These were two beautiful antique glass horns of plenty.  Hand painted, they were delicately attached to a base of varnished wood.   Please note the progression of packing shows how wood was used to reinforce the base, and then attachment of the the horn to the base with cable ties.  Further packing included softcell foam surround, boxing, instructions,  and ultimately double boxing.  We specialize in packaging, crating and shipping fragile, high value, unique and antique and art related items.   If you don’t wish to try this yourself.  Give us a call at The Mail Center.
