The waste basket is made of a thick material and has a folded over cuff style at the top. It has normal wear, paint variations, and scratches commensurate with age and use. There is missing gold leaf coloring in multiple places. PLEASE see pictures since I consider them part of the description. We are a smoke free home!
I also have other Florentine gold gilt items listed so check out my other auctions! I'm happy to answer any questions or provide more pictures upon request. This used to be a rare occurrence but is now happening far too often. I appreciate your understanding in this matter.
