The title “Pottery Barn” to us has always been a misnomer. This is not a craft shop with clay pot and kiln, high eaves, and a hay loft. Pottery Barn today is clearly upscale and with a price point better defined as upper middle class and higher. If you are looking for quality and well-made goods the price is insignificant for things that last a lifetime; and Pottery Barn we think, aims for that.
Today we’re examining bathroom accessories and accoutrements of everyday use that we received to examine.

First, the Celeste shower curtain (in small letters not caps). A substantial piece, it is rich in linen, 55%, and cotton, 45%, giving it weight, unlike most flimsy shower curtains made from a polyester or poly-blend. The buttonholes are finished well and you should have no problem hanging it. The design is a cottage chic print, something you will not tire of. Make sure to pick up a liner, and an inexpensive one will do.

The Holden metal and glass soap dish, toothbrush holder, small clear canister, large clear canister and soap pump are quality made. The glass is similar to hand-blown, as evidenced by the bubbles within the crystal and it has a weighty feel and is nice in the hand. The silver lids and trim rings are sparkling and appear to be tarnish-free. All-in-all this set is classic and glamorous--something you would expect to see at the finest hotel.
Everything was packaged with care and delivery should be spot-on. In short, Pottery Barn is a class company and if you haven’t frequented them in a while, a trip back to their site should be in order--no matter your needs.
