Wine color enamel painted over cast iron, very deep water well with heavy duty/strong screws for larger trees. The package is wearing out so don't think I can say new in package, but it is and never used it. Was hiding from me, and found it when we moved. Bought 20+ years ago. I just opened a corner to get a picture. This should last a life time. Could also use it as a plant stand. Easy to spray paint another colour. Also have this lovely new tree skirt, never used with great workmanship and detail. 49.00, guess I should post it by its self.
