On Sale Antique Art Nouveau Sterling Silver Shoe Horn W/ Repousse Female Figure:
&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;div style="text-decoration:none" height="27px" valign="middle" face="arial" This is a lovely & beautiful ANTIQUE ART NOUVEAU PERIOD STERLING SILVER SHOEHORN with a REPOUSSE FEMALE FIGURE or WOMAN or LADY wearing a draped dress. The measurements are as follows: English = 8.25" long; Metric = 21 cm long.
This is a unique & highly collectible Antique shoehorn.
The shoehorn is made of sterling silver with a woman or female figure in the repousse (3d) design. The horn itself is made of what is now known as a type of stainless steel. This shoehorn is in great condition, however, there is a small scratch on one side of the horn (see photos). The crack is not all the way through. I cannot tell who made this shoehorn because the stamp has apparently been worn down. It also appears that there may have been some minor repairs made to the neck of this shoehorn where the horn meets the sterling silver top. The stamp certifying this as sterling silver (sterling) is apparent on both sides near the neck where the top figure meets the horn. The horn also has some worn areas near the top and some minor warping & pitting near the very bottom (it appears that this horn was actually used).
DOMESTIC SHIPPING is via Priority Mail or Parcel Post - however, I usually ship USPS Priority Mail because it gets there in two days and it costs almost the same as Parcel Post! I mail the items via USPS Priority Mail, which takes two days; however, if you need the item sooner, such as if you need its protection immediately, then please pay for USPS Express overnight mail. Please notify me of this before you pay so I can modify the Invoice accordingly.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: please use calculator to determine your shipping costs, or contact me. I will not ship internationally without a tracking number, and the only way to get a tracking number via USPS is to mail the item either Express Mail, which is very expensive, or via First Class + Registered Mail. First Class mail is relatively inexpensive and is based on weight and country of destination and Registered Mail is always $12.25 regardless of the country. I have added this Registered Mail charge in as a handling charge for Int'l order only. I suggest that you choose the option of sending it via USPS Int'l 1st Class Mail + Registered Mail. (Int'l 1st Class is inexpensive).
I strive to save the buyer money for postage; I buy on too, and I want my items shipped securely but as inexpensive as possible. Therefore, I will try to ship it as reasonably as possible, and I always put the amount of postage on the label. If you pay more for shipping than it actually cost, it is my policy to refund the difference to you, even if it is only 30 cents, for example. I'm not trying to make money off of shipping, and I don't add on other costs of doing business, such as shipping boxes, bubble wrap, etc. If you know of a way to ship to you in a less expensive manner, please let me know.
