This item is part of our “un-restored” collection. Our antiques arrive from Europe in warehouse condition. Before shipping or leaving our store, they all go through our professional workshop to assure they are strong, clean, ready for use and with an appropriate finish. Upon restoration, this item will be re-listed with multiple photos including close ups of the finish. You are welcome to call us directly if you would like to learn more about this or other items, we will be happy to assist you further.
