IRON PLANTER
~BeSt Form/PaTiNa~
With Older Quality Pieces like this, it's worth the time to 
PRESERVE Their Naturally time~worn Patina...
I brush a thick coat of clear matte urethane on it,
to "seal-in" the chippy-paint patina...
  Even though this finish is matte, -it takes about 3 weeks
 of outdoor exposure to tone-down...  I do this every year
 to each of my quality outdoor pieces - whose patina is right
where I want it ~ with no further deterioration...
