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.
Stainless Steel Gazing Ball
Comments about Product: I put it in the Garden to attract birds, hopefully. It is close to my new feeders and does attract attention. I like that it is unbreakable, since my last gazing ball broke and I don't like broken glass lying around where my dogs can step on it. It is very pretty and easy to install in the nice metal holder that I also bought!

Does not hold up - re color
Comments about Product: blue gazing ball and stand received as gift 2 years ago. Ball faded during summer and was replaced with a new one. This one has faded in exactly the same way - turns a bronzy color - not at all bright blue. Wondered if other colors react the same way in the sum.
Comments about Product: The ball stand was well made and sturdy with a nice coat of black paint. The cabriole legs with an oval on the Knee made it sturdy and beautiful too.
I have it holding a 14" mosaic ball in the garden.
The only improvement I can suggest is some plastic foam "cushions" to prevent the frame from scratching the ball.
Stainless steel gazing ball stand
Comments about Product: I love the design on this 3 legged stand, very attractive color and I especially like the design in the legs of the stand! Very pretty. nice weight and the height is not too short or not too tall. Thank you Plow and Hearth!
Comments about Product: Entire experience was positive...Fast shipping, nice product...will use Plow and Hearth again!
Loved the set and the price.
Comments about Product: These look great in my flower garden next to the porch. They are colorful, esp in seasons when there are not many flowers. The stainless balls are worry free re: breakage.
Comments about Product: I am very happy with my gazing ball and love the height of the stand. It is a perfect addition to my garden.
Very pretty & sturdy
Comments about Product: I bought this Iron Scroll Stand to hold the 10" Recycled Mouth- Blown Glass Gazing Ball and they are perfect together. This stand is heavy & attractive.
Comments about Product: I just received this so I don't know how weather resistant it is that's why the 4 stars. Otherwise, looks great with my black/gold gazing ball, lightweight but not flimsy and I'm using it on my front lawn. Price was right!!
I would purchase again.
Comments about Product: I purchased the Blue one as a gift for someone else. By the end of the summer one side was faded and the coating was coming off. Maybe they can be sprayed with "Clear Coat".
