All our items are vintage/antiques and most have had decades of use. A buyer of vintage objects should assume a baseline of wear. I am always honest and clear in my descriptions and always endeavor to point out any flaws to avoid disappointment but I cannot disclose every minute sign of use on our items as it would be impossible to do so. You should assume these are present unless we specify otherwise here at the beginning of the condition report.
Please do not hesitate to request additional photographs should you wish to inspect the item in more detail before purchasing it or if you have any questions at all that are not answered in my description. I normally respond to enquiries very quickly.
