1950's Vintage Capodimonte Guiseppe Cappe Figurine Grotesque Violinist #140 For Sale
This is one of several vintage Capodimonte figures we currently have listed. They came from a local estate that had 100's of these, many duplicates. These are probably the most fragile items we have had to ship, so they will be double boxed.
We are selling this one unwrapped as it was packaged many years ago, that should make it ship much safer. The last photos are the item you are offerding on, the first photos are of what it will look like, as we said we have many duplicates of the same figures.
This figure measures about 9" high and includes the original box, cheap cardboard with a small label that reads Made In Italy and the item number. The items are wrapped in strips of a tissue type paper, then packed in a straw material, which was wet to form a tight package, and why some of the boxes are water class="MsoNormal" style="background-color: white; background-position: initial initial; background-repeat: initial initial;">

SHIPPING INFO: Specific packing requests need to be made before we pack the
morning after the sale.Before we send an invoice we like to check Fed Ex and USPS
regional rates to see if we can save some money that way - not all available
choices show in the shipping calculator provides.Until an
item is packed and weighed after the sale we are only estimating shipping
costs. A reasonable fee is added to the exact shipping for all
sales,this fee is based on and goes towards the insurance (all
items are insured thru a third party insurer), and handling.
If a package is lost or arrives damaged our insurance requires the
buyer to sign a claim statement. Do not throw out the original box or packing
materials. It not likely it will need to
be inspected but just in case! We only ship to the address that is on the
PayPal payment, and it needs to be confirmed or verified. Somepackages are not scanned along
the way, that does not mean your package was not shipped. Items
shippedmedia mailthat are rejected by the post
office on the buyers end may require the buyer to pay additional shipping for
parcel post. Since you would have had to pay that anyway if we had used
parcel post,the additional expense is not our responsibility and will not
be reimbursed. Use of media mail for magazines or catalogs is at your own
risk so parcel post is recommended for those items.
COMBINED SHIPPING:We combine shipping whenever possible. Sometimes the savings is
substantial, sometimes it is not much at all because the box got bigger and
that affected the rates.Some items can’t be combined safely, or the box size is gets too
big and/or too heavy. On occasion
invoices have not been correct for combined shipping, if it shows free that is
most definitely not the case, when we offer free shipping it will show that in
the actual sale.

merchandise. The sale sold price is the only amount that
