Unit price  per 

Japanese Bonsai Planter used temporarily for special occasions, given the solid metal inner lining worn with a an excellent patina. 

The outer textured wood casing displays an extreme case of shipworm distress resulting a "cork-like" feel and attractive character unlike typical cases of decayed wood. Propped with hand-carved cabriole legs and paired with the original boxing. This truly one-of-a-kind work of art would make for a wonderful centerpiece.
