It has a nickel plated finish and not painted. There are traces of light rust starting. It comes with the original lifter, skillet, sauce pot, dutch oven, coal scuttle. Included are a couple additional pots that were not purchased with it but are cute. I did not wash any of the stove or parts.

The oven door does work and has a embossed design of the man in the moon face in a sliver of a moon along with a six pointed star with a embossed word Crescent. The ash and grate doors are faux. The bottom, front has beautiful detailed embossing. As well as the warming shelf and side hearth.

I know what pendant I am wearing to my 8th-grade reunion! Back in junior high in the rural edge of a mid-sized farming community, we learned square dancing during PE. Here in the hometown of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard country includes the dosey doe in school. With that background, this pendant makes me smile. I was so happy to find it here on Etsy. The seller provided prompt shipping of a well-protected item in a plastic bag inside an organza one. The item is also as described with no unpleasant surprises. In addition, the pendant is of substainal weight and good quality. Therefore, I highly recommend this seller!
