2 Primitive Vintage Hand Made Forged Iron Candle Sconces Jointed Expandable
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and shop with another er seller from out of town recently - a real catfish moment, because we’ve talked for years, but never met! No surprises, just all fun and did we shop until we dropped! I have lots of very cool items for you that I will be listing all week. Enjoy!Well, I've definitely never sold a pair of these before! What I have is a pair of vintage and very primitive hand made iron candle sconces - aren't they cool?!? Made to mount on the wall, the necks of the sconces are made of 5 pieces of iron that are hinged together so that they can fold in or out. On the very end, is the candle holder with a drip tray. You can see the hammer marks on the well from the making. The finish is black, and it's rustic and worn to the metal in some spots - especially on the edges. There's two screw holes on the other end for mounting on the wall. When stretched straight, as I have in photo 4, they measure 14 1/2" long, with a candle well that is 7/8" diameter (made to hold tapered candles) and a drip tray that is 2 3/4" diameter. The smallest that I could fold them would make them 5 1/2" from the wall or, you could fold them all the way over to the left or to the right, in which case, they's be the depth of the wall mounting brackets, which is 2 1/2." Each one weighs just under 3/4 lb. They are in excellent solid and sturdy condition. There's very light surface rust in the spots where the finish is worn and the metal is exposed - but that's ot. Love the simple rustic style - I'll bet you've never seen a pair of these either!
Please ask if you have any questions, or feel free to inform me if you have any information about one of my listings. As with any of my items, if you ever need extra pictures, let me know, just make sure that you give me an email address to send them to. Pick up is welcome on all of my items. I’m happy to combine shipments for you, but I do ask that there be no more than 7 days from the purchase of the first item - I will invoice after 7 days, as I cannot hold the items longer than that.
Also, many of my items come from local rural estate sales and sales. They are coming right from the barn or attic to you, dust, cobwebs and all! I do not clean and polish before I sell - they are in the condition found, as you see in my photos - and I leave the patina exactly as it was when I bought the item. I do my best to photo and describe thoroughly.
Please email me before offerding if you do not use Paypal, and we can discuss possible alternatives. Payment is due within 7 business days after close of sale, after that, the sale will be void, and I will relist the item.
I only mail via USPS. I have had some trouble with the shipping calculator giving people bombastic shipping rates (especially after purchase with the “Pay Now“ invoice on Parcel/Standard Select rates). So, if you think it’s too high, email me so that I can check it out, before you pay me. That being said, we pack very well, so that will add to the weight, combined with the constantly increasing shipping charges of the Post Office.
I ship within one business day of receipt of your payment, unless there’s a holiday that closes the post office, or I notify you otherwise.
With postage rates going up and up, I am shipping more items Parcel/Standard Select. Please realize that this can mean a 2-3 week delivery, sometimes longer. As a matter of fact, this year, I’m finding the “longer” more the norm. Parcel Post travels by land or rail and, at least in this area, packages do not leave the regional post office until they fill up a bin going in the same direction (so there’s no estimated exact number of days like you have with Priority Mail - the Post Office says 5-7 days, but that‘s not what I’m finding). I mail right away so it can get to you as soon as possible.
With the exception of the most heavy and/or large items, I will always give both Priority Mail and Parcel Post as shipping options, with Priority being first for my lighter items. Be sure you check out both rates . I will be happy to ship an item in a flat rate Priority mail box, if that is cheaper to you - as long as the item will fit well packed in the box - ask me before you offer if you think that’s the case for you.
INTERNATIONAL AND NON-MAINLAND USA: Shipping costs are available to mainland U.S. only. IF OUTSIDE OF THE MAINLAND USA, PLEASE ASK ME FOR SHIPPING BEFORE offerDING IF NO SHIPPING PRICE IS LISTED. Shipping times vary and I’ve experienced up to 8+ weeks for delivery after I have mailed internationally (and longer if it‘s stopped for inspection). Please keep this in mind when offerding. ALL INTERNATIONAL ITEMS WILL BE SHIPPED PRIORITY MAIL OR EXPRESS MAIL WITH SIGNATURE AT MY DISCRETION, UNLESS PRE-ARRANGED PRIOR TO THE CLOSE OF THE sale WITH ME. Also, import duties, taxes, and country specific charges are not included in the purchase price or the shipping price, AND THEY ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER. Please do not ask me to declare an amount that is different than the purchase price - I will not lie! All international buyers must pay with Paypal, no other payment types are accepted.
Sales tax will be added for Illinois buyers.
Customer satisfaction is extremely important to me. If you receive an item and are not satisfied in any way, please contact me. .…and thanks so much for looking, I appreciate having you as a customer!
