I try to give the best quality and best service possible. I have many years experience in sending fragile goods through the post and take pride in my packing, my treasures arrive in the same condition they left me.
There may or may not be factory flaws. Quality control was not a factor in the 1800s or early 1900s.Items were not perfect when produced. As with all early glass it may contain the normal inclusions such as seeds, bubbles, cooling marks etc. Just about every lamp and/or lighting fixture that I sell at one time has been in use, they were manufactured for use in extreme conditions and subject to heavy use, these lights have survived! They have already proven their ability to stand the test of time...... This is a measure you simply will not find in ANY new light fixture made today. The originals of what others copy today. Vintage light fixtures increase in value as the supply is diminished. Please review photos for a determination of condition also. I never charge for packing materials or for my time for packing (which is considerable when packing antique lamps & china).
