I like them! I have a large family so I got both "PEACE" and "JOY". The letters are elegant and sturdy with a good heft to them. They sit securely on the mantle. I like the fact that I can place them as close together or far apart as I wish (unlike whole-word hangers with multiple hooks). They arrived promptly and were packaged exceptionally well, with molded styrofoam to protect them due to their heaviness.
I had hoped that the letters would be shiny brass to go with other stocking holders we have, but the dull gold goes well enough. Letters are very pretty and this set will be used for many years to come.
This item is not nearly as bright and shiny as it is depicted in the photo. It is a lot duller and not as nice. The weight is good; it seems sturdy, that is about it. I will probably keep the item b/c of the shipping expense that I paid to get it here and what it will cost to send it back, but I wouldn't have otherwise. Disappointed.
The holders are sturdy and a good weight. However, the gold finish is not bright and shiny like it is depicted in the photograph. It is a very dull, rough finish. I am disappointed in that the finish is not what I expected.
