    The dealer should have just said “painted” with “double beaded glazing”

    Glazed as in glass panels or as in surface finish? Is ‘astral glazed’ even a valid term in the trade?

    I wonder about the authenticity of the finish. Looks a lot like “shabby chic” finishes you see in second hand stores. Some of the places that show ware are seldom touched.

    You’d think the maker would have aligned the glazing bars with the shelves.

    also, if I were going to change directions (as in the upper molding,) I think I would have done so in the middle of the facade, rather than in that place over on the left side.
