I have a love hate relationship with this piece. I really like the red gum ball machine. However, i hate the blue one. The shading on the red machine (both the base and the actual gum balls) looks very smooth and accurate. I also really like the placement of the highlights and the classic color scheme. The blue machine is the exact opposite. I am not a big fan of the color scheme and the proportions are very off. The bottom part of the machine only holds four gum balls verses the red machine which holds more than six. The actual globe part isn't very circular and the highlights are placed weirdly. However, i do like the shading on the base. Overall, if the blue machine didn't exist i would really like this piece.
