This set is not intended as a course in Chinese calligraphy, but includes only the tools and materials necessary - with the exception of paper, which is not included. Paper used for Chinese and Japanese calligraphy may be purchased from most art supply stores. The list of items included in this set is very specific and does not include an instruction manual. If you're unfamiliar with Chinese (or Japanese) calligraphy, it would be necessary to purchase an instruction book. Many are available at various price points and may be purchased from any large bookseller. This is a nice, reasonably priced set that would make an excellent gift with the inclusion of an instruction book and paper.

I like the organizer...good wood, solid construction. beautiful finish, and pragmatic in the way you can move the wood slots to accomodate spatial needs. My only disappointment is with the size of the bottom draw because you cant fit a regular size paper; the draw is smaller. Nonetheless, I bought two of them and they make a niced addition to my office.

I don't like this at all. Bought two of them for gifts for kids. There are no instructions and what is written on the box (very little) is all in some oriental language. The only good part about it is the container which looks very rich. Outside of this, it is useless.

I'll touch upon the two outstanding features of this item 1. It's poor quality. There is a small porcelain? basin that broke upon touch. Literally. This set is made from very cheap, breakable materials. 2. If you are not familiar with Chinese caligraphy, avoid this set. There are no instructions. I was very disappointed in this set, and embarassed that I gave it as a gift. It's a pity, because I have purchased great items from Worldstock before, but now I will be hesitant.

It's really authentic looking and fun to use. Takes you back to a time when penmanship was raw art. As I was opening the package I was hoping for some instructions that were not there.

Absolutely perfect....definitely worth every penny. Love the fact that the inserts/dividers can be removed, if necessary, to make room for larger items. Beautiful brass hardware on the front on drawer. The wood is finished , inside and out..even in the drawer and the back and bottom of stand.

This is a pretty nice little set. It was wrapped up in 3 boxes with fragile all over it, but it still came with a broekn piece.

I bought this for my boyfriend even though the reviews were iffy. The price is okay and I can see how the stuff would break because it is very fragile. Nothing I recieved was broken however the quality is not 100%. If you know anything about any of the tools that come with it I would recommend it. Not for beginners or kids for sure.

WELL, UNLESS YOU ARE AN EXPERT DON'T BUY IT. THERE ARE NO DIRECTIONS. THERE IS NOTHING TO HELP GET YOU STARTED. PLUS, ONE OF THE ITEMS WAS BROKE. I JUST GLUED IT BACK TOGETHER, NOTHING MAJOR. IT'S USED AS DECOR. IT'S IS PRETTY AND FOR THE PRICE I CAN'T COMPLAIN TO MUCH.

The only reason that I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is because it is much smaller that I thought it would be. The Set, though, is really beautiful! It's a beautiful gift for someone, with an attractive case, really nice brushes, and charming pottery pieces.

Easel is a simple easel I purchased to hold a print on top of my fireplace and works well. Arrived quickly.

I bought this to eliminate clutter on my desk and it is perfect. The quality is excellent. The drawer is very good size and works really well. There is ample room to store anyting you can think off.

I've had calligraphy sets before that were pretty good but this one is slightly bigger and slightly better quality. A great buy.

This could have been a beautiful desk fixture, but mine came with most of the the center pieces not fitting. Because it was so heavy to carry to the post office for send back, I kept it with regrets.

I'm not sure exactly what I expected, but this was not it. Although no size was actually indicated on Overstocks, I somehow expected the set to be larger. It is actually tiny. I bought it as a gift for a friend and was so embarrassed by its appearance, I threw it away.

This calligraphy set is pretty and nice to look at. I just wish that it came with some sort of instructions.

This is a really beautiful piece. Excellent construction and a lovely lacquered finish make it a stunning addition ot your desk for keeping all those pesky papers and other desk items in control. I highly recommend this piece to anyone who wants a beautiful sophisticated addition to their office.

It started with the lovely box, Upon opening, you find the pens, inks and small containers. It is going to make the perfect gift for a friend who is anxious to learn the art.

Despite the name, bookshelves are about more than just shelving books. Bookshelves make versatile solutions as free-standing dry food pantries, open dressers or displays dedicated to your knick-knacks and tchochkes. They quickly convert into china cabinets, media organizers or shoe storage. Whatever the case, the right bookcase goes miles toward making your home into the haven it should be.
In addition to the built-in cabinets and fitments that came with your house, cabinets can be gorgeous free-standing showpieces suited to any number of rooms. In order to maximize the decor possibilities of this unique type of furniture, you will want to learn the basics. Consider your storage needs, including shelving, drawers and locks, and think about your personal style and the space available for your new cabinet. This cabinet buying guide should help you zero in on the ideal cabinet for your needs.
Many homes lack adequate storage space. And without places to put everything you own, many items either get left out in the open or buried deep within a closet where you can't find them when you need them. Fortunately, there are many pieces of furniture that provide you with storage solutions without compromising style.
