The item I purchased - a bronze torchere - came waxed and in perfect condition. Mr Wells is competent, helpful and handled a challenging delivery to full satisfaction. 5 stars well earned. Thank you.

I was nervous about buying antiquities remotely - but during pandemic, I could not view in person from across the ocean. Nicholas deftly managed FaceTime, photos, and other tech - and then arranged seamless exactly-as-promised trans-Atlantic shipping of an object even more beautiful in person than online.
