This comforter exceds my expectations. It is really beautiful. The throw pillow is embroidered , not stamped. The colors are awesome, just the perfect shades of gold and burgandy to go with everythign I already had. The only thing I am not really fond of, it the fabric. I wish it were more of a cotton, than a polyester. I could see it picking easily. The comforter is light weight, not really heavy. I have to admit I have not used the sheets yet,, but they seemed ok after washing.
