The first thing to say is that we were highly impressed with the quality and care of the packaging, it was outstanding, we have never seen such thoughtful and intelligent design and it surely reflects the quality and detail inherent in your art. The pitcher has arrive in perfect condition, and we are perfectly satisfied with how it looks. I am leaving to my wife to place it but I intend to have a small stand made for it, (my son does fine woodworking and I will have him turn such a plinth). We shall also find a suitable LED battery powered light to place inside because as you pointed out a light inside gleams through the translucent marble and enhances the inlaid semi-precious designs. We had to cut short our Indian vacation about halfway through because of the virus but we intend to return as soon as the self imposed crisis is over and hope to revisit your emporium again.
