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.
