Antique Barovier Salviati Venetian Seahorse & Dragon Figural Glass Card Holder For Sale
Ive never seen another example like this. Extremely unusual as it has a dragon form stem, and I think seahorse at the head of the bowl as shown. The glass is gold dusted amethyst and clear, and in excellent condition so far as I can tell. This is about 9 1/4" tall and 4 3/8" long across top. Stellar piece.....there is some cloudiness in the head of the seahorse from being freeblown and added separately.....see photos, but I have seen that many times. About 100 years old, and I would say by A Barovier or Salviati. Insurance always included in shipping. The numbers and letters,if visible in photos, are inventory numbers and do come off with cloth and windex. Listings may end at any time without a offer, and are only considered sold with a offer.
1. U.S. shipping is shipped 98% of the time same day! I ship priority mail mostly on 3 pound packages or less, 1st class on 12oz or less,and Parcel Post on the rest....rarely I use FedEx.I also try to offer parcel post and priority shipping options, but if you need anything else please request and I am happy to accomodate. All items that sell for over 499.99 usd must be signed for, which is a small extra charge and may require an upgrade in shipping regardless of what the calculator may say. Please ask if there are any questions.
2. International customers I am now shipping most packages via International Priority air or EMS due to abuse of the 1st class air system, and changes in postal services. I CAN AND WILL SHIP BY FEDEX IF YOU NEED IT FASTER(so then dont punish me for high cost shipping...I dont set the rates!)....REMEMBER I SHIP WITHIN 24 HOURSVIRTUALLY ALLOF THE TIME! All items of value over 100 USD require priority air shipping now(due to excessive losses through 1st class air) and some countries there are special requirements for higher value items and all items over 500 USD require EMS shipping(regardless of what 's shipping calculator may say). Italy, Israel, Russia, Mexico, Brazil, Turkey and former Soviet states, and any other country that I cannot insure through USPS Priority air require EMS or Express/FEDEX shipping and requires a special shipping quote. Items of especially high value to international destinations may require FedEx international shipping. If in doubt do not hesitate to email me.
Some countries may require actual postal tracking which is priority air or EMS if paid via paypal...countries are Mexico, Russia, Israel, Brazil, Turkey, former Soviet states, and any other country I cannot insure via USPS priority shipping(this means my insurer will not insure, so I have to include tracking). I quote 1st class air for Europe, Australia,and most Asian countries....if in doubt please ask. does not allow me to do country specific quotes on the listing, but I am happy to give them. The shipping to your country may be higher(if it is quoted via 1st class air in the listing) as I have to pay extra to ship priority air or EMS.
