Words of Advice:

I make every effort to accurately describe all items offered for sale in my shop. If you have any questions on any item don't hesitate to ask. If more pictures are requested I will be happy to provide you with these. As for the Antiques, I can not make any guarantees as to the actual age of any item offered for sale, as opinions are known to vary from one expert to the next. I encourage you to use your own judgment and/or expert advice for dating and valuing items. I strongly advise buyers to read thoroughly and carefully ALL of the item's description and examine pictures with much attention to see the items condition. I provide very clear and accurate pictures with all damages clearly showing. I will not cancel the transaction just because you did not examine both the description and the pictures carefully.
