Frequently Asked Questions
Do you own a porcupine farm?
I do not. The "quills" are handmade from hardwood and painted to mimic real quills.
Are the quills real?
They are made of wood to look real.
Please explain the different color options.
1) Ivory-Tip: quills have blackish-brown rings that taper to golden brown at the edges; the frame is black with gold accent border 2) White-Tip: quills have black rings (no brown); the frame is black with silver accent border 3) Gold-Tip: quills are white with gold tips; the frame is white with gold accent border
The listing says 31” Porcupine Quill Mirror. Is that the overall diameter or just the glass?
It is the overall diameter. The short description in the listing has most of the pertinent information regarding specs.
Do you ship internationally?
I do not. Unfortunately the cost of overseas shipping often exceeds the cost of the mirrors themselves.
I need 8 mirrors. Do you wholesale and can you provide that many?
I can make as many as you need. However based on the amount of time it takes to put these together in relation to the price, there isn't any room for a mark down.
I would like a matching pair of mirrors. Can you combine shipping?
It is slightly less expensive to ship two mirrors separately than to try to ship two mirrors in the same crate, based on size and weight. Additionally there is much less chance of shipping damage when mirrors are shipped in individual crates. Shipping them separately is the way to go.
You say the quills are made of wood, but how do you know, really ?
Before I shape, steam-bend, sand, prime, re-sand, paint and seal, the quills begin as hardwood dowels. I am 100% sure.
How strong are the needles? I am concerned about my children breaking them off.
The hardwood quills are quite strong but the porcupine mirrors are meant to be decorative only and most likely would not fare well in the hands of children.
What is the warranty on your mirrors?
The mirrors ship securely in a substantial wood crate and will arrive in perfect condition. Because there are no moving parts to wear out and the mirrors are meant to be decorative only I do not offer warranties against any future damage.
Could you make a mirror with genuine porcupine quills?
Yes. Contact me for details.
Do you have any advice for me before I place my order?
Yes. Please pull measurements to make sure the mirror you are ordering is the correct size for your space. The listing description has all the pertinent information about glass size and overall diameter.
