Rated 4 out of 5Â by Edie27 Beautiful Piece
These pieces are high quality, hand crafted, and beautiful. I will definitely buy all 3. My only disappointment is that the product description reads "set of 3". which implies you receive a set. I thought the price of $48 for a set of 3 seemed to good to be true, so I wasn't too surprised when only one arrived. I think the description should be changed simply to avoid confusion, but I absolutely recommend these. They are perfect as gifts or ornaments all year round!

I purchased half a dozen of these last year, some for myself, and some as gifts. I am a sucker for handmade glass items (particularly fused glass!), and you usually don't see things like this outside of art fairs, galleries, and small shops. Kudos to Anthropologie for supporting smaller artists and giving them a big venue. Another big two thumbs up for these being made in the USA.
These ornaments are gorgeous. Since they're made by hand, each one is a little different-- It could be the way the color swirls or it might be the shape of the glass (it probably won't be exactly round). So, if precise uniformity is important to you, you might want to select different ornaments than these. (Or, if you're just selective, I'd recommend going to an Anthro store in person to pick out which ornaments you like best, to avoid disappointment if you order one online and it differs from your expectations.) I love that no two are exactly the same and enjoy their handmade charm.
These are not super "holiday" looking, which makes them useable for things other than your Christmas tree. One of the people to whom I gifted one of these glassy treasures has it hanging in her tree outside her house. Another has it hung in her window year-round.
