"I collect mercury glass, usually in silver, so when I saw this little green guy I had to take the plunge! BUT he is far from little, in fact, he's pretty huge, which is a great thing to me! Makes the price point that much more worth it. It is sized for the mini candles, but the medium candle fits perfectly as well, just use care when inserting. As to the reviews about it being so fragile, all mercury glass is fragile and thin...trust me, I have antique pieces as well as newer ones, even a lamp. It is crafted beautifully, it's like an art object, and no fear of breaking during shipping...it's wrapped up like it's going to the moon! BTW, I had always been afraid of owls since I was a child, I know, weird, so I also purchased him to try to get over my phobia...and it worked!!! LOL...I love him!"

"I was worried that I wouldn't receive this item in one piece. But it was very well packaged, and I am so impressed at how cute it is! It really looks beautiful when lit. If you like the picture, then I think you'll be very pleased with this little guy. This is a very fragile item though so, find a safe place for it right away. I'm very pleased with my purchase and would definitely recommend this item!"

Review 3 for 1.3 oz. Mini Candle Luminary - Green Mercury Glass Owl
"This holder is beautiful! The color is gorgeous and exactly as pictured on (my) screen. It's really large and a good price. However, handle carefully-the glass is extremely thin, like almost eggshell thin! I feel like if it gets bumped or dropped it's going to break without a doubt. It almost feels like you are going to break it just by picking it up. Find a safe place for this one and don't move it!"
