Steaming Tender Restaurant 24-K gold plated over brass Ornament!

We are so excited to launch our first – limited edition ornament series. Our inspiration stemmed from our family visit to the Biltmore Estate. The Vanderbilt family is a true inspiration for us as they preserved the historic estate and we are here to do the same with the former Palmer Union Station.

Ornaments will come in a custom gold box with velvet interior for the price of $25. Flat shipping rate of $7.
