I had to replace my gazing globe, & I found Kugel House online. Spent much time perusing their stock before seeing the category of "Goof Balls". These are quality 2nds offered at good savings. I called the contact # and spoke to a very helpful & friendly human for guidance. Needed an opaque look, and the cobalt blue is very stunning, with some of the opal in light tones showing through in swirls. The iridized finish makes it quite shiny, and I had to get used to it vs. my old aqua ball. This is 2" larger, nice! I am so happy with the quality of this piece, & you can see the 3 layers of glass from the stem end. There ARE a couple of small blips in the color distribution, so that could bug some folks. The site explains some possible goofs, and goof balls ARE NOT returnable. I was told no cracks or chips, none found. My item arrived fast & so well packaged, in a box with 2 layers of bubble wrap, then that box was surrounded by "cubed" styrofoam inside another box clearly marked "GLASS". I love this place so far! Hope to visit the store up north Ohio in near future. Thanks for stellar product/service!
