Customer Question
I have an time given...
I have an time given to my parents probably about 1973 by the priest of our Episcopal church in Red Bank NJ. He was soon to retire and was very close to my parents. I do not remember the conversation well, but I do recall something about it being made form the mold (or something like that) of the stomach of a lamb (or similar animal) It is hollow, vase like. There is a mold of a young girl standing on the outside looking around the side of the vase. If I remember correctly it has a religious theme - and I think I remember him saying it could be quite valuable. it is made of a metal. It is quite heavy. It is quite special to me as Father Best was very good to my family and a very special person to all in our church. I am very curious about it. I hope you can help me. I could take a picture of it and send to you. Thank you for your help.
