I try to describe all the items as accurately and as honestly as possible, and I always include photos or scans of the actual items. Anything major such as cracks chips or major loss of gilding etc will be pointed out in the description and shown on the photos. If you are still unsure as to the condition etc. My items are usually vintage or antique, very rarely new, and condition will sometimes reflect this with minor marks, wear on gilding etc. I do my best to research the item and its history and pass that information on to my customers, you can google items and find the same information I do.
Vintage or pre-owned items will often show some signs of wear due to their age, and there may be something I overlooked. Any condition outside normal vintage wear, like chips or cracks or serious defaults, will be noted. If you require more information, please do not hesitate to message me.
