I read the reviews of all the vessel sinks available and decided to order this item. The picture does not do it justice. This is a beautiful piece of workmanship! The exterior will not flake off as with other vessel sinks of this design. As another reviewer stated, this piece is so expensive looking. It comes with a chrome pop up/ring. I purchased the KRAUS pop up/ring in oil rubbed bronze . . . beautiful together. My husband says this is an easy install as well. Such a great value for such a knock out look for my guest bath!
