This charming chest is wonderful to look at, but the material flaws in the construction of the legs are a serious drawback. The first one arrived with three of the four legs broken off. Overstock quickly and graciously replaced it. The new one arrived intact, but the problem with the legs became clear. All four are loose, because they are made of some sort of fiberboard which separates at the attachment point with the body of the chest. I have elected to keep the second chest and strenghthen the legs with some wood glue and a bit of paint repair. In short, it's a nice looking piece, but this company's construction practices could stand a lot of improvement.
I was kind of hesitant buying something like this online, specially after reading the reviews..but I fell in love with it, and decided to order it anyway. It came 100% intact,no broken legs..no scratches.. it was very well packaged. It was smaller than I anticipated though, but that was my miscalculation,and the size does not minimize it's beauty. For the cost, and the hassle-free delivery, it is definitely worth it
Recieved peice and was dissapointed to find it damaged. It was packed sufficently, but one of the legs was completly broken off. This is a pretty piece at first glance, but it is very lightweight and the craftsmanship is not the greatest. First item I have ever returned to overstock.
My comments on the quality pretty much sum it up. It is lovely to look at, but it won't take much handling.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It was not well made. One leg was broken and two others were wobbly, but I repaired those problems (good old Elmer's glue) and kept the chest since all I was going to use it for was as a display piece on top of a china cabinet.
- How accurate was the sizing? NA
Nice large attractive box but arrived with three legs broken, used wood glue since needed the item before visitors arrived, but one leg nearly unfixable. Glue not attractive but not using item in featured location, rather for storage against a wall.
I was so disappointed when I received this last shipment ! ! The left side was a mess - both legs had fallen off. Just didn't want the hassel of returning it and waiting for another one. Everything else I have purchashed has been wonderful, packed so well couldn't imagine that anything could break.
The Galloping Horse Storage Box is simply beautiful. It arrived in perfect condition, well protected in 3 nested boxes. The quality and workmanship is excellent, and the value for the price is outstanding. It's lovely as a decorative piece, but is also sturdy enough and large enough to use for storage (I use it to hold CD's). I love it!
After reading other reviews (after I had already ordered the Galloping Horse Storage Box) I was nervous about how it would arrive. I needn't have worried. The item was meticulously packed in three nested, very solid boxes. The legs were all intact. The storage box is beautiful and the recipient was delighted with it. We may add a coat of sealant to the top of the box to protect the painting that's on the lid, but other than that, the quality and workmanship was very good, and it was an excellent value for the price.
