SAVE Small Business

Please take a look at this important issue. It will affect many small businesses of handmade goods as well as the people who love to buy all that is handmade.

old world floor registers

these old world custom floor registers were created for Grand Traditions Homes in Barrington, Illionois.  we sculpted the model out of clay and wood and then had them sand cast out of red brass (bronze).  we created four different sizes of the design to accommodate the home.  the registers have an antique finish.
