This product has great features
I ordered this sculpture for a Christmas gift and I just don't know if it will meet the person's expectations or not, I love the statue itself but the coloring certainly does not meet my expections nor does it look like the picture in the catalog. We looked through the catalog together and the statue is absolutely gorgeous and what she has wanted for some time know but when the statue arrived unlike the picture in the catalog that looks white or has a definite white cast the statue I received has a definite gray coloration and it is a medium to darker toned gray even. The lady is beautiful but I just don't know about the coloring and to me it really doesn't look like the picture in the catalog. I have always been happy with anything I have gotten from Toscana and will order again and will still tell people about your products, but I would caution them aobut the larger statues and tell them that they should probably contact you all and ask questions before placing a large order, I know that this is what I will be doing from now on. I am not necessarily unhappy customer but not sure on this item that I am totally happy either.

Actually, very nice is a little mild. This was a present and it went over super. We named her "Sophia" and she will likely stay indoors until spring. Then she will be at the entrance to our main garden standing on a short plinth.

over all great purchase
This was my first garden statue purchase. Wow it adds a lot to my flower bed!
Looking out my kitchen window and seeing her gives me so much pleasure.
I have sprayed her with a clear coat of paint spray I hope this keeps her from fading and chipping

This is a lovely addition to any garden
I really love the look of this statue in my garden. She has now graced it for almost 4 years and still looks very nice. You do have to be sure to put away these pieces in the winter because they can not handle the freeze.
My mom liked mine so much that after she tried to get me to give her mine and I wouldn't give it up I bought her one.

Perfect gift item to help bring the outdoors in!
Ordered this beautiful, and we do personally feel it is absolutely beautiful, statue for my sister who has a living room with a garden feel to it (with plants, a water fountain, little birdie and a frog sculpture, etc.) and it was exactly what we needed to finish off the look. After reading a previous review, I wasn't expecting the detail to be as nice as it is, and to us, it does look like stone! Design Toscano customer service had great communication, and shipping was fast and the handling was great (right to the apt. # door of a large, tall apartment complex). We feel that the item is as described and couldn't be more pleased with this purchase - you won't be disappointed with the item or the service. This statue was on sale at the time of purchase and we also received an additional 20% off for being new customers. So we really are Happy, Happy, Happy! Thanks, Toscano!

Love this Statue!
This unusual, graceful statue lends a quiet elegance to our eclectic -- leaning toward classic -- back yard. She is fairly good-size, but the Rococo plinth, we have ordered, will arrive today, adding height and even more prominence to her lovely statement.

What does "stone finish" mean if it doesn't look like stone?
When I read the description of the product before I bought it, it said that it is made with designer resin and "enhanced with a beautiful stone finish". So I expected it to look like stone. Well, when it arrived, it looked exactly like plastic. I contacted the customer service dept. about this and the answer was: "it was JUST enhanced with stone finish and it won't look like stone".
Now I am wondering what the "beautiful stone finish" means. To me it is very misleading description.

I love this design!!! Wish the detailed quality could be better because I put it indoor. It would be fine for outdoor. It is a good size. Would be even better if it was bigger. I'm glad that I've bought a 20" tall plinth to go with it. Otherwise, it would have been too short for my house. I put it at the corner of my grand-piano room where I could see it from 40+ feet away in another room. Perfectly beautiful and elegant! The real statue color is actually better, not as warm as the picture shown. It was more neutral.
I'd definitely recommend this company and will buy things from them again.
