The first one sent to me was just strewn into a box with other items--i didnt need to unwrap it to feel it was in 3 pieces. Hassled with return and got replacement 5 weeks later. They requested special shipping which was nice, but the quality is so so. From the top it is a beautiful glossy gorgeous golden bowl, but the sides are dingy, matte, and dull to the touch and eye. For use on coffee table this would be sort of ok but on dining table or buffet where i intended, it is distracting. The last exchange was such a hassle i am regifting instead of being charged to return a poor product. Touch of Class: ive dropped hundreds on you in the last year--all to less and less satisfaction. This will probably be it.
