Very old heavy large bronze planter, age patina, we have not polished this piece at all, it has engraved or incised decorations around the piece. possibly Chinese . It measures 12 and 7/8" across on the top, 8 and 1/2" across on the bottom of the base, and is 11 and 1/2" tall. It is in very good structural condition, we see 3 small minor indentations on the sides. There is a cream coloring in the designs. We acquired this from a collector couple that had traveled the world their entire life.
