    While the shape and general appearance of this piece is wonderful, there are 2 caveats: the verdigris is way too bright of a green to appear 'natural', and do NOT pick it up by the handle. If you do, the handle will 'dislodge'(mine did) and the rest of the container will fall. I decided to keep it due to the things I do like about it: the shape, and the intricacy of the carvings.
