I really like this piece. It's exactly as described and pictured. I love the leaves--they aren't latex but aren't silk either. They are very realistic and the way they lay is very realistic as well. The plant is a great size and of course it looks great with the cottage stoneware. I got it to go with those two pieces and I'm so glad I did. It's a great contrast with the earthy plant and the distressed but still kind of "dressy" stoneware. For this price, this plant is a sure win from Interior Delights!
