We purchased these from a Massachusetts estate. They obviously have been well cared for and kept in Excellent Condition. I would love to know the translation, but appreciate how the artist was able to use letters and symbols as an art form. I love the brushed gold in seemingly random places, but actually really enhancing the pieces.
