I purchased this Glass Photo Vase as a gift for my Grandparent's anniversary, & they absolutely love it! I copied the idea in the photo, & went out and bought some clear glass vase filler beads & a variety of silk flowers...(both of which are available in just about every craft section of your local supercenter/s). I'd also restored their wedding photo for them, in black & white, and it looked really beautiful in this frame. The whole ensemble turned out to be a very pretty focal point in their home, & a great conversational piece. The vase/frame is a good size, & it's very heavy; the glass is quite thick. I could also see this vase being used for wild flowers, or garden flowers...you can put water in the vase without harming the picture. The frame part for the picture is on the outside of the vase. If I could give it 4 & 1/2 stars instead of 5 I would, since I do think that the price is a little high for this item, at over $****...but at the same time I don't regret the purchase & it made a lovely gift. Thanks Overstock!
I bought this as a present for a friend who loves palm trees and photoalbums. It was a very beautifully crafted piece. I was originally a little dissappointed that it didn't have more room for photos but got over it quickly when I saw how unique it was. I bet there aren't two that are exactly alike!
If one wants something uniquely crafted and unusual, this is a good choice. It's very rustic and made of interesting materials. It is more likely to be an item for display or show as it may not hold up to a lot of use and thumbing through. Still a unique item for those who have it all and moderately priced.
