These decorative, large canisters have a pleasing form and wonderful presence; both very sturdy with good, solid weight. Will make wonderful accent pieces or flower containers. CONDITION: Some minor surface blemishes, but overall in very good condition. DIMENSIONS: Each 11 3/4" high (30 cm) x 10 3/4" diameter (27.3 cm).
