if a little bit of water goes on it it rusts your fireplace.
i bought it last year if a little bit of water falls on it it starts to rust the fireplace is rusted where the bear was.
We love it!!
Very attractively finished item. Good size - easy to fill while sitting on top of my gas stove - don't have to fill it as often as a smaller one. Only problem - why is the enamel not totally encasing the lid - often get some rust leaching in to the water.
