To my eye just a gorgeous surface on this old spittoon, the product I believe of losing the entirety of its previously enameled surface, combined with lots of rusting. And the form of it is excellent too. My ideal vision would be to see it filled with fresh cut roses or peonies, but there is a bit of erosion around the bottom rim such that it may leak a bit when filled, so a liner or a smaller vessel set inside would be needed, or fill with dried flowers or grasses instead. Or, just another beautiful sculptural thing for the shelf!
8 1/2" widest diameter x 6 3/4" tall. It might shed a bit of rust when moved around but not a lot. Quite heavy and very sturdy.
