quickly loses it's color
Comments about Product: sent the first one back,received a new one...but that soon faded even after we used car wax on it although it was in the sun for only a few hours a day. I think I'll purchase a glass one now.
stainless steel gazing ball
Comments about Product: Love the gazing ball with the convex reflection of the garden. Wonderful not to worry about shattered glass anymore! The deer can't break this one.
Comments about Product: I bought the red one to attract hummingbirds to my feeders. Don't know if it's the ball but I do have hummingbirds. It's been outside (WI) all spring and summer and hasn't faded. I will be bringing it indoors for winter because of our freezing temperatures.
Comments about Product: The ball faded from blue to silver and it is not in full sun. I returned one for fading and the same thing has happened to his one. Do you have any that will stay blue? I also ordered a silver one so I would like one of them to be blue. I would not recommend to anyone that wanted a gazing other than the silver color. the ball quality is good but the color fades quickly.
Comments about Product: weather resistant ???? It completely faded from blue to silver in 3 weeks. How ridiculous! I sure am disappointed in the product.
Comments about Product: The ball so far has been unbreakable. However, after 1 season the ball discolored. Now it's just silver. Used to be multi colored.
color fades even in shade
Comments about Product: Received the blue ball and stand as a gift. Placed it in the shade and was very happy. BUT within a year, the color came off in whole sections and the ball is so ugly I have taken it down. Very disappointed. I thought Plow and Hearth had good quality products.
Gazing Ball Quickly Fades
Comments about Product: I purchased this two years ago. The Gazing Ball quickly faded the first year from bright red to a dull red yellow. I contacted Plow and Hearth and received an automated reply that they would contact me. I never heard back. I have been a frequent customer and I buy gifts and items for myself several times a year. I am very disappointed in the lack of a reply.
The Column on the other hand is very nice.

Comments about Product: I bought the blue steel gazing ball and it faded to silver... it was always in the shade.. the red was out in the sun and it never faded...
Comments about Product: Have had my gazing ball 1 month, fading & peeling!! Looks terrible, will not buy from you anymore.
wont fool anyone, looks like resin
Comments about Product: sadly, even from a distance, the 12" stand looks fake. it would be too flimsy for our gulf breezes, but i will drill a hole to fill base with sand and hope for the best although i also have concerns re how it will hold up to full sun here in florida. the ball is nice quality but i will need to use clear silicone caulk to keep it in place, as there is no post. i would have gladly paid more for a stone composite base, rather than resin, in this style.
Red Gazing Ball - perfect!!
Comments about Product: I had seen a red gazing ball among red heirloom hollyhocks in Cabria, CA some years ago. I bought the hollyhock seeds and have lovely plants, but couldn't find the ball. I recently found a catalog from 2010, and there it was. Thank you so mluch.
Comments about Product: Used as an ornament for my perennial garden. Purchased in January '13. By April the coloring was coming off. Apparently they are coated with something like cellophane, a very thin film.
After contacting P&H they graciously offered not only to replace the item but took care of the shipping as well. In this case, pleased with the company, not with the product. I'll see how the next one holds up.
the blue is a beauty
Comments about Product: like the blue
Loved it!! Then Disappointed.
Comments about Product: I rec'd a red gazing ball as a Christmas gift 2 years ago. By mid summer the red was fading. Now there is very little color left. I loved having it in the midst of a flower bed. It is sturdy but that doesn't make up for it fading.

Love, my new stainless steel gazing ball
Comments about Product: Looks great in my flower bed. I like that it is stainless steel and won't break if a limb falls or the wind blows it over. We also love the color which is called mystic. Delivery was very fast with no problems.
I wish it came in green!
Comments about Product: I had this gazing ball in blue for years and it stayed beautiful! Unfortunately, someone else thought so, too, because it was stolen out of my yard!
Love the height
Comments about Product: It was a great purchase, I don't buy a lot from the internet. I so prefer to go to the stores and pick up whatever I am looking for but the stores don't carry many or any gazing ball stands. Let alone the one I found on the Plow and Hearth.
Red Stainless Steel Gazing Ball
Comments about Product: I was quite surprised to see how the color faded from a brilliant red to a milky red. Should I have ordered another color?
