This was in terrible condition. It was listed as excellent condition, wear consistent with age. However, it was false advertising. It should have said "fair condition." It had the gold worn off. I purchased it to go with another matching cut and it pales in comparison with the other one. Very disappointed.

Thank you for your feedback. Upon review and consideration, we stand behind our evaluation of this original antique item made in Germany between the year 1900 and 1909. The items used for comparison may not have received an authentic professional appraisal and could be a reproduction. The item sold via our Etsy shop was evaluated by a professional appraiser and is over 100 years old. There were no chips or cracks located on the tea cup or saucer. The condition is rated as excellent and the wear found on the item is consistent with use and age. Clear pictures were included in our advertisement to show the true condition of the antique tea cup and saucer. We would like to thank you again for your purchase and hope that we can exceed your expectations as a satisfied customer in the future. Best regards, Kurt Costello
Art Gallery with Bed & Breakfast Located In Historic Philadelphia
In the beginning I was a collector of stamps. My grandfather gave me an antique watch and our family entrusted me with a treasure trove of antique objects. Part of a family of collectors, I live in a home filled with art and antiques inherited from family. Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore furniture. Understandably there are some incredible antiques in a family from the Philadelphia region for over 330 years. Once you enter the Art Gallery, it is obvious that we love to curate beautiful objects for display in our selected exhibits.
Everyone in our family has a true appreciation for family heirlooms and our focus is on preservation and provenance. I was the only son to get the collecting bug, and like most collectors, I started out early. Trunks, suitcases, and boxes sealed for generations, filled with objects that had belonged to our ancestors. Rooting around and unearthing precious items under the house one day, I decided I wanted to be involved with the conservation of antiques in one way or another. I decided to study material culture and after many hours of study...I still have much to learn. I received my certification as a valuation professional and today remain focused on conservation. I find many homes like our own, with art or objects passed down for many generations.
The Art Gallery has been transformed into a Bed and Breakfast with five guest rooms and breakfast served daily. Guests have an opportunity to experience simple luxury and the Historic Philadelphia neighborhood.
Etsy is our online Art Gallery and Boutique for Bread n Butter Antiques - Fine Gifts and Interiors
Etsy is a pleasure to work with and it is amazing to see such beautiful items all in one place. There are many talented artists that it is easy to consider this venture more artistic than entrepreneurial.
I am a collector of material culture with a passion for provenance and photography. The Art Gallery is an alternative space to showcase art and objects. We invite artists to display their artwork along with the art and objects in the collection. The Art Gallery emerges from the perfect historical home to showcase our entire collection. Historically inspired interior design with a modern twist of essential luxury.
The BnB Antiques and Art Gallery is open daily and operates as a full-service bed and breakfast as well as hosting private events, corporate office functions and gallery tours in historical Philadelphia.
