Reliquary W/ Coa - S. Joan. Evang. For Sale
Reliquary w/ COA - S. Joan. Evang.
Tonight's 15 sales are titled "Religious Artifacts #18".
The item(s) pictured are the exact item(s) you are offerding on. I have included a photo with a measuring tape so you can see the size.
I will not be offering a "Buy-it-Now" option and there is price. The sale will proceed to its conclusion.
The wax and thread are completely intact (pictured). The sale includes the relic and the paperwork (COA = Certificate of Authenticity).
Either the relic came wrapped in the paperwork or I am fairly positive that I matched the correct paperwork (from an envelope full of COAs) with the correct relic. Either way, I have a high degree of confidence that the correct relic is matched with the correct paperwork.
The relic is as pictured. The crystal is completely intact.
Where do these religious artifacts come from?:
My Great-Uncle George was a Catholic Priest in Chicago from 1923 (ordained) until his death in 1951. He traveled extensively throughout the world on behalf of the Church, had multiple audiences with the Pope and was pastor of Saint Peter and Paul Church on the south side of Chicago. He left an incredible assortment of religious and non-religious artifacts to his brother, my Grandfather, who stored them in a very large closet where they sat until recently. All of the items that contain this paragraph as part of the listing are obviously older than 1951.
It is now my responsibility to sale these items on .
They are in the exact condition as they were when they were removed from the storage box.
I will do my best to accurately describe each item and answer questions although I am not an expert on antique religious artifacts.
A flat rate of $7 S&H fee applies to this item. Additional items will incur a charge of $4 per item. Depending on the size/weight, I may use USPS First Class, Priority or UPS Ground for shipping.
A flat rate of $15 S&H fee applies to this item. Additional items will incur a charge of $7 per item. Depending on the size/weight, I may use USPS First Class International or USPS Priority International. I am not responsible for VAT or for any national laws that require the package be opened and inspected before you receive them.
Above fees assume items won within a single night's sale and a single payment. Multiple items will likely ship in a single box.
Occasionally winning buyers will disappear and never pay for the item they have won during an sale. From now on I will list those unpaid items, at the winning offer price, as a Fixed-Price-Listing (Buy-It-Now) for 30 days after the cancellation of the original sale. It normally takes about 8-10 days after the original sale’s end to formally cancel the sale. These items will appear in a list of “Seller’s current items”. These listings will be identical to the original listings except they will not be an sale and will last for 30 days (vs. a standard 7-day sale). There will be no particular day or time of the day when these items will appear. The “Fixed-Price Listing” will exist until someone buys the item or 30 days have passed.
Upcoming sales (beginning sale dates, 7-day sales):
Note: Due to dwindling inventory, this will be the final year of these "house" sales. By the end of 2013 my assignment will be complete and everything will be gone. As a result, the weekly sales will become more sporadic (often skipping weeks or even multiple weeks.) Also, the quantity of items within each sale night will probably be less than before.
Wednesday February 13 - Religious Artifacts #18
Wednesday February 20 - Belleek China #9
Wednesday Februry 27 - No sales
Wednesday March 6 - Royal Doulton Character/Toby Mugs #5
I prefer Paypal. If it is necessary to use another form of payment, please contact me before offerding so that we can reach an agreement.
I expect either payment or an email explaining the delay within 4 days of the end of the sale. After 4 days, if I have not received communication, the computer will automatically open an unpaid-buyer case.
I will use a combination of USPS First-Class, USPS Priority and USPS Priority Flat-Rate depending on size/weight and destination. At times, I may also use UPS. If the winning offer (or box for multiple items) is over $100 I will be providing insurance.
I use only new boxes and if the item is breakable it will be wrapped in bubblewrap and then placed in a bed of peanuts.
If an item does arrive damaged, please contact me and save the item and shipping container.
I will accept returns within 14 days. Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs.
I'm part of a process to clean out a very large house that my family has lived in since the 1940s. My responsibilities are conducting the sales.
II will be creating sales on Wednesday nights with 5-20 items per night. sale nights will tend to focus on a specific category of items (see categories below).
I am not an on-line retailer or a consignment seller. All of the items are owned by my family and come from a single house. My goal is to move stuff out as quickly and painlessly as possible even if I have to sacrifice higher prices.
The current categories I am using to organize things are as follows:.
Books (signed, first editions, rare, old)/Newspapers/Magazines
Camera/Photography (old, vintage, antique)- SOLD OUT
China - Le Mieux - SOLD OUT
Germany - SOLD OUT
Great Britain/United Kingdom - SOLD OUT
Horses (statues, etc.) - SOLD OUT
Madonna (Virgin Mary) Statues
Marshall Field's Collectibles
Royal Doulton - SOLD OUT
Royal Worcester - SOLD OUT
Religious Artifacts, Relics and Antiques
Vintage Electric trains (Lionel, American Flyer) - SOLD OUT
Vintage Fishing/Hunting Equipment - SOLD OUT
Wood Statues (hand-carved vintage) - SOLD OUT
World War II
Note: I'm holding on to the coin/currency collections ... at least for now. The antique furniture and artwork are being moved outside of , so it's not my responsibility.
When a category is sold out it will be designated above.
All items are original and authentic. No copies or replicas (unless specifically noted).
I will do my best to describe items as accurately as possible and point out and try to photograph any flaws. If you feel I have incorrectly described something or missed a flaw, I will gladly take the item back. From you I ask that you decide that you really want the item being saleed before you offer rather than once it is in your hands. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please email me through . If you find yourself not being able to offer because of my shipping restrictions, email me and perhaps we can work something out.
Also, if you are going to throw me a curveball I ask that you let me know ahead of time so that we can discuss it. offerding from Phoenix and then asking me to ship it to Bangladesh is a curveball. I expect offers locations and shipping locations to match. Please let me know if this is not the case before offerding so that we can discuss it. Also, if you won't be paying for a while, please let me know.
I promise to work honestly with you. I would appreciate the same courtesy.
Feel free to contact me through for any questions or clarifications. I'm usually pretty quick on responses.
