Rated 5 out of 5 by Danish Sunshine Beautiful as the Original
After purchasing the original mosaic sphere and enjoying it, as well as having neighbors comment on its beautiful, transitioning colors seen through the window and across the street from their home, I decided to try purchasing a second, but the "as is" version as a special gift. It is as impeccable and well made as the original for which I got to pay more money. This positive shopping experience with "as is" items has made me feel encouraged to try it again in future, next time I need an extra-special something and don't want to pay full price.

I was optimistic when I purchased this because I've purchased the *as is* lit candle holder pedestals and they were great, but this sphere - ugh. It's bad. The workmanship is poor, the mortar is sloppy, covering parts of the tiles and when lit, looks dark and muddy. Some of the tiles are clear on the back - the entire thing is just a dreadful. I tried to move it around and find an angle in which it looked passable, but there IS no such angle. No matter how it's displayed, it's ugly and looks pitiful alongside my other sphere. So sad about this. Back it goes.
Rated 5 out of 5 by EVAH Pretty lit and unlit!
During day it's a beautiful reflective pearl color and at night whatever color I want illuminates my cabinets! I will order more...and probably the new trees too :). Received this "as is" and was in all original packaging and good condition. The remote is fuzzy sometimes but once I push "reset" it's fine.
