    Story Behind the Art:
    All of these oriental alabaster products are made by the same workshop and have been for the past 12 years. Our artisan is Mr. Mahmoud Abdel Nabi, who was born in the Egyptian countryside, but who moved to Cairo and grew up there from an early age. Mr. Abdel Nabi has worked in the field of marble, alabaster and stone for most of his adult life. Oriental alabaster is a translucent marble found only in Egypt. The ancient Pharaohs utilized this marble in many aspects of their daily lives and religious ceremonies. Its use in Egypt has been carried down to the present day. Of course, giving work to people is called 'opening homes,' here in Egypt. To be able to help people by giving them work, is not only a responsibility, but a pleasure.

  • MUCH smaller than they appear

    This was the most overpriced waste of money i have ever made. You'd be lucky if you could put one flower in each of these cup-sized "planters". The picture is EXTREMELY misleading. Save your money and opt for a better set of bigger holders. I made the mistake of buying two sets...and now i look like I have a very nice set of drinking glasses.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality, but sooo tiny!
    • How accurate was the sizing? No sizing was shown in the description...the cacti in the picture made them appear much bigger.

  • Small but love them

    I would not purchase these for a plant, as they are quite small however, I put a battery timed candle in them, so they come on just as it gets dark and they give a great glow and look awesome. I'd have them all over the house if it wasn't over kill. They truly are nice pieces and very good quality.

  • Very Small

    I usually don't write reviews, but I have too in this case. First, items are very small. Second, very poorly packaged. They were broken when received. Lastly, the so called pots contained rat feces in them. Product has been returned along with the rat feces. Do not buy this product.

  • Beautiful stone vases as candleholders

    Beautiful vases (all 3 same size) that I intended to use as illuminaries/candleholders. Works nicely with tealight or votive candle (I put votive in a small glass votive holder inside "pot" so as not to ruin the inside of the "pot")--the glow is amazing!! Looks nice as a 3-some lined up on mantle or in middle of dining room table. I was inspired by a recent trip to Mexico where I saw alabaster lamps in my hotel room and all around the fancy resorts in Cancun. The lamps are pricey and difficult to ship back to U.S., so this was my compromise as a gift for myself.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. heavy for size, thick "stone" not likely to crack
    • How accurate was the sizing? good
