They will be listed over the next few weeks, so if this is the kind of thing that you like, an eye kept on our listings for a while might be beneficital. A lovely set of Eight Matched Peking Glass Snuff Bottles with hand painted enamel overlays. The tops are of Jade, the stoppers are cork and the spoons of Bone. They have pictures of people in various poses to the fronts, and, to the reverse, floral pictures, some with birds.
The bottles are all in fine condition, some have snuff residue inside, but they have seen very little actual use, and have been safely stored away for decades. They have lovely'Qianlong' marks to the bases - made in the style of, rather than in the period.... These date to the early 20th Century. The bottles stands 68mm tall, not including the stopper, and are 55mm wide and 27mm deep. A lovely set - and so nice to have a set complete.
We are currently emptying attics and sheds where the family has hoarded for decades, so some interesting stuff is turning up - with quite a few vintage but unused items amongst the treasures. So, if this is the sort of thing you are interested in, it might be worth keeping an eye on the listings for a while...... Will be carefully packed to foil the postmen.
Most customers are great, even when things go wrong, as they sometimes will. Our Feedback is good, especially considering that most of the things we sell are delicate breakable vintage items. I post daily, unless the car breaks down or we're flooded, or the mice running this computer escape from their little wheel, or I have a terrible hangover from celebrating with Krug Champagne our latest e bay sale, or something. All our prices are in Pounds Sterling, the currency used on our small island.NOT dollars, Moon Tokens or little Glass Beads. We live in a house heated by log fires.......... Yes, I know that sounds stroppy, but its either make this clear at the beginning or lose the will to live........... If you don't, and the item goes missing, I'll send you the proof of posting so that you can make a claim from the post office. But don't rely on this.
We will only post to ITALY on an INTERNATIONAL SIGNED FOR service - far to much goes missing otherwise. The post office will not insure delicate items........... It is your responsibility to read the listing properly. Will, funnily enough, probably not look as if they were made yesterday.
Our Vintage and Antique items will have age related wear. We will detail any damage, or serious wear - we will also let you know if the item is, in fact, in mint condition. We would like paying for items you have bought, this is the usual arrangement between buyers and sellers...........
If you can't do that for any good reason, let us know....... Please, we don't bite, much.
Tell you it is Gold when it is Brass, Get the maker wrong i. E Wedgewood instead of Marks and Spencers or something similar. Post Office Exorbitant Price Hike...........
Whilst you might think that four out of five on the dsr ratings if you bother to fill them in......... I never do I must admit is good, e bay don't think the same way.
