I love this item!! I bought four of them so far...they make a great inexpensive gift for anyone who wears glasses...even sunglasses! They are hand carved out of beautiful wood and are cute, kitchy and useful...what more could you ask for? So far everyone who has received one raved over them and wants to get some for their friends. I love that each one is unique in wood grain and slight variations in color...it almost makes you want to name them! If you want a gift for someone and don't know what to get them...this is a perfect choice!
The Wooden Face Eyeglass Holder (India) is a great thing to have...you know where your glasses are at all times.
I have to preface this by saying that of the hundreds of purchases I've made online in the past 15 or so years, I've never once submitted a review of any purchased product... That said, I am completely pleased with this clever little way of holding eyeglasses. My father has been perpetually misplacing his reader glasses for as long as I've known him. Of the 10 to 15 discreet pairs he's actually purchased and re-purchased in the past few years, he can usually locate between zero and none of them at any given time. Enter the Wooden Face Eyeglass holder. The product is exactly as pictured and despite my worries about quality of craftsmanship, it is perfectly suited for a casual desk at home or as a conversation piece on an executive desk at work. Now his glasses have a convenient, funny and stylish home base that they always return to when not in use. His first comment after realizing what this was, was "Can you find me another one so I can have one at home and at work?" If I were forced to find something negative to say, it would be that the glasses might not sit completely level on the "face" if you have your nose bridge pads tweaked for your nose in a weird way. Not really a concern to pay much mind to.
I purchased 2 of these glasses holders for home use and enjoyed them so much I bought an additional 3 to give away as gifts. They are all exactly the same in terms of size and construction, the only variation being subtle changes in the wood grain and colour (as a result of the grain). They are well crafted, smooth to the touch, with a soft satin sheen appearance. I have several pairs of glasses with various lens sizes and shapes and all of them fit well on these holders. Their is enough base weight that they are not prone to tipping over and when not holding glasses they are interesting art objects - little Easter Island monuments.
When I saw this Wooden Face Eyeglass Holder, I knew immediately who would receive it as a gift. The person who I purchased it for is very special and loves unique and different items. My intention was to give it as a Valentine's gift, but after about 3 days of receiving it I couldn't resist. So now I have to think of something else for Valentine's. He was so excited when he opened it and continues to tell me how much he likes it. My only regret is that I didn't get more than one at that price. Thanks for sharing such a great and unique product.
I purchased this years ago,and use it many times every day. Its convenient sitting on the back spot of the counter, or side table. This wooden face easily holds up to 4 pairs of eyeglasses.
This wooden face eyeglass holder is such a cute place to store my reading glasses! The quality and finish is very nice too.
This little guy is sooo cute!! I purchased this wooden mini-sculpture for my husband as a small Holiday gift so he wouldn't misplace his eyeglasses and I think I love it more than he does, but he does like it too. It looks soo adorable on a nightstand or table or shelf, and the wood is good quality. It's actually a piece of ART, and functional at the same time (I LOVE functional art!) So, I think it's a hit! I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one of these as a gift for anyone that wears glasses... Heck, even SUNGLASSES look cute on this guy! LOVE HIM!
Looks great on my nightstand and keeps my glasses out of harms way. The notch along the back of the sculpture is wide enough to accommodate a thicker plastic frame as well as metal, and my glasses sit nice and level on the stand. I may have to order a couple more of these for gifts. The "carving" is somewhat primitive and just a little more attention to the details (around the lower nose and nostril area it could have used a bit more sanding, smoothing) would have made for a five star rating....but overall, I am very satisfied with the purchase.
This is a beautifully carved item. My husband has special glasses for his computer work at the office, so one pair of glasses is always sitting on his desk. He was just delighted with this item, a most unique item, and likely a bit of a conversational piece among the guys at work. I sure do recommend it.
Purchased these for my husband and he actually likes and uses the eyeglass holder. It was part of a birthday gift and at first none of our sons or my husband knew what it was; great fun guessing. Cute holder.
Who would have thought that this simply amusing eyeglass holder would make a difference in where you place your eyeglasses. Before, my glasses were everywhere now I place them in the holder almost instantly. I am so pleased with the excellent quality and its functionality.
My wife is consistently misplacing her glasses, this item didn't keep that from happening but when she is around her desk she always uses this handy little item. Now my wife no longer is digging through piles of paper saying where did I set my glasses.My wife thought it was some book end depicting the statues of Easter Island at first until I showed her the little notch in the back that holds the arms of the glasses. This design is neat and clean and is made with a walnut looking wood so it has a little bit of weight to it so it does not tip over easily.
holds my eyeglasses securely. great accent piece. makes a great gift for someone who wears eyeglasses or sunglasses
This is the second eyeglass holder I've ordered. The first was a gift for my mother to keep next to her bed. She loves hers and uses it every night - says it puts a smile on her face. Recently, my 9-year-old son found out he had to get glasses so this immediately came to mind for him. It serves its purpose while being a fun piece of artwork in your room. Definitely a unique gift for all ages!
I had purchased one for my hubby who's always losing his glasses. As a gag gag gift I got one of the wooden noses, so when he asked, "Where's my glasses?" I I could reply, "Look on your nose." He has several readers so I bought him another pair. He can now find at least 2 pairs.
I have tryed numerous holders over the years--This takes little space on Bedroom table,glasses stay in place,easy to put on and off holder, looks attractive. I purchased two of them-one for Living Rm & Bed Rm. Very secure holder--try holder-you will be pleased.
So cute! I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend, who was always losing his glasses. We placed this bedside, and it was like a little piece of functional art!
Is a very unique gift. The carver is very talented in his work.
If you are a fan of functional art, ethnic art, or faces, this is a nice product. About 6", it holds your glasses up where you can see them, and helps keeps them safe from damage. Nice wood, good craftmanship. I gave it as a gift. It was a hit.
