Subject: Shipping Pottery From Italy To US
Leslie, Sarah and I have bought pottery in Deruta three times. The people we met would all pack and ship it, but it was very expensive (I think it would have added 50-100% to the price). Instead, we had them pack it really well, then make a handle for the two cardboard boxes. We then carried this everywhere, including on the plane back with us. A little heavy, but very easy to manage and very safe. We never used a suitcase, and I would prefer to have the store do the packing. We have always loved our dinnerware. Ed in San Miguel
