapped in very thick bubble wrap and was pleasantly suprised when I open the wrap to view the mask. The piece almost jumps out at you and the details are great. I did polish the mask with some wax and it really shines on my wall next to the lamp. It is perfect!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes even better
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Wood was very solid, beautiful craftsmanship, and the details are better in person than on line
