Those who follow my sales and have bought from me over the years know that I have always had a policy of shipping within 24 hours of a sale (see my response), however, there are times when I am out of town unexpectedly for a house call, an sale or an estate call and it simply is not possible to get to the post office in time. Also, if you find that there is more than one item you are interested in offerding on over a given time period and would like to take advantage of combined shipping, please again, DO NOT pay me until the last of those items you're watching has finished. I will then send you an invoice with an adjusted shipping fee which saves on postage.. I never charge a "handling fee". I would rather wait a few days on a payment and extend you the advantage of lower shipping fees than to be paid immediately - not ship - and then be scored negatively by for not shipping soon enough.Offered in this sale is a large finely carved and molded French terracotta bust of who I believe to be a young Mozart. It has an impressed initials on the inside of the base and well as an impressed mark that read Made In France. My guess is that this dates to the early 1900s. It is a big piece that measures 16 1/2" tall x 9 1/2" wide and weighs more the 8 1/2 pounds. The detail is quite good. Notice the circular buttons or beads along the edge of the collar. I sold this piece a month ago, however, the buyer never paid so I am re-offering it. The condition is outstanding. There are absolutely no chips, cracks, flakes, hairlines or restoration. I have carefully examined the entire cuff of the collar and can confirm that all of the little circles are free of any damage. Please feel free to email with any questions. I always guarantee everything that I sell to be as described. This piece is being sold WITHOUT A RESERVE as long as there is an opening offer.
