I ordered the 16" planter in pink with silver finish. It arrived in just a few days. The color is perfect and it's awesomely MCM with my Mother-In-Law Tongue planted in it. With that said, I'm reasonably certain the whole thing probably cost less than twenty dollars to manufacture. Very overpriced for what you get. Reply: Oh how we wish! Hip Haven reply: Oh, how we wish it were that inexpensive to produce! We would make so many beautiful things in match-molded fiberglass! Unfortunately, it is a costly and rare manufacturing method, but we think it's worth it for authenticity. We are very happy you like the item though, and rest assured, it's the real deal! Reply: Oh how we wish that were true! Unfortunately compression-molded fiberglass is a dying art, difficult to do well, and very expensive. Powder coated, 3/8 inch gauge welded wire stands are similarly expensive and both parts have tripled in cost to make in the last decade. We're sorry to hear you found this product overpriced, but happy that you like the look, all the same. Thank you.
