An Antique Hallmarked Victorian Silver Horse Shoe Hunting Brooch, H And C 1880 For Sale
A very attractive antique Victorian hallmarked silver sweetheart brooch in the form of a horse shoe, with raised "nail" heads.
The piece is hallmarked for 1880, with a makers mark of "H and C" and the Birmingham assay mark too.
The horse shoe was a symbol of good luck and often exchanged by friends or sweethearts. This particular brooch is quite classic in its design , so works equally well in a more contemporary setting.
This fastens with a pin and "C" clasp on the reverse, which works fine.
The brooch is in very good condition overall for a piece of this age. There is a small amount of light tarnish.
It is a nice wearable size, measuring 1.4 inches (3.1 cm) across.
Ideal as a gift for anyone interested in horses, hunting, or as a very special wedding or anniversary gift etc., or to add to your collection.
PLEASE NOTE: I do
not take offers for items unless a “Best Offer” button is included on the
listings, or include free postage, and I am afraid that I will not reply to
such requests, due to the quantity being received.
NOTE REGARDING POSTAGE: Postage is calculated by weight and size of the packed
item. Royal Mail are still the best value option in most cases for smaller items.
Please read the information below regarding postage for a better understanding
of how we estimate postage rates. I do not make profit from postal charges,
and will refund any significant difference after posting, if appropriate.
We often photograph our items in an appropriate setting to give more of an idea of how they might look when displayed. The actual item for sale will be the main item in the photograph and, unless otherwise stated, the sale is for the item described only (i.e. not inclusive of any background items used in the pictures)
PAYMENT: Paypal for overseas buyers please. UK buyers also may use a cheque drawn on a UK bank or send a postal order. Please send payment within seven days of sale or listing end, or if you are likely to be away etc. please contact me to let me know. PLEASE NOTE: Due to an increase in unpaid items, I will open an unpaid item case if payment is not received, or contact made within a maximum of two weeks from date of purchase.
POSTAGE: Our postage charges are estimated to the best of our ability before the item is packed for shipping based on actual Royal Mail price charts. Therefore, if the actual shipping charge should prove to be significantly less, we will refund the difference in postage back to you via Paypal. We always use Signed For or Insured services (unless you choose otherwise on smaller value items). Although these do cost a little more, they offer better service and protection for items, so are worth the extra cost in case of any problems.
I will combine postage for multiple items, provided they can be safely packed together.
The Worldwide postage quoted applies to most destinations, however, European countries are often cheaper, so please ask for the postage cost to your European destination if you want further clarification.
NON UK buyers: In theory we are happy to ship most items overseas, but those which are large and/or heavy can be very expensive via UK shipping channels. If you wish to offer from overseas and do not see a postage price for your destination in the listing, please contact us and we will send a shipping estimate. Items are priced for postage by Volumetric Weight: height x width x length.
Please also note that your local customs office may levy an import duty, which you will need to pay to receive your item.
CONDITION: We try to describe any specific flaws accurately, but as all the items we sell are antique or vintage, they will show some signs of wear and tear.
DESCRIPTION: We try to describe all items accurately and measurements as closely as possible. If you do need more information then please contact us via the “Contact Seller” page and we will reply as quickly as possible.
RETURNS: If you have any problems or concerns once you have received your item, please also contact us and, again, we will respond as quickly as we can.
We want all buyers to be happy with their items and comply with the distance selling regulations. Equally, if the item is not as described, or arrives damaged, please contact us.
In the (fortunately) rare event that an item arrives damaged: With claims for damaged items, the carrier will want to see evidence of damage, so please keep all packaging and the item itself. Please take photographs of these if at all possible, as these will aid a claim.
However, we are a small business and returns do cost us money. If you request to return an item for other than the reasons above, we may ask you to pay the return postage charges.
We try to use recycled but quality packaging wherever possible, in order to help reduce waste and to keep costs to you down.
Thank you for your interest in our items!
