Rated 2 out of 5 by barbiegirl Disappointing.
I fell in love with this jewelry box the minute I saw it...I even changed around our closet organizer to make room to display it! The concept is so unique and delightful...whimsical, romantic, and Alice in Wonderland vintage. However, the execution just wasn't up to the concept. The various levels just don't sit together cleanly, and the drawers don't fit the way you'd expect them to for the price. The various hardware and embellishments seemed tacked on and not properly finished...and not in a cool way, in a messy, poor quality way. I might have kept this at half the price (MAYBE...it would still be a disappointment in quality), but for $300? No way. I expect so much better from Anthro, especially at that price. I'm so bummed, because truly the aesthetics of it are wonderful. I just wish it had been done right.

I bought this jewelry box after looking at it several times in the store. I absolutely love it! The top came off when the salesperson was tipping it over to scan the price so she gave me some money off which made it a deal. That's also why I took one star off for quality. It was just glued on anyway so it wasn't a big deal to glue it back on. This box is original and gorgeous! If you see it in person, you won't regret buying it. Beautiful!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AnthroHabitue Maybe more form than function
This was a gift from my husband and I really enjoy it. I don't know that I could've spent the full amount to buy it for myself. It is not all that practical. The drawers are fairly thick so the actual storage space is pretty tiny given the size of the jewelry box. You are buying this because it is unique, not to seriously store all of your jewelry. It holds my thinner bracelets and my earrings really well. A few of my bangle bracelets are too wide to fit in the drawer. I prefer to hang necklaces otherwise they'd probably tangle in the drawers.
I don't see any quality issues like other reviewers; it seems pretty solid and has charm. There was a strong glue/wood stain smell for a few days after shipping but that has dissipated.
If I could change one thing it would be deeper drawers with some dividers for smaller pieces of jewelry. That said, I can see that I will have this unique piece for years to come.
