This was exactly what we wanted for our small basement bath. I'll admit that out of the box, both the vessel and the faucet looked large for our small counter. But in fact, we've got more room than we had with the previous drop-down basin. It's clear black glass, and a nice brushed nickel finish. The vessel sits just above the countertop on a brushed nickel disk, which makes it quite elegant. This was easy to install, and I love the push-button sink stopper. High quality and very much a great deal for the money.
