    That is a beauty. How old is it etc? Do you know its history? Love it.

    That is fabulous!! I wouldn't have to "find" the perfect place for it in my sewing room, I've already got one. I'd be glad to give it a home. Hee Hee!!! What a great friend to share such a unique gift. You are blessed to count her as a friend. I know you will enjoy it more because SHE gave it to you.

    All he said was he got it at an auction a few years back and that it was a store display
