Some info about prices:

How can I offer (as an example) the ref. V 002 at less than half the amount, you would pay in Euro? And that is not even looking at the transport costs per Post ?!? if or when ?!? a parcel arrives ? — I have a good stock from back in the last century, when we were full-time in business. Now I don’t have to re-import at impossible exchange rates. You benefit from that.

Let’s compare overseas prices: one example – V 002 large ball and spire at R 221.– presuming you have friends / family to bring it back to South Africa. It would cost about you about R 500.– to R 560.– If you have to use DHL or FEDEX, you might as well decide against using brass fittings at all. There are cheaper fitting on the market overseas, but the quality from India and other eastern sources is bling. In complete contrast: I came recently across a maker of true period fittings ( mostly for furniture, but not limited to that ) “Optimum Brasses” in England
