I wish you had wrapped the gold part in some film before shipping. There are a couple scratches that are bothering me, but it is still amazingly beautiful.
We appreciate the 5-star review. Those 'scratches' are actually expected and common among all Annieglass products that contain gold or platinum. During the kiln firing process, as the glass heats up, it stretches and slumps to take the shape of the handmade ceramic mold. Since gold and platinum are precious metals, they do not stretch like the glass and may pull apart, creating a crackled effect on the finished glassware. It's what makes each piece of Annieglass unique and beautiful. We hope you understand and continue to enjoy Annieglass for many years to come!
We gave the Mod Cheese Board to a friend for a housewarming gift and she absolutely loves it. I should have bought two so I could keep one for myself—may still do that!

The Art of Imperfection
For those collections with a 24k gold or genuine platinum trim, our artisans’ individual brush strokes, as well as a slightly distressed appearance of the precious metal trims are testament to our handcrafted glassware process. These effects are by no means a defect, but rather are intentionally crafted into every unique Annieglass piece to celebrate the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi—in which asymmetry and “imperfection” enhance
