Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.
Bought the spiiter at least 15 years ago from Toscano. We get remarks on the spitter from every guest. The cost was 750.00. The cost now is much more reasonable. The statue has weathered a bit but looks more like the original @ Notre Dame Catherdral in Paris. The casting is very light and can be moved easily. My brother really liked the spitter and since he donated one of his kidneys to me this summer, I am purchasing one for him for his garden.This casting is excellent.
