Treasures by Shabby Chic Set of 3 Mercury Glass Votives
These are not glass, they are plastic. QVC has a reputation for quality control, I hope it is not going downhill. Please check out this item for yourselves, you will see that they are, without question, plastic. I am so disappointed and am sending them back.
Shabby chic is the perfect name! Love these! They are great in my garden window reflecting sunlight during the day and beautiful at night with flame less candles!
pretty accent votives
Very pleased with these votives. Pretty when lit as well as unlit. Have them sitting atop a small cabinet. They look delicate, soft and add a little glamour. Would recommend.
Shabby not chic
Looks and feels like plastic, not glass. Just not a good quality item . Sent back right away. So diappointed. Had them on my wish list for a long time.
These are delicate and shiny and well worth the money. Love 'em.
A bit disappointed
I kept these, but they were not worth the money at all. Very pretty but made out of cheap looking plastic.
LOVELY and ELEGANT!!!
I almost never write reviews as my free time is very limited. However, I felt the need to comment given the bad reviews these votives have received from others. After reading them I was almost convinced by them not to make this purchase. I watched the very first Shabby Chic show that aired and really wanted at least one set of these. Since they were pricey with the s&h added in (that's why I gave only 4 stars and not 5), I decided to wait until I had more spending money and made a mental note to buy them as soon as I could afford. I thought about them for months. Then one day, they appeared in a quick flash on screen as a lunchtime special at a greatly reduced price. I could not get to my phone fast enough and ordered 3 sets. Then I went online and read the reviews which almost made me cancel my order. So glad I didn't
All 3 sets arrived in great condition and they are LOVELY!!! Yes, THEY ARE GLASS, not plastic. A very thin glass however but the fact they are thin & delicate and not thick & cluncky is what makes them so beautiful. They are just the right size. The silvering is very pretty on them and they are in no way cheap-looking. They are delicate, lovely, and very classy. They hold my candle impressions battery operated votives with a perfect fit. I like them best when not lit however because that is when the silver finish is most eye-catching. I will admit that the original price for these with s&h was steep since I wanted more than one set, which is why I did not buy them when first presented. The lunchtime special price though was a steal for items this lovely & unusual. They will go with most any decor, are very dressy little treasures, and my nine will stay out in my home 90% of the time. Great on mantel, in bookcase, or down the center of a dining table. CLASSY AND ELEGANT. IF YOU CAN AFFORD, BUY MORE THAN ONE SET.
Haven't been this displeased with a QVC item in a long time. These are very flimsy & the rhinestone things stuck on the front are cheap-looking. I just bought a mercury glass votive for $3.50 that was much better quality. I didn't buy more because I knew these were on the way. Big mistake, these are going back.
VERY CUTE CUTE!!!
I just recieved these votives and they are so cute!!!!!!,I have them on a shelf in my bathroom and they give me the look i wanted at an afordable price Thank you so much Rachael,and please bring us more SHABBY CHIC!!!!!!
just got them and they are beautiful!!!
Totally ignore the crazy reviews about these being plastic....which made me crazy.
They are glass and 2 times maybe 2 and a half times larger than most votive holders.
They are really gorgeous...the glass has a pleated pattern like a cupcake holder.
The mercury pattern is rich looking. They aren't as delicate as others wrote....a little fragile
but lovely. Rachel Ashwell did great...unlike one person wrote. I was just at TJMax and they had large clumsy thick ones. These are very nice....don't hesitate to get these.
I also bought the table with 1 drawer and cabinet. Very very nice!!!!
Terrific visual accent!
I am going to order more of these Glass Votives. Any where you put these
they lend a small mark of elegance. You can place these in any room.
I placed a min battery flame inside them the glow from this wonderful glass
is so stylish & warm. I would NOT use candles.
The new ones I am now getting will go on my alter
next to my Buddha.
First let me clear the air...these votives are indeed glass, extremely delicate! I would NOT use traditional votive candles in these votives, I use tea lights and/or battery operated tea lights. You'll still get the same effect! To clean the wax out of these I fear would damage the glass. When lit these are absolutely beautiful! I use them in the bathroom, the powder room, put them on the mantle (great for Christmas). No Shabby-ness about these beauties. I ordered 2 sets and they arrived safely, unbroken. But I can see how they might get damaged during shipping. Personally, I think QVC could of secured the inner boxes a bit more so they don't "shift" during the journey. These would make lovely gifts for anyone!
