It is really beautiful. Just be prepared on how dark glass is. It would not go in every bathroom.It is black. When you look into the bowl you will see the gold flecks but you don't see many of them unless you look very hard. Mostly you just see black glass. It is very dark and would not go in every bathroom, but will look beautiful in ours. It surprised us on how dark the bowl was. If you need something that is not quite formal this is not the basin for you. It is formal, and beautiful. Think of a bathroom with it's tuxedo on. Very formal.
