• Shipping Information
Domestic Sales: The value displayed in the Shipping section above is a flat rate domestic shipping quote via UPS Ground to the Continental United States only. The rate includes packing materials and insurance costs.
Please note that our shipping charges have changed as of January 2013 due to rate increases by UPS and USPS. In certain cases, shipping charges can be reduced by using USPS Flat Rate boxes. Please contact us before checking out if you are interested in switching services.
International Sales: Please click the Shipping Rate Calculator button above to determine the fixed price international shipping rate for this item.
Please Note: All domestic & international shipping rates offered through the Shipping Rate Calculator are considered quotes only. We reserve the right to adjust the shipping rate of any item if the actual shipping cost (after packing) differs greatly from that quoted by the Shipping Rate Calculator.
Our default domestic shipping method is UPS Ground with Signature Required. Our default international shipping method is USPS Express Mail International (the most reliable and least expensive option providing a tracking number). All amounts listed in the shipping calculator include packing materials and insurance costs. Packing materials may include: box/boxes, bubble wrap, packing foam, biodegradable packing peanuts (made of corn starch), tissue paper, tape, etc.
Our domestic & international shipping rates are based on the size and weight of the item after it has been packed (weight includes 1.0-5.0lbs. for packing materials depending on the dimensions of the item).
Due to the high cost of shipping overseas (which may exceed the cost the item), we ask that international customers do not purchase single items valued below $75 (unless you intend to combine shipping on multiple purchases).
*Our Shipping Rate Calculator is not currently able to calculate the international shipping rates for items which meet any of these criteria: the item is valued over $1500.; the item weighs over 9.0lbs.; the item is considered oversized by USPS (after being packed) or the shipping address is outside of our designated shipping zones. If you are having difficulty with or are unable to use the Shipping Rate Calculator above, please contact us directly for a shipping quote at: 718-438-6444
Items are generally shipped out within 2-5 Business Days from the receipt/ clearing of payment. Items shipped domestically using UPS Ground should arrive in 1-5 business days. Items shipped internationally using UPS Ground should arrive within 2 weeks; however, some packages may take up to 1 month to arrive (due to customs inspections). We will send you an e-mail confirmation (including your tracking number) as soon as your item is shipped.
If you need an item shipped to meet a specific schedule due to an event or traveling plans, please contact us and we will try to accommodate to the best of our ability.
At your request, we can charge your UPS or Fed Ex account; however, we will charge a fee for packing materials.
Due to the value and nature of our inventory we require that all items shipped internationally be mailed using a mail service providing tracking information as well as insurance. As USPS Airmail Parcel Post provides neither tracking numbers nor insurance, we will not ship by this means under any circumstance.
Due to international shipping regulations we are not allowed to designate any item as a "gift" or mark the value of the item less than the actual cost of the item when it was sold at sale. However, at the customers request we will be happy to highlight any item as an "antique" or “"100+ years old" if this is in fact true.
We are happy to combine shipping/packing for customers who purchase multiple items (when possible). For a domestic or international combined shipping quote, please contact:(718) 438-6444.
Customs: International shipments are occasionally held and inspected by Customs officials for a period of time. We are not responsible for covering the shipping costs on any item returned to us by international customs agents.
VAT Taxes/Duties: We cannot anticipate VAT or other foreign duties. If you are an international customer, please be aware that your country may assess import duties/taxes. Any taxes or fees assessed on an item are the sole responsibility of the customer. In the event an item is returned for any reason, we are not responsible for covering these fees.
Returned Packages: We are not responsible for any item returned to us as "undeliverable" if the address provided by the customer matches the address printed on the shipping label. In this event, the customer is required to provide an alternate shipping address and cover the additional shipping costs before the item will be shipped again.
Lost or Damaged Items: Unfortunately, boxes are occasionally lost, damaged or go missing during transit. In the event of loss or item damage, we are required to notify the carrier so that a trace can be started. Following their procedure, the insurance claim can usually be filed no sooner than one (1) month after the carrier has started their trace of the package. The customer will be refunded only after the insurance claim has been completed which may take a few months.

A. Yes, you are welcome to view an item you are interested in purchasing or pick up a piece you have purchased at our office/warehouse in Brooklyn.

Q.What is the provenance of the item?
A. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a clear provenance for each of our items as most of our estate purchases are agreed upon with the stipulation that the family not be named. However, we can say that this piece was purchased from an estate sale in or around Manhattan within the past 30 years.
Q. Are you interested in buying my item(s)?
A. As our business is actually in the process of liquidating a collection of thousands of fine and decorative art objects that have been collected over a few decades, we are not interested in buying any items at this time.
Q. I would like to return a purchase, what is your address?
A. Once you have contacted us in regards to your request for a refund, please have all returns shipped, in the same manner in which item(s) were originally received, to our Brooklyn store at the following address:

Q. Can you appraise an item from my personal collection?
A. As we are not appraisers or experts on your item, I am afraid we cannot be of much help.
