The recent actions of a few dishonest ers mean I need to set some ground rules. Please note that we ship within 5 working days after receiving payment, we are often away from home sourcing antiques midweek and simply cannot post next day. Our sales end on a sunday and we ship thursday or friday as most buyers have paid by then although some take longer, we do however expect payment within 3 days where possible especially if we haven’t done business before. We ONLY ship by insured trackable airmail, please do not ask us to ship by any other cheaper method at your own risk, I’ve recently learnt that at your own risk means you will try and claim your money back after you’ve received your item unless I can prove delivery. We will usually try and combine shipping costs where possible for international post this means up to a limit of 2kg packed weight which is the limit for international parcels after which items go by courier which is far more expensive. We spend a lot of money every month on proper packing materials, we recover some of these costs through our postage charges as allowed by however we pack and handle for free. Asian buyers please note that we no longer negotiate shipping prices after sales have ended and we no longer give part refunds, if you are not happy with your purchase you’ll need to return it at your own cost and for this reason we show close up zoomable pictures of every item. Please examine them carefully and base your offers on what you see as it is impossible to describe every aspect of an antique item, patina is best shown in pictures. Thank you for reading.
