We received the two vases very quickly - in fact they came a day or so earlier than expected. They were very well packaged and arrived safely. The workmanship is good and they are sturdy. We did not receive any sand packages to stabilize the bases, but as it turns out, we didn't need them. The top portion of the vase is gold, and it is very shiny. The bottom section is lacquered and also very pretty, but if the vase was all gold, or all brown - it wouldn't be as striking. I must comment about the packaging. Since they are packed so well in order to keep them safe in transit - there are also tons of Styrofoam peanuts in each box - and they can be very, very messy! Follow the instructions that are included so you can get the large vases out of the boxes without damaging them. We followed the instructions and we were still picking up little pieces of Styrofoam for a week or so afterward. If you can possibly open the boxes outside, it might be a good idea to do so. Each vase comes with branches of the manufacturer's choice. Ours contained brown branches - which worked well for us. There is also a block of green foam and a bit of moss to use at the vase opening. I used neither of those items, and simply stuck the branches into the narrow vase opening and fanned them out. Our vases are up on shelves, so no one will be looking into the vase. If you use them as floor vases, and want a great deal of height - you may want to put the branches into the green Styrofoam wedge, which you'll need to carve down to the proper size and cover the opening with moss. All in all, I'm happy with my purchase and the vases are a dramatic addition to our new media wall. I would definitely recommend them.
Such a simple and clever idea, and I am a bit surprised how much I love this thing! We have two small condos, one in Milwaukee and one in Palm Springs, and I have this on a wall in our PS master bedroom. I love being able to put a small bunch of fresh flowers in it to brighten the room when we arrive, and yet it does not take up any valuable tabletop space, which is limited. It is beautiful all by itself, and looks very cool with flowers... I love it so much I am ordering a second one for our master bedroom wall in Milwaukee. It has a vintage, somewhat arts and crafts look to it, and blends nicely with our eclectic, transitional decor. The glass is very solid and heavy, and the metal bracket looks like forged iron, although it seems a tad on the thin, flimsy side when you handle it... but so far (over a year) have not had any issues with it.
Beautiful, rich color -- even nicer than expected. The look of the vase is both classic and modern -- perfect for our transitional family room. The color is a deep, rich red ...almost burgundy. We have used it in an arrangement with three red bamboo vases of various shapes and levels. Looks great next to our fireplace! The product was VERY carefully packaged -- almost overpackaged. But hey, it arrived with no damage so I can't complain. These are light in weight, so you will need the sand they provide to help stablize the base.
This was a lovely jar, but it was broken in transit and I had to return it. This is the only product I have bought from O.com that I have had to return. I really enjoyed products from O.com and will continue to buy products from them.
