Sue struggled to get the pulls to look good in that pic :-[ .... the problem is the overshadowing by the bellying-out top part of the body - and you've got to catch them in the light to bring out the silvery-ness.
It's even harder to capture them on the big bits with the egg-shaped body.

The decor on Alchemy can go a bit wonky too, sometimes almost disappearing completely on the deep purple ones.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Ok well, this is just my personal opinion/observation:
 I thought the pulls in your pic looked good Sue, much better than the pics of the other pieces.
However I also saw one of these today in the flesh, the second one from left in the catalogue picture (it looked liked John's ) - it had two nibbles on the rim otherwise I would have bought it, but my thoughts remain the same..., the pulls were not really that visible at all in the flesh,they were very low on the vase, dark, and in all honesty my opinion is the catalogue pictures are a misrepresentation of what the pieces look like in reality especially in terms of the pulls.  'Aspirational' may be the word.
