Large Round French Galvanized Tub Planter or Fountain with Handles
We love galvanized pieces because of their resistance to rust, as well as their steel grey/blue patina. This tub is a beauty and very utilitarian because of its large size. It’s large enough to place a recirculating pump inside with a flume of water and water plants to hide the pump, or it would make a magnificent centrally-placed planter and can accommodate a profusion of blooms, topiary, or both. You could also use it for parties as a drinks cooler as it has a drain hole in the bottom that is easy to plug with a cork. In very good condition overall, it does have some minor dents commensurate with age and usage. The opposing handles are a real plus, as it makes carrying this piece around the garden a breeze, plus adds a decorative touch.
