If you have a wood burning stove, this is a must to have. A cast iron hen or chicken with open vents all over the lid for the steam or potpourri to fill the room. The lid is molded in two parts and put together, leaving openings for ventilation. The bottom that holds the water is 3 1/2" tall and 9 1/2" long, including handles with an overall height of 7 1/4". Really cute and brand new in box.Payment is due within 3 days. Thanks for looking.
