I love how wonderful these look in any room displaying the appopraiate accoutrements,. on the the sun porch with plants, in the kitchen with fruits or veggies, the bath room with soaps and hand towels or the great room with candles or books. This is polished brass, 26" high,24" wide. The dishes lift off the arms. The balance can be locked in by the finial at the top. I would take this apart for shipping. It would make a smaller package so less expense.
