"beautifully sculpted, detailed and colorful"
Great customer care - ordered 6 napkin rings, received 4 broken. snapped a pic of the damaged rings, emailed to customer care - 3 weeks later received 4 new rings in pristine condition. Design - small but expertly crafted. Meticulous paint detail - not sloppy or rushed. Colors are glorious - better than the picture. These are a little fragile, but the joy I will get from using them justifies the extra effort of careful handling. I am very happy with these napkin rings and the follow up service.
