andquot;Lochloy Houseandquot; Fairy Looking Glass Hand Mirror
Unusual and pretty, but quality is lacking
I bought three of the above mirrors because the design is pretty and not something you see every day. Toscano does not usually let me down and I have bought a number of products from them over the years, including some great mirrors. I have always felt that the quality of Toscano products was above reproach. However, this time I have been disappointed.
Whilst these mirrors are designed beautifully, the quality of the actual mirror is not good. The reflected image is "off"/slightly distorted and this spoils an otherwise good design, making it seem cheap. The mirror should be perfect to complement the prettiness of this item. To compound my issues with these mirrors, there was glue seeping out from under the backing of each one, illustrating a careless approach to this potentially great gift.
Toscano refunded my money in full, but I wish things had been different. Perhaps the vendor of this product might consider its faults and get this product up to standard.

This hand mirror was bought as a Christmas gift for our granddaughter, who is a very girly girl. I can hardly wait to give it to her because I know her imagination will go into high gear when she uses the mirror. It's unique design truly looks as if a fairy is holding up the mirror. Very magical.

Buying gifts online...
I bought the Lochloy Fairy Looking Glass Hand Mirror as a gift online with only a picture and description. There is always a chance that a product isn't as nice as it looks or described, but this exceeded my expectations! I had it sent directly to my sister in law for her birthday, so I didn't see it until after she received it. I could tell by her voice when she called to thank me, that it really was something special. After handling it in person, I must say that it is stunning... I could have bought her a bottle of perfume at five times the price of this mirror and it wouldn't have been as good as this. This mirror will become a keepsake for many years to come and I will purchase from Design Toscano again as there are many other unique items that I am interested in. A high quality gift for under $30 is almost impossible to find.
