Condition All of our items are original antique pieces and it is important to keep in mind that many of them have been around for 100 years or more. Individual pieces may have seen many owners and been handled many times over the course of their existence and as a result each piece has developed a history of it's own. Short edge splits (often repaired with archival tape), foxing, discoloration, etc. are all things to expect on items of this type. They rarely distract from the piece and often add to the overall character of the item. Keep in mind when you receive your item that you are not handling a modern copy, you are holding a piece of history, an item that has been around for a very long time and will, with proper care, be around for a long time to come. We try to note any significant flaws in the description, but less noticeable or common characteristics may not be mentioned.
As we are a US based company all of our measurements are in Inches, if you need the size in Centimeters please multiply the supplied measurement by 2.53.
