This could make a couple different projects or you could re-attach the finial to the top. I unscrewed as it was frozen. You could make a great garden or wall accent with the top. The finial could be used for another fun garden decor too. It has a silver finish which is flaking and has a rust original patina. Cast Iron for the decor piece, the finial parts are metal. Measures approx. 13” length, 10” wide. It has curved sides (which would be great to add a flower arrangement) it curves up 2 1/4”. Lots of pictures to help describe. All for one money.
