This is quite a beautiful urn which holds the ashes of up to a 200 lb person. I was impressed with the beauty and quality of the urn. The red velvet "storage" box is beautiful and holds the urn nicely if you choose. It has a screw top but I am not sure how sturdy it is and how it would withstand a fall or being dropped. I would advise having the funeral home seal it more permanantly if you do not plan on ever opening it for any reason. All in all I am quite happy with this Urn although obviously I have not had the opportunity to "use it" yet... An added bonus is that it is already bought and my children will not have to "spring for a casket"...
Ordered this for our son's English Bulldog. Our son passed away in the fall and his beloved companion a few months later. I am putting her out at the cemetery with him and this urn is just perfect. It is also of much better quality and a lot less money than the pet urns. Highly recommend this. Only con I have is that engraving directly onto top of urn is not available with order. I did have it engraved at our local Monument Company.
I was worried that the urn might not be "silver" enough since it's pewter, but it's perfect. In fact it's nicer than it's pictured. I came with a velvet case as well as a new plastic bag should you wish to transfer the contents into that vs. just putting it directly in the urn. The top screws on for safe keeping and it goes very well with my home decor. I couldn't be happier with the product and it's much cheaper than other urns I had priced. If you like the picture you will love the urn in person.
I feel that I made a good purchase with this product. It is in a glass-fronted cemetary niche. It looks lovely. The quality is top-notch. The only thing to be careful of has to do with how you place a name. Do not buy the stick-on plates; they fall off. You can either have the urn itself engraved, or stick the name-plate onto something flat at the base of the urn.
