There's some paint missing from the front of the bowl of this fountain along with a few rust spots - it gives it great character and originality! It has a nice rusty edging around the rim of the bowl and parts of the back splash. The entire wall fountain has a wonderful soft grey and beige with various undertones to it with crackled, chipped and rusty patina which gives it a rare look and lot's of character! The inside of this one is not porcelain and is also grey. The backsplash has streaks on it, probably from cardboard or something.It could probably come off with some aggressive scrubbing but we left it. It's not perfect but then if it were perfect it wouldn't look like an antique!! I think it's perfect just the way it is - imperfect!! This is a unique piece and will make a great addition to your decor! You will experience this but this is normal and goes with the territory of an old item like this. Please look at the pictures carefully as they are a part of our description. This measures approximately 28" H x 17.5" W (at bowl) x 10.5 D and it weighs approximately 30-35 lbs. It's cast iron with a porcelain finish not aluminum like the newer (not old) and much lighter ones!! This is the real deal! Note: These cast iron porcelain wall fountains are getting harder to find.
