TESTIMONIAL OF JUNE 2011
Please use the quote from me as you wish:
Thank you for sending the helmet I purchased from you so quickly. It arrived the other day and I am very happy with it- it is beautiful! Thank you also for packing it so carefully, i was concerned it could get damaged in the post. Ishall look forward to making more purchases from you in the future.
"Yes", you have my permission to reprint/forward/duplicate any and all of my emails to you without needing to ask me each time.
I have been VERY PLEASED with the 3 items that I have purchased from you during July-August 2010: (1) the "Pious Fish" (a very well-made, heavy-metal, bronze-artwork, fish-figurine that Shia Muslims used during their commemoration of "Ashura" and the martyrdom of their Imam Hussain -- this is a truly remarkable, religious item that belongs in a serious cultural museum.); (2) the "Lilal Helmet" an Indo-Persian helmet with the very scarce 'Lilal' or crescent-moon/star atop the helmet -- which is surprisingly very heavy (would very well protect the head during battle) and which has nicely engraved Arabic-text protection-blessing prayers -- one of the better helmets that I have seen offered; and (3) the "Lilal Shield", which is a larger-than-usual size, heavy (indicating good sound quality -- not a cheap, light-weight, 'tinny' just-for-the-tourist item), with incredibly detailed "hand-chiseling" of Arabic text [whereby the metal surrounding the letters was 'beaten down' to all the text to appear 'up raised'] in numerous places atop the shield, and for images it has 4 very detailed "Lilal" or 'crescent-moon with star' designs atop the shield, [all of this hand chiseling of letters and artwork indicates a very long and arduous work -- not something that was easily 'mass-produced' just for the tourist trade].
I am MOST PLEASED with your quick email replies to my inquiries about these items, and your FINE PACKAGING of ensuring that a lot of wrapping materials were used to protect these items during shipment.
I look forward in making future purchases from you.
