I love the idea that a perfectly good and in fact rather lovely (though dated, I'm sure, as far as those homeowners were concerned) fixture, to say nothing of the chunk of brass that went into it, will continue to be appreciated and have a useful life. Who knows that is buried in landfills because people couldn't be bothered to recycle?

Okay. Off my soap box. I just had a request from someone to drop the shipping charge by $30 on the other one, then he might bid. I explained in excruciating detail how I arrived at the shipping cost and how he in fact may reproduce this number and find that I'm actually subsidizing by not charging for the box and packing materials (it seems so high to me that I made this choice, but I'll be damned if I'll let a cheapskate suggest that I'm gouging!)
