I love this vase! It really looks like a traditional ming vase. When I first ordered it, it was damaged by the shipper and ended up being undeliverable. I contacted customer service and they rushed out another vase and the second vase arrived in perfect condition. The blue and white floral vase looks just like the photo online and it has such an elegant look and feel. I thought it came with the vase stand but after reading the fine print it is not included. Overstock does not sell a vase stand in a size 4.5 which is the exact size of the bottom of the vase, I did however find one on another site online fairly easily. It looks great even without the vase stand but it just adds that finishing touch for me.
I received my vase about five days after I placed my order. The flowers are very delicate and require patients when opening. I ended up soaking the flowers in water for about 30 minutes before I could gently open them. The finished product surpassed my expectations. I purchased the stand from ***. I wish I could submit a picture of my vase!
The vase is the size and shape I expected. However, the picture shows it as being WHITE. When I opened it up out of the box, I discovered it is a light bamboo color. I expected the vase to be made from a bamboo material, but to be WHITE, as the picture displays. I was a little disappointed with this. Otherwise the vase is a great shape/size.
I have and have given more than once. Love to use with table settings. On mantle, lined up in book case. Use dried flower..don't put water in vases. They're porous and water will accumulate on surface. Pretty at Christmas with spriigs of greenery w/berries. Pretty with nothing on a shelf. Nice bridal gift.
