it is BEAUTIFUL!!! In better than expected condition. The patina is beautiful and even. The scratch she mentioned in the item description is tiny. It is sooo clean and smells great. BTW, what a wonderful seller floridaweebie is!! She included a nice note and four Yankee Candles. The package smelled wonderful when I opened it. What a sweetheart!!! I really had no business getting a new bag but this one is so pretty, you can understand why I couldn't resist, right??
