Battenburg-Trimmed Angel Ornaments
They were absolutely beautiful! Everyone I gave them to raved about them. They thought I had made them, because they looked so nice. Good quality for the money. I'm sure you will love them as I do.

I bought these angels to give to family members of patients that passed away in our hospital. When I received them they were packaged tightly in little plastic bags, making them extremely wrinkled. Some of them even had torn wings. Also, there were two different types of material used to make these angels, one was a very sturdy cloth like material while the other was a ragged thin burlap type. I'm very dissapointed with the quality of these angels. I will not be giving these out to family members as they look very cheap and are of poor quality.

Good value but wrinkled
I purchased these ornaments because they are beautiful as presented in the catalog. However, when they arrived, they were all squeezed so tightly into the bag that they were badly wrinkled and each one required ironing by hand. I ordered six dozen to give as party favors for our church's seniors holiday luncheon. It took me over an hour to iron all of these ornaments so that they would be acceptable to use, so unless you have an extra hour and an iron, I would not recommend them. In spite of liking these ornaments, I will not order them again for my church group, as I do not have the time to iron each one.

I bought these to use as gifts. The problem is with the wings which can not be ironed so that the wings are anything except crumpled and will not lay out flat

Worst Battenburg-Trimmed Angel Ornaments ever!
I have purchase Battenburg Lace Angels as a tradition to give to friends and business associates with their Christmas Cards for the last 15 Years. My normal source was out of stock so I was delighted to find them at Oriental Trading Company. However, I was utterly disappointed when I received them. Of the 156 (13 dozen) I received, I could not use 15 because they had a yellow brown glue staining the fabric and the remaining 141 were so waded up that I had to iron them before puting them in the Christmas Cards. Many were also poorly sewn and ragged. They were a terrible disappointment.

worst item ever purchases
we were so looking forward to getting these angels, were very disappointed when they arrived. the dresses were wrinkled and twisted, the wings were folded and twisted, in short they should have been shipped flat in a box not shoved in a bad.

These ornaments looked dirty and limp. I might try to wash and starch them but will only use them as gift wrapping accessories.

not what I expected
I wanted to add to my collection of Battenberg Angels this Christmas..went online and these looked like what I have. They were just terrible. They looked like a bunch of crinkled up handkerchiefs in a small plastic bags. The ones I have are very stiff and well made. Very poor craftmanship. At some point, according to other reviews, they were made like the ones I have. Not sure where to find those. This company was very
gracious about returning the ones I ordered.

Worst Purchase Ever
The Battenburg-Trimmed Angel Ornaments were the poorest quality item that I have ever ordered on line from any company. In fact, if this had been my first online order, I would have been discouraged from ever ordering online again. The ornaments were crudely assembled and arrived all squished together and crumpled in a small plastic bag. I am trying to decide how I can salvage them before Christmas, e.g. ironing each one individually, because it is too late to look for an alternative.

Very beautiful for Decorating
I am not a person who does crafts and everyone thought I had made these pretty angles. The battenburg lace gave them a flair of nostalgia. My tree was done with all Oriental Trade items and it looked beautiful. Like something out of a magazine or something your grandmother's would have looked like. To me anything home made looks better than the ugly balls and ornaments you see in the store. That is why everyone liked my tree. It looked authentic I was very pleased with all the angels I ordered and will order more next year for gifts and to put on packages instead of bows.
