If it doesn't belong in a cottage kitchen, it doesn't belong in your kitchen. With that as our model, we designed our copper planter of 100% copper, with two brass handles. These pieces are all handmade and uniquely designed, you won’t find our products anywhere else! Due to the handmade nature of our products, there may be slight variations and imperfections in some items. We believe this is one of the beautiful things about owning a handmade item. Please keep this in mind and know that these variations are an inherent part of the product and should not be considered a defect.
