The Product was as described on the website. It came with interesting information about the artists in Bali that do the carving. The carved bird was beautifully done. The shaft of the cane had a uniform finish and looks good! My only complaint is about how long it took for Overstock to ship the product. It was 11/2-2 weeks. The website did state that it could take as long as 10 business days, but in this day and age, products should be readily available for shipment.
