The Planter by itself without the JADE Tree would be collectible. measuring from the top rail, the Planter is 5-1/2 inches wide by 4 inches deep and 2-1/4 inches high. Even the ROCKS in the planter at thhe base of the Tree are semi-precious stones. This Brass and Jade Planter then sits onto a fitted rosewood stand.
