THE TOP RIMS HAVE BEEN GROUND DOWN (CUT DOWN) AS WELL. The wooden bases have some water stains on the tops from usage but those aren't seen when the planters are in place on top of the bases.
The copper liners have no dents or repairs either (they could use some cleaning on the interior though). There are some "palmeye" pops in the glaze on the interior of the planters.
