It's beautiful yet smaller then expected. My fault. Its measurements were noted. Think it being placed near "similar" items is what I focused on. For those that say it seems cheap, they may not understand the process of making this item. Please review the information about the process... "Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz come through as tans and browns underneath the paint."
This clock is a beautiful, colorful work of art! When I took it out of the box I was so happy to see that it was just what I expected from reading the description. The variations in the gorgeous colors show natures artwork in the natural shells used in the clock. Thank you Overstock, for offering such beautiful, unusual pieces for my home. Thank you to the artist for sharing his talent!
An ad for this clock popped up on Facebook. I was immediately drawn to it and purchased it on the spot. I have a beach theme in my family room with lots of oranges and blues and I needed a clock in the room badly. The fact that this clock is made from oyster shell (it is not plastic as you may think at first) works beautifully in my room along with the colors. It is very shiny which I like. The 13” size is perfect for the spot I wanted it for. One reviewer had said she had trouble getting it to hang straight. I found the clockworks on the back swivel a bit, so I had no trouble getting it to hang straight. I am very pleased with this purchase. I tried to upload pictures but it isn't working and wipes out everything I have written here. I don't want to type it again! :o)
I purchased this clock because the colors in the photo were perfect and it is described as metal art clock. The clock looks like a large plastic painted dinner plate.. not metal or mother of pearl. Very light weight. Definitely not worth * bucks. Don't waste your money.
It's a gorgeous piece, truly a work of art. I wanted a clock but it's so much more than that. It's stunning!!! I absolutely love it. It arrived quickly. The packaging was well thought out with multiple layers of bubble wrap and popcorn too.
This clock is beautiful! My parents are from the Philippines and Capis Shell anything has been a favorite of mine since my fist visit in 1969. This clock came incredibly well packaged. Practically speaking, it is quiet (no annoying tick-tock) & keeps time well. The battery has lasted, too. This wall clock is in our living/dining room and replaced another clock that was in the same, exact spot. Since putting it up, we’ve had several compliments (never had a single comment regarding the previous clock). Would buy again as a gift. Thank you!
I love it. It looks beautiful! I was planning to put it in our living room next to a multi-colored mirror I have but my husband had already hung it in the kitchen after it arrived to replace another clock in there and it does look pretty. The oyster shell face is really perfect against the outside frame. I would definitely recommend it.
It looked very pretty. When it arrived it was smaller than we thought it would be & was very delicate. Looked better on line.
I’m very pleased with this product and will recommend it to friends.
Lovely unique and artistic piece .. colorful, just like the photos! Love that it is hand crafted and supporting women artisans! It arrived quickly. was very well packed and in perfect shape. It really adds a great pop of color and interest on the wall in our home office. Very happy :)
Beautiful clock, works well. I placed in living room and the colors are brilliant. I have received many many compliments. I would like to see this in different sizes and shapes using the same colors. Thank you for providing a great clock.
This wall clock looks as good as, if not better than the image on the website. I love the colors and shine of the shell material. It looks beautiful in my kitchen!
Love the look of this clock. Helps finish the room with the colors that blend with my yellow chairs. Two things: 1. I wish it was bigger for that price, and 2. Had to realign the clock mechanism with the clock face. It was easy but should be noted that it came with the face misaligned so the 12 and 6 were not in the correct position. Just needed to turn the mechanism on the back so that the clock hung properly.
Really vivid colored clock! Came in damaged, was crushed in packing, but OS sent a new one out and it works and looks great! Not high quality but very colorful and bold. Looks great in my bedroom. Very pretty bold look, but about the same quality of a inexpenisve clock you would buy at any store. It's all plastic but looks great and I love it!
I bought this clock for my new home, it is more beautiful than the picture. The colors are vibrant and the whole piece is one big shell. Pulls the colors together from my area rug. I showed to my sister and she ordered one also. I give this a five star. Keeps perfect time. Every guest makes a comment about how unique it is.
The materials are nice, I appreciate it was made for the World Market section but it was much smaller than I had envisioned. It was my fault for not measuring well but I had gotten some similar material colored decorative wall leaves that I loved so this was a little disappointing for the cost of it.
Purchased this as I liked the colors on line ! Wow the pics just don’t do credit to the product! Looks rather like a plate.. just incredibly beautiful. I’m very pleased with with purchase ! Congrats to the artist!! Thank you !!
After receiving this clock, didn’t think it was worth the money paid. It’s made from plastic, not metal as I thought it would be. The hands on the sail were bent and the noise from the ticking is night. There was mother of pearl to be found on this product. Craftsmanship in construction is lacking. Disappointed with this product.
The quality is good. The clock is very lightweight. It looks good on the wall. We have it in the kitchen and it matches the decor very well. The colors are vibrant. It is one piece. In the picture it looks like there are gems on it but it is one piece - nothing glued on. I thought the time would not work because the hands were a bit bent when it arrived but I was able to easily straighten it out.
This clock is it beautiful work of art and a very unique piece I plan to hang in my office. Love the mix of colors with some more vibrant as well as warm ones. Although the piece was carefully wrap to protect it, the only problem is with the clock hands being slightly bent so it doesn't keep time smoothly with the second hand.
