Rated 5 out of 5 by PamIam This product looks like a hand-carved, wooden plaque. I love it!
Packaging and shipping was "white-glove". I received my order within 3 days after ordering, and that was without any additional shipping costs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by happyshoppr Beautiful textured wall hanging!
I love this piece. It looks great on my bedroom wall between 2 windows. Only drawback is that you can't hang it with a wire so exact measurement and placement is critical :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by g8ful1 Excellent product, I highly recommend!
I had my eye on this for a several months and it was well worth the wait! Delivered in less than a week. Looks great over a buffet in my dining room. I purchased the cream plaque and love the attention to detail. Photos do not do this product justice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SLOgirl Did not care for the color
I have several Ballard wall pieces and have always been very happy with them and received several compliments. I was very anxious to receive this plaque, I ordered the light with a little bit of gold. Unfortunately, there is a lot more gold than described and it ended up looking gaudy and tacky so now I must go through the process of packing it up and shipping it back. The quality is good, but beware of the gold finish. It is overbearing.

Amazing, instant glamor. Love the showiness and size of the wall accent. Fills the space over double door entry perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandma03 This product is outstanding!
I purchased the Grande Bouquet Plaque for my dining room wall. I bought it in the off white with gold accents color. It looks magnificent in the room. My walls are a dark green color and the plaque just completes the room. The quality is outstanding and it looks like it cost a lot more than the price I paid. Once again, I am very impressed with a product I purchased from Ballard Designs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FirstLove Grande Bouquet is exquisitely detailed
Truly a one-of-a-kind type piece. It is a grand scale so be sure you take measurements. It is a focal point in my livingroom. The relief work of acanthus leaves, flowers and vase give such rich 3D detail. It looks like hand-carved antique wood. So substantial looking, yet very light and hangs easily. Packaged well and arrived undamaged. I loved it at the original price. Well worth it, but at this sale price.... it is Irresistible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by shabbychicgirl More beautiful in person!!!
I had wanted this plaque forever and waited and waited for it to go on sale...it never did so a few months ago I finally just bought it and hung it over my bed. It is absolutely gorgeous and worth every penny I paid for it! I just got the new BD catalog yesterday and saw it is now on sale (darn!)...do NOT hesitate to buy this because at the original price it was a great buy but now at the $169 price...well, you would be crazy to not jump on this. You will not regret it.

I ordered the brown color and it looks beautiful in my bedroom that has a lot of browns. It hangs above an antique chest of drawers. The old world style is very attractive and romantic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Designerguy What a deal !!!
I was browsing through the Ballard's Backroom in Roswell,GA yesterday and stumbled across a whole rack of these beautiful wall plaques. I fell in love.... I bought a couple of them for different areas of the house. For $49 how could you not ?

Very nice looking.
Goes well in our LR over the fireplace.

by Got2Get1 STUNNING!!!
After much deliberation, I finally bought this plaque in cream. It is perfect above my king bed! The size is perfect and the color...WOW is it gorgeous!! Aged cream with matte gold leaf accenting the crevices and raised areas. So French! It looks like it would weigh at least 100 pounds but it is very light weight, probably less than 10 pounds or so. I wish I hadn't waited so long to buy this, it is stunning and everyone that sees it wants to know where I got it. Don't hesitate, it's amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by brusselsgriffon BUY THIS!!!!
I had been looking at this for almost a year and put off getting it because of the price. No joke it got to my house in four days!! Shipping was so fast and it was well worth every penny. This plaque looks like real carved wood and is one of my most favorite pieces in my whole home. You wont find a piece like this for the price anywhere else. Very easy to hang and looks so elegant above our fireplace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvElegance Fabulous piece.
This fabulous plaque in cream and gold is even more beautiful than pictured. I am overjoyed with my purchase in every way. It looks far more expensive than it is. The gold tones on the three-dimensional work in cream are delicate, yet clearly evident. The cream tones are warm. I recently redecorated a room in white with cream colored accents and this piece truly makes the room. It is a grand size but not overwhelming. My friends cannot believe the price for such magnificent work of art. I recommend it whole-heartedly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SavyShopper55 Cream with gold accents, perfect focal point above fireplace!
We love it! We mounted ours above the fireplace mantle. It looks fabulous! It came very well protected in the packaging and was easy to install since it's made of a lighter material, but looks like wood. My husband has his large tv on another wall in the living room and this was the perfect piece to bring attention back to the fireplace area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dragonflyplayer You will NOT be disappointed......
I needed an uplifting, impressive but not overwhelming piece for the space above my fireplace. This is perfect. Although it is floral, it is not 'over the top' feminine; my 'manly man' husband loves it, too. I mixed and matched a few other cream with gold touch accent pieces and created a lovely vignet. The gold is just the right touch to accent the 'carved' look of the piece. If you've been considering this piece..you will NOT be disappointed. Magnificent.

Bought this for guest bedroom. It is much lighter than it looks, which is nice for hanging. It looks pretty big in the room over a queen bed. Pleased with this Ballard purchase.

by wakele Love it, love it, love it!!!
I love this plaque! It is such a unique wall hanging and is the perfect size to fit just about anywhere, so I know it will always remain a part of my home. We're newlyweds and still filling our home so right now the plaque is above our couch to fill space. One day I hope to move it behind a buffet or side table or over our bed. There are so many spots for it to work. I was worried about the weight of it since we have pretty thin walls (my husband is military and we live on base) but it's actually pretty lightweight - we used standard anchors to hang in from. The plaque is exactly as shown - just perfect!!

by EmHem Exactly What I Was Looking For
I've had my eye on this plaque for awhile and wished I had purchased it sooner. The size is perfect over a king size bed, and the zinc goes well with the steely blue-grey and white colors in the master bedroom (see attached photo). I was delightfully surprised to find that the plaque has a slight egg-shell sheen instead of a chalky matte finish as it seems to appear in the photo. This might prove to be helpful when cleaning/dusting.

I was not pleased with the presentation of the item once I hung it on the wall in my dining room. I did receive positive comments regarding the plaque.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Danna Unique and simple wallhanging
Lightweight, so you don't have to worry about it falling off the wall, but looks weighty. If you are looking for something different, this is it! Very pleased with it!
