Much nicer than I expected it to be. It's a glazed ceramic. Nice weight. smooth finish, not too heavy, not too 'delicate' (like you're afraid you might break it).
I order several items from this collection: (2) jars (pictured here); tissue holder, toothbrush holder. My 2nd bathroom upstairs is about half the size of a regular bath with a shower stall and these are JUST PERFECT!! They are a bit smaller in design. Not miniature, but not big and bulky if you don't have a lot of surface space on the vanity.
I read carefully the reviews on some of the other pieces in this collection and after having received these vanity items, I would be inclined to agree that the bath mat and towels, while lovely, may not be such a wise purchase for higher traffic areas or heavier use. I could easily see how the 'circle dot' designs might start unraveling.
I do, however, highly recommend the countertop set and tissue holder. I really LOVE THEM. I just came back to order the soap dish and lotion dispense
