      A fantastic gift for somebody that is hard to buy for. It is beautiful, bigger than expected and heavy enough that it doesn't feel too fragile.

      I thought it could be used to hang on a tree so was disappointed about that.

          I bought this as a gift for a dear friend's 40th birthday. It is a beautiful, thoughtful gift for someone who "has everything". She was most grateful and said it was a wonderful momento to celebrate her day. It is heavy for it's size but does not appear to be overly fragile.

            Looks even better than it does in the picture. Substantial size. Heavy glass, seems like it will be durbale.

                    I bought this for a friend who collects art glass pieces and already has a couple similar globes. It is going to blend in beautifully with her collection--definitely a high-quality artisan piece.

                        It was beautiful, but I thought that it would be able to hang it on the tree. It would be nice if a stand was sold with it so you could display it properly.

                          I was so impressed by how beautiful these glass globes are. I've given them as gifts to artist friends of mine who work with glass and they loved them.
