Hidden Treasure

I found this wonderful piece yesterday and it was in awful condition. Someone had taken hot pink and peach paint and covered it. It was horrible! I just new under all that paint there was a treasure! I took my chances on purchasing it not knowing if I would be able to remove the paint without damaging the piece and I also was hoping it had a finish underneath that could be salvaged, a patina that would preserve its original intent if not something better. I am very happy with how it turned out. The pink and peach paint must have been water based  because I was able to remove most of it and find this great old patina under it. It took me only about an hour and now I have a wonderful piece to sell at the Sac Antique Faire this weekend, as I stated in the previous post we are in space M22 on Sunday. My items are not usually this regal but I just couldn't resist the challenge and I just know someone is going to be very excited to find it, it is a beautiful piece!~Jacque
