I must admit that these incense burners are more beautiful in person! From the crackle glaze on the pot, to the beautiful floral cut-outs on the top, they are gorgeous. Believe it or not, I have bought several of these in various colors and each one is really equally stunning, so my review will be basically the same for each of them. The colors are fabulous and muted, and they look antique, or at least vintage and are a stand out in my room. In the spirit of disclosure, I do burn sticks and so I keep a dish under the burner to catch the ash, but I do not mind. I just pulled out antique saucers to use under to catch the ash. I love these burners so much!!!!!
