I have been entrusted with several antique items from a long kept religious collection. They are antique and while in wonderful museum condition. Have not been restored as that would de-value them to collectors. This piece is hand carved in polished mother of pearl, creating a holy water font.It is mounted in hand gilded worked brass. Gilt has been lost here and there due to use/age but the mother of pearl is perfect.
I have not'cleaned' it to avoid damage. Please feel free to ask any questions at all.If you have trouble just contact me I don't panic over payments as. We all have financial upheavals, just let me know. I combine post charging only the cost for one item in total. By Australia Post after it leaves me & they CAN occasionally have infuriating delays. PLEASE dont punish me for their error in feedback. International can take up to 6 weeks as the pkg.
Passes through at least 7 centers. If you are worried contact me! If ANYTHING seems amiss or even disapointing PLEASE contact me before.& I ultimately believe shopping should only be a positive experience! Silversmiths/wholesalers in England and America & I have been in the jewellery business. For 24 years retailing modern and antique jewellery. I do it all, listing, photographing, sourcing, posting, packing, messages etc. I source unused packing (brand new) materials from huge companies who want to simply.
But you may note another company on an envelope etc. This way the packing is not only free but recycled. I photograph in a photo booth lit evenly with a daylight photographic light strip.I don't alter the photos in any way and try to show any/every fault. As I strive to be as honest as possible and as you will recieve the item. Please note different monitors are set at different saturations, hues and temperatures.
