Use as art, not necessarily as a timepie. We have vaulted 12-14ft ceilings in our great room, and I had a large triangular space over a double window that needed something. While in a local antique store that also sold new items, we saw a similar product and I liked the idea of it, though it was expensive. The price for this was terrific on Clock Superstars. Due to its height, & because of DST we weren't to keen on having too borrow our neighbors 10ft ladder just to adjust time 2X a year. However, we did put a battery in the clock works. The clock works jiggled inside. the the hands started moving, but at times the hour and minute hand rubbed against each other. In all fairness, though our battery was good to 2014, we had had it a while and it may have been week, but when we hung it up, it was running. On a regular wall height, this would not be a problem. But as high as it is, we can't be bothered. I didn't really buy it for time - more of as a "sign" of a clock would be. It is for effect. It's always going to be 4:04 here and I am okay with that. With that in mind, I absolutely love it. I could try another battery and try bending the hands if it were at a reachable height. I did a lot of searching online and this was by far, the very best price. I am convinced this is the exact item I saw at an antique store and elsewhere on the web. It is heavy, sturdy, and very, very attractive. The time mechanism is made in China, and is typical of most new AA-battery clock works you find. There is a little black box that fits in from behind and connects to the hands. The metal on the clock - the pocket housing, if you will, is a very dark bronze. It is well constructed otherwise. There is one of those upside-down light bulb-shaped slots to hang on a nail or hook and then it slides down into place for secure fastening. Use an anchor if going into drywall, or if you are placing on a non-stud area.I've included a side view so you can see the thickness.
Absolutely beautiful mirror!!! Beautiful to use in so many rooms; Dining room, Foyer, Living room, Bedroom. It is a very large mirror that makes any room elegant, the framing is large with gorgeous detail. I could not be more pleased with this purchase. May order another one for another room. It's a show piece!
Beautiful Nightstands. I bought two of these to use as nightstands in the master bedroom. Our master bedroom is very large with 10ft ceilings and we have a canopy bed. These nightstands are large, which is great because they didn't get dwarfed in the room next to the canopy bed. Also, they add a wonderful touch of glimmer and glamour in the room. They add visual interest with a modern vintage look/feel. We love these! They look very expensive and are very well made.
Beautiful but delicate piece. This is definitely a beautiful piece. I purchased two of these mirrored chests to use as nightstands in my bedroom and they are absolutely beautiful pieces. Much to my surprise, these are easy to keep clean and when you touch them, they don't leave the obvious fingerprints the way normal mirrors do, I think because these mirror pieces are "antique finish" My only complaint is that you can't tighten the drawer pulls. The directions state to be careful when tightening and to not tighten them too much or the glass will break. We left ours pretty loose and had no problems but having the pulls that loose was kind of annoying. The larger pulls on the magazine drawers were always crooked since they were so loose. I tried tightening mine up the other day- not too tight but just tight enough so they wouldn't be quite that loose and yup- you guessed it- the mirror instantly cracked. I contacted Basset Company to see if I could get a replacement drawer and am still waiting to hear from them. I'm just sick about it since they are only 3 months old and now one is already broken despite my being pretty careful when I was trying to tighten it. This is the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. It's a bit too delicate.
I am thrilled. I was surprised at the amount of storage. I was frustrated about the time it took to arrive, but the wait was worth it. It is actually prettier than I expected, and is a compliment to my new bedroom suit. [...] In the end a real cost savings from prices at local stores. I will be buying other pieces!
