Comments about Product: This gazing ball looks great in our yard on my existing stand. So far the dogs have not knocked it over, so I can't say if it indestructible or not, but it is very attractive.

Pretty garden object
Comments about Product: This gazing ball is a very pretty shade of blue and a nice size, but there is a somewhat visible seam around it. Quick shipping and the ball looks pretty nestled in the garden. The stand looks like plastic, but I have it mostly hidden by foliage. Overall, it's ok, as long as it holds up over the winter.

Comments about Product: Nice quality without the fear of breaking in the Gulf breeze. Like my Grandma used to have only better.

Blue gazing ball faded badly
Comments about Product: In less than 2 months, this blue gazing ball has faded so badly it now looks gray when you look at it from the street. It looks terribly shabby as if it has been out in the weather for years, instead of just a month and a half. VERY DISAPPOINTED - certainly not worth the money.
gazing ball and stand... outstanding!
Comments about Product: I have this gazing ball and stand in my front garden between the daisies and hydrangeas...it looks nice. I just hope the ball doesn't blow away! It's very light and there is nothing to hold it on the base. I am a bit nervous with all the winds and rains we have been having. It's only been a week, but many people have commented on it. So far...so good!

Color does not last
Comments about Product: I have wanted a gazing ball in my garden for years, but was afraid of the fragile nature of glass. I purchased this steel globe in April and looked forward to enjoying it for many years. However, it is now only July and the entire top half has faded to half the intensity of color that there is on the bottom. I am very disappointed in the quality of this product and I do not consider this item to be inexpensive. I would not recommend using this product outdoors.

Comments about Product: I've had to replace too many glass balls. This one is virtually unbreakable. The price is reasonable compared to the glass ones that are so fragile. I Love the color of the Mystic, they are so beautiful. Highly Recommend!!!!

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.
