Pair Gunvor Olin -gronqvist Arabia Finland Blue Fructus Plates Scandi Mod Lot #1 For Sale2 things to mention before the description:#1: we have 3 separate listings for this pattern, so should you win more than 1 lot, PLEASE wait until we send you the correct discounted combined shipping total because if you automatically pay the combined invoice they will charge you full cost of shipping for each listing and we can not re-imburse you because they will also charge us the full 9% of that incorrect shipping cost
#2: our listings are set up for USA offerding, however WE WILL ship to CANADA , JAPAN and SCANDINAVIA should you email and ask to be placed on the exemption list ( all buyers outside of USA are blocked , so you have to ask in order for us to unblock you ) the shipping cost given here is for the USA, the shipping cost for other areas will be calculated once the listing is over ...after we wrap the items and take them to the post office for an exact quote
next: the IMAGES came out DARK ....the pattern is alive with colors of blues , purples and raised irridescent copper oxide
with that out of the way you are offerding on TWO vintage mid century Scandinavian Modern 8" plates designed by Gunvor Olin-Gronqvist for Arabia Finland ...the pattern is called blue fructus according to someones site via google, Gunvor Olin-Gronqvist began working for Arabia in the 1950s ....according to that person this pattern predates Valencia ...... I cannot find any documentation to pinpoint a decade ..... if you know and you would be kind enough to share , we will add to the description .... we would guess 1960s ...( again, I said guess)
both plates are in excellent condition with very little sign of age whatsoever ...they may or may not have been used, either way ...they are super and you will be very pleased there are no nicks, no crazing & we cannot find any heavy utensil marks .... I also do NOT see any of what I call "swirl " marks ....which would be signs of dishwasher use in short....(oops too late) .... they are so stunning, they could easily be displayed as art pottery ... hang them on a wall , or place them upright in an open cabinet .... they are worth it !
next thing to mention: even though we have 3 listings for the same size plates, we took all individual pictures for each plate / each listing
so the ones you are looking at now, are the ones you will receive for this listing the glazers initials are EK
buyer pays insured postage FYI: in sold listings, someone from the USA received 49.99 FOR EACH plate in the same size (plus shipping) , and another seller from Finland received 48.00 for EACH plate in the same size (plus shipping) ....our opening offer is less than 22.50 per plate (plus shipping) the other things we must mention : we use the shipping calculator as a close guideline only
the cost will NOT be more than stated, but may be LESS the EXACT cost will be given to you at the end of sale ..once we have a precise shipping address and the item has been completely packaged so
if you remit any form of payment before receiving OUR invoice with the CORRECT shipping from us ( once we have your address and the item is packaged)....then whatever came up with is what you will be charged .... ************ & REMEMBER ....IF YOU WIN MORE THAN ONE LOT, YOU MUST WAIT FOR US TO SEND YOU A REVISED DISCOUNTED COMBINED INVOICE ****************, Thanks! international shipping costs will be DIFFERENT than the cost given here for USA
......................now that has unfairly changed its response policy, sorry but our only recourse is to report non paying buyers on day 6 .... we expect personal contact via the buyer within s policy of 2 days or less folks we are not robots over here, communication means a lot to us ...and is important in all forms of relationships ! THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO ACTUALLY READ THIS .. & READ OUR response as well ...we are 1 of the GOOD GUYS .... At this time WE SHIP TO THE U.S.A ONLY , however on small items ..we do "bend the rules" sometimes, if you email and ask us to !
The LONG and WINDING ROAD of SMALL PRINT sorry to vent here folks but this needs to be said ....for all sellers, not just us
those little stars they ask you click ...well those are important as to our seller "scores" .....and if they are judged unfairly by you ...NOT ONLY do they harm the excellent reputation that we strived so hard to obtain and retain but also .. BASES the SELLERS FINAL FEE COSTS on that system ....including the ones sellers have no power to change
ALSO NOW CHARGES THE SELLER 9 % OF SHIPPING COSTS.....EVEN THOUGH ANY HONEST SELLER DOES NOT MAKE A DIME FROM SHIPPING..... IN FACT...........FIGURE IN PACKAGING SUPPLIES, TIME, GAS and the HONEST SELLER loses a LOT of $$$$$$$$$$$ ...............especially the ones like us .... who sell larger items such as furniture / lighting / etc
we don't "create" shipping costs ..that is done by UPS & USPS
hey ..... if we could afford to offer free shipping we would ....but we already spend between 4 & 5 grand a year just on packing supplies so that your items arrive safely!
so ...... ...... WE ASK YOU PLEASE ...... be honest, be considerate...before you "push those buttons" .... & IF THERE IS A PROBLEM .....CONTACT US...WE WILL WORK IT OUT .... ...our no return policy is not set in stone item not as described??? ...well ....we show 10 - 35 images with giant arrows pointing at any flaws we feel not only need to be mentioned...but also pointed out visually ...... because its only a rare few that actually read the descriptions & small print ....
lack of communication??...won't be from our end ... we are usually here at the computer 7 days a week .....
shipping time?? ..... slow shipping won't be due to laxidaziness on our part .......because my husband wraps and ships packages 5 DAYS A WEEK ..... instead of just once or twice a week like most sellers the rest #1: After the sale: BUYER IS EXPECTED TO MAKE CONTACT WITHIN 2 DAYS OF sales END BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT WITHIN 6 DAYS OF sales END; is our livelihood and we take it very seriously; we ask only that you treat our sales as you would any respectable place of business, and we will do the same for you! #2: SMALL ITEMS WILL BE SHIPPED via USPS INSURED or UPS INSURED, LARGE ITEMS LIKE FURNITURE usually go GREYHOUND PACKAGE or in the case of a large furniture item which we cannot ship ourselves ....
