It's advertised as being made of wood, but in fact it's a wood product like MDF; you can clearly see it from the way the stain is showing, it's not a wood grain but little 'hairs' of a wood product. Also, the application of the lacquer is poorly executed and is missing in some spots. It's sturdy enough but I sure didn't want such a low quality of work. It's going back! Just FYI for someone who is trying to match the size of the stand to a fish bowl being sold on this site - size 10.5" stand fits 16" bowl perfectly, no wiggle room.
This stand is to die for. I bought it to go with the classic fishbowl planter. It was too large however. Now I have ordered the 16 inch [planter hoping it will fit. I believe the small stand might have fit the 14 inch planter, but the stand is sold out now. I highly recommend this stand IF you get the proper sized planter to fit it. They even make a 20 inch planter! If the 16 inch doesn't fit I'll be ordering that, too.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? It looks black in the photo but it is actually a deep mahogany.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellant! I might buy another
- How accurate was the sizing? Too big for 12 or 14 inch fishbowl planter
Bought this fishbowl stand to hold a large bamboo tree. The manufacturer ships very quickly in a well-packed box. It's completely assembled, which is great. The only negative is that it looks black on the website. It's actually a dark cherry color. Would definitely recommend it.
Looks just as pictured online and very nice looking. I have had mine for several years now and it looks exactly the same now as the day I bought it. Having this kind of a plant stand really highlights a "fishbowl planter" and adds some nice height to elevate it off the floor.
Placed several beautifully designed vases on these stands, and the difference is striking! They added more depth and height to the plants, and make it easier to regularly shuffle them around different chairs and pieces of furniture. Equally important, the varying height differences make for a more wholesome and healthy looking environment.
