MD, yep it's a wall hanger.

DD4life, as a wall hanger the owner just want's it to look correct. I've done what you suggested on other antiques with varing amounts of succcess but in this case I agree with the owners request to merely make it look good. If I was to do one nipple I'd end up having to do all of them inorder to get them all to match & the ser#'s don't match on all the pieces so it's just a "frankengun".

Both are done now, here's the pair.

sltm1, I forgot you were fixing it up just for "Looks" for a owner.
You did a lot of work on it. It looks GREAT!  ;)
