Is it up-side-down? There must be a smilie to go here, but which one? I am being serious, the lighting looks wrong and the wire is at the bottom.

Yes, the photo is upside down, and not too concerned with lighting as long as I have figured how to upload.
Thanks Richard, hope all is well with you and I intent to pop in once I'm over visiting my mom.

Thank you Tim, the finish is metal leaf, toned and glazed with my own formulas.
