      Comments about FISHBOWL CLOCK:

      I wish this product could also free stand without any concern rather then just be a wall clock. I placed my fishbowl clock in my son's room on the window sill and it looks kind of real. Its stands fine; however if it had an option to seat on a surface that would be even better.

              It arrived in perfect condition exactly as appears. Quality of wood is good and priced to match. The fish swings as promised and couldn't be happier.

                Comments about FISHBOWL CLOCK:

                Absolutely love the clock and am glad it's a good size, not too small. I love the fish! Makes great conversation for people in my kitchen. Sometimes I just sit and watch the fish swim. I only wish the wood slats in the front were painted to match the blue of the "bowl"; it's a bit un-slightly. It's very simply made, I hope it lasts!

                      Love the design, but the clock mechanism was faulty. The minute hand was bent and fell off almost immediately. I'd love to recommend it, but couldn't as it is now.
