The rim does have a beautiful polished shine but unfortunately it does show some signs of ware. But to me, the polished shine on the handle and the sparkle from the glass on the rim over rides the wear. I took close ups of the rim and handle.
I took as many photos as I could if you are interested Id like to send more photos of the rim and handle. Its hard to see with the reflections. Photo 12 is a very clear shot of the wear but it really doesnt show that much. All in All it is an outstanding piece. Absolutely no scratches dings cracks or chips to the glass.If you see any spots it is a reflection of something. 1/2 silver tone rim and a 4 silver tone handle. 6 X 4 3/4 bucket It6 tall. No chips or damage to the glass excellent condition no damage.
