      Comments about HAND BLOWN RECYCLED GLASS RECTANGLE VASE:

      I have this sitting in my kitchen window and it looks just lovely. It doesn't even need to have anything in it. Many people complained that it was smaller than expected even though the dimensions are listed in the description. Please read before you buy, folks. I think the size is perfect and the vase is well worth the money.

        Received item broken. Was not very happy with the size for the price.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Dealing with customer service was a little bit of a struggle. Had to make multiple calls to get situation resolved and each time I called a got a different story of how to handle the return.

              I love colored glassware and I had purchased this vase as a gift. But when it arrived, I was quite disappointed by how small the vase was. I estimate that the volume of water this vase could hold is about 1.5 cups. I don't feel that based on the price of this vase - it should be larger.

                Though smaller than I had anticipated, the piece is lovely. I bought it as a gift, and I believe the recipient will love it based on its aesthetic value and the fact that it is made from recycled materials. I definitely don't see it being used for flowers, but it would be handy for storing other items.

                        We bought this thinking it was a vase based on the picture. It's the smallest vase I have ever seen! I didn't even pay attention to the size dimension which was my fault. It's a cool looking piece, but it's use I'm not sure of... It's about the size of a flask!

                        I bought this for a wedding present without really checking the size. It was labeled as a vase. I thought it would hold flowers. Nope. This "vase" is tiny, can hold something about the size of a credit card. Now I have to buy the couple a gift card so they don't think the wedding present is lame.
