Stryker the Smoking Dragon Sculptural Incense Box
It's a good decoration.
I just received mine today, and I am both excited and disappointed. It's truly just as beautiful as the picture.The detail is great, and the pricing is rather good for the amount of detail.
Unfortunately however, there are a few things that are.. Sad. First of all, I have standard incense, and so I didn't order any. I have to cut every single one because this box holds a specific length. That isn't too bad, but there's a few other things... I also didn't realize it's two pieces. I was under the impression it was a hinged jaw, but sadly it's two pieces that you have to carefully put together every single time you burn an incense. The two pieces are also off center, as one side of the mouth will lay perfect, but then the other is crooked. Also, when it arrived, one horn was chipped. The good news about that is that it was a small horn in the back, so I can hide it pretty easily by turning it. I understand that things can't be kept perfectly safe, and I applaud that they packed it tightly in Styrofoam, in a box, in another box.
Over all, it's very pretty and works as intended, it's just easily broken and kinda awkward to use! I do recommend this product if you'd like a really nice dragon head to decorate a room with. Looks fantastic.

Product is just "OK".
I'm sorry to report that the holder for stick incense broke the 2nd time I used it.
That's a big disappointment in the product.

Arrived with chipped tooth
We like the dragon, it looks really good on our bar. It arrived with a chipped tooth. This is the 3rd piece in a row that we've bought from Design Toscano that was either chipped or broken.

The Smoking Dragon is an amazing sculpture
It could be used as a decorative statue or as the Incense Box
it is meant to be. It was a gift for my granddaughter who loves dragons. I loved the look in her eyes when she saw it. It is a beautiful sculpture.

arrived broken, and smoke doesn't come out nose
ours arrived cracked inside the top part, but i don't think this affects the fact that if u light the candle, the smoke just stinks up the room, doesn't come out of the dragon's nostrils to make it look like a fire-breathing dragon. however, the piece comes with a little round candle that sits in the very back of the dragon's throat; perhaps if you used the longer, optional incense sticks, the burning end would be closer to the nose & it would operate as expected. piece is inexpensive & cute, so if you have limited space or really like incense, it would be great for you. just didn't work out for us

This is such a good priced, amazing quality product. I am in love with this! It fits perfectly on my skeleton side table that I got from this website as well and it looks so cool. Just a small piece that adds so much detail to the living room. Makes the house smell good and I like to light the incense just to see my little dragon smoke. Definitely recommend it.

This product has great features.
In the past 15 months I have purchased 16 items. I fell in love with the detail on the first one and was hooked. I have searched other web sites for dragons and I always end up ordering from Design Toscano because I know the quality and detail will not disapoint me. I feel the price on each piece is very reasonable for the quality, and their customer service is as equally impressive. I deal with a lot of customer service departments and most of the time they are extremely aggravating, but when I get off the phone with Design Toscanos customer service I can honestly say I still have a smile on my face because it was that easy. Only one thing left to say, Design Toscano..I need more dragons!!!
