This double dish is approx. 9.5 inches by 4.25 inches. It has a hole in the center piece which makes it suitable to hang with two small plants or the hole can be used as a handle. Most of our customers use it for salsa on the table but the original idea was to be used as a hanging planter. It is handcrafted by the Artisans at Ken Edwards and like all Ken Edwards products it is lead free.
