Condition Report

Usually 18th Century Chargers need some restoration in case the owner prefers a perfect plate.After restoration chips will be invisible. For me, I never restored this plate as I appreciate it’s actual condition. The Charger has no crack’s at all, only several very small chips around the edge and 2 chips on the backside, which are 0,5 cm each.

Price of the Charger is € 1.500. Restoration can be done on request and will be € 250.
