Rated 3 out of 5 by Laurel Sloppy painting mars great item
This would have been a very beautiful piece except that the "hand painting" looks to have been done by children. Paint is slopped over it's edges making the item look cheap on close inspection. Up on wall behind a sofa or something might be fine as you wouldn't notice the detail so much. It's still a lovely piece, but it's a pity that sloppiness and poor workmanship made this less than it should be. I would have liked to have done the painting myself. I may see if I can remove the paint and give it a go myself. Returning it from Canada is such a hastle with no guarantee that the new one would be any better painted.
