Rated 3 out of 5Â by amaliachimera Beautiful, but metal was too delicate.
Well, within 5 minutes of being out of the box, one of the metal hooks broke off. I was putting in the vases and got two in just fine, but the third broke off as I put in the final vase. When I looked closely at the metal, I noticed the metal was soldered/welded poorly and with haste. I attempted to repair it with epoxy, JB Weld, and a soldering iron, and none did the trick.
So, now I have 3 bud vases and only two hooks. And although the poor craft was a cause of contrition, my hand was what broke it, so I didn't feel like I can return it. :(

I received these as a Christmas gift and am so happy with them. I haven't really tested their durability quite yet (the beakers feel somewhat fragile). The pictures of this item online do not do it justice. The white background doesn't show the definition of the beakers. They are very lovely!

Â by BucknellGirl Pretty, Simple, arrived slightly bent
Bought as a wedding gift for a 25 year old fashionable Biochemical engineer friend, because of the chemistry flask-influenced design. She liked it and was very surprised, because it is so unique. Filled it with 3 purple wild clovers from my backyard. Neck of each flask is very narrow, so really only 1 or 2 stems will fit in each. But it looks best that way, simple and rustic.
The metal rings in which rest the necks of each flask arrived bent, so each flask hung at an odd angle downward. Had to bend it back with a needle-nose plier before gifting it.
