This is an interesting ornament it’s pretty and well made but too large for my 10-foot tree; I think it will look good in some other Christmas motif e.g., mantel garland. I love the velvet-ribbon stripes that encircle the globe, and the colors of both the ribbon and the glass are nicely muted and subtle. The quality is very good.

Amazing ornaments! I ordered 2 of these - was not quite sure where I was going to place these until they arrived. I have 2 huge cherubs that are silver and gold color made in Italy. They are mirror images of each other. I have them laying on their sides on either side of a world globe bar/caddy. Directly behind each of the cherubs - I placed one of these flocked gazing balls. So beautiful. Honestly - these should be priced much higher - I really think that Victorian Trading Company gave us all a real deal on these. I see similar ornaments for much more - but these have so much more character with the flocking. So these exact I have never seen before. I'm really tempted to order a few more....as back ups - LOL - Thank you VTC!

This was a stunning gazing ball for my Christmas tree. It is larger perfect for the bottom of the tree and very stunning in size and presentation. It would be beautiful in pale blue, lavender, and mint green stripes, as well. Very nice weight and great price.

Very festive ornament that will be placed atop a curio cabinetduring the Holiday Season. At6 wide I would not put it on the Christmas Tree!
