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

    I see nothing glazed. What am I missing.? thank you


  3. potomacker says:

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


  4. Brian Lowery says:

    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.


  5. Tim Caveny says:

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


  6. Tim Caveny says:

    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.

    Obviously has been listening to too much Van Morrison!
