"A cherished ornament"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this as representative of my mom holding me, her only child. She had passes away a couple of years before. I have it on my coffee table, the first thing seen as you enter my home. The wood is so beautiful and the colors so nice, they were inspiration for wall colors and accent pieces. I polish it with Liquid Gold wood spray (aeresol, not bottled which is messy) and helps preserve the wood. I love my piece??

"Mom Loved It"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The item arrived in a timely fashion. The wrapping was quality and acceptable. When my mom opened it for Mothers Day, she and my wife immediately lit up!! According to my wife, I got an A, for gifting. Quality and appears is just as shown. I was surprised the size was appropriate; I was afraid it would be tiny.

"I gave this away"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This looked nice in the picture, but the piece itself looked scary. In profile, this zebra has a mouth full of white teeth as if its grinning. The detail work on the front of the face was beautiful, but the paint on the eyes was very sloppy and they looked strange, like goats eyes. I thought about repainting it, but I was honestly unnerved by it when I unwrapped it, and put it in the utility room in my building so someone else could have it if they wanted.
