              This is NOT the chrome vase pictured on the Uncommon Goods website!!! They sent me the WHITE vase instead!!! I am SO upset about this purchase!!! I looked for this Harry Allen product online and found two versions: white and chrome. I could have purchased the white vase elsewhere for $30 less than I paid at Uncommon Goods, but I wanted the chrome vase so I ordered it from Uncommon Goods. When I called to ask why they sent the white vase instead of the chrome vase, they couldn't explain it. This item will definitely be going back!!!

                    Comments about BRUSH VASE:

                    I splurged on myself when I purchased this. I am constantly drawn to unique functional designs--kitchenware, travel products, electronics, etc. This vase fell into that category and now sits on a shelf in my office/ studio---when not in use, however!
                    I will have to hide it away when my daughter, who majors in Industrial Design at college, comes home or she will take it....

                          I bought this for my mother for Mother's Day. She is an artist and went abolutely bonkers over this gift. She could not get over its beauty and creativity. To this day (6 weeks later) she is STILL talking about how beautiful and unique this vase is.
