This is a very rare antique passed down from grandfather before passing away to the owner. It was hand carved by an artist in Italy and given to the grandfather. This piece is in great condition other than on minor chip in the underglass of the top-presumably when it was trying to be removed at some point. There are s few little white paint spots which could not be taken off for fear of ruining it. These do not take from the beauty of this piece. Its is said to be very rare and priceless, perhaps hand crafted at mid century after WWII. This was determined in an estimate from a proclaimed expert. I do not know the name of the artist, but am still researching it. It is estimated to sell at auction for up to $8000.00 I am asking less than half of this. Pick up is offered and delivery for a small extra fee.
