So happy I bought this!

By 

from durham, pa

Comments about The Philosopher:

Wanted this for a while, so happy to finally have it in my home. My lving room has a lot of what 'they' call tomato red which has orange tones to it, I bought this piece for a different spot, but when he arrived, his 'red' base is the exact match in my living room - a happy accident and now one of the focal points - fun, funky and happy!

      Comments about The Philosopher:

      Everything about "The Philosopher" is delightful! He rests peacefully atop Tim Wells "Jester" table and is the first thing you see when you enter my home.

      Better in 'person' than in pictures!

      Comments about The Philosopher:

      The reds are beautiful, and the piece comes across as good if not better than in the photos. I couldn't be more pleased.

      As charming in "person" as in pictures.

      Comments about The Philosopher:

      Shirt base is a bit more "clear red" than I expected. I thought it would be a rosier red; but it still works. We are using him in our office where he always gets a smile.
