The only reason i would not urge all of my friends to buy this is that it seems very unique and I want to keep it that way. :). At Christmas time I used this for a large ice bucket and glasses-- it is very solid and can hold anything. Because it is "antiqued" copper, it doesn't require any polish and is not glaring [because it is large...] I got compliments from everyone because it looks Old World quality. OK. I'll admit it-- I now keep it out at all times to hold vases of flowers etc on my ottoman. This was a wonderful find.
