My family lost our grandmother this year. She was both a devout Catholic and a Latin American art aficionado. My sister's birthday is on Christmas Eve, so I wanted to get her something that would remind her of our grandmother. I ordered this Nativity Scene and it was simply perfect. Each piece is beautifully carved and painted. The artist did a wonderful job and I know that my sister will treasure it for years to come.
The ponies are beautiful, very artistically stylized and the glaze is very shiny - like the picture shows. The color is more green-ish than blue, however, I do like the teal color. They are very artistically stylized and the pony "hooves" are unglazed, a very nice touch. My husband, not a ceramics or decorative items person at all, remarked, "Wow! Those are really nice ponies." and placed them on his desk. Now I need another pair to gift for the original intended recipient.
SIze: They are rather smaller than I anticipated, but true to measurements. Think: Christmas tree ornament sized. The ribbon attached to them is more of a coppery-gold color and obviously meant for hanging. It complement's the glaze well. Removable/replaceable.
Shipping/Packaging: These arrived incredibly well packed in many layers of cushioning materials - so breakage will only occur if you are rough and run over them or something strange like that or drop once ponies are OUT of the packaging. It consisted of a sturdy outer shipping box, a more flexible but just as sturdy inner cardboard covering wrapped and taped, tissue paper wrapper with Novica label on it around a big, oval "french-soap"-sized wad of very thick, almost fabric-like fancy paper wadding up to 2 inches thick. Then, only then, do the ponies reveal themselves, safe and shiny.
This poncho is very beautiful and very thick. However, the pictures are misleading. Either that or the one I ordered was made wrong!
The poncho I received does not fit properly with the points in the middle. It is misaligned. If I wear it so that the collar is a V-neck and the bottom points are supposed to be centered they don't. They lay on opposite legs in the front and back. I've never seen a poncho do this.
I decided to turn the poncho so the neck was rounded in the front and the points hung to the side on my arms. It fit perfectly! Why would they make a poncho to fit along your arms and cut as a short mid-drift in the front and back? It is long enough to fit a short person and keep them warm but if you are any taller than 5'5" it won't do anything a sweater wouldn't do. I'm going to return it and get my money back.
I bought this necklace for my wife as a complement to a pair of Novica earrings purchased earlier. There are 7 faceted garnet stones that are arranged to highlight their individual beauty, in my wife's opinion. They deep red, nicely cut & bezel-set in sterling silver. The chain is hardy. I think it is good value.
I got this for me for Christmas. (After you're married a while, you will understand.) :-) I immediately removed it from the black cord and put it on a silver chain I already had. I love it -- it's not huge / gaudy, but it is sizeable enough to be seen. Also, if you're a bit artsy, the curves make it just different enough to be a fun piece. I love it!
I collect nativities. I loved this one because it was so unique. One of the pieces was broken when it artived. Overstock replaced free and sent me the new one within a few days. Great customer service.
