I purchased this for a friend and I was quite pleased.
Except... it is resin composite. Which in and of itself looks quite handsome. It, however will have a problem with accidents. This came in fine condition as it is packed well.
I also purchased another style. That one despite the packaging, had a chip out of the side of the base. I know christianbook.com would replace it. I had bought it as a gift and the time for giving was then. I simply used a black roller pen and returned it back to black from the grey composite material within, telling the recipient, explaining it was special now. However, the scripture plate seems a bit, shall I say worn looking on both. It also seems that the bases appear more spectacular than the portrayed depiction. But, I love both of them. And for the price, compared to what they would cost, if they were of the quality of the implied appearance, is quite a deal.
When gift came, the chair was broken, but the best part was the service I received when I reported the issue. A replacement was expedited and arrived the next day so that the Pastor Christmas gift was available in time. I can not be more happy. Great Way to run a business.
This was purchased as a gift. It arrived broken as others have also noted. The chair is a weak point in the figurine. It also appeared to have been packed incorrectly. Customer service was great and it was quickly replaced. The new one had been packed correctly and was in perfect condition. It was a beautiful gift for our pastor.
The figurine was a gift for a gentleman in Canada. He was very moved, loved the gift. But the chair was broken, the rungs of the chair were in four pieces. He, being an artisan, refuses to send it back. Says he can fix it himself so the difference will not be seen. He loves it, I was just disappointed that it was broken.
