Offered at auction are Sterling Salt and Pepper Shakers and are made in England.
This set is in very good to excellent condition with few of the usual and expected use and/or storage marks. There are two small flat spots on one.
Each shaker stands 4 3/4 inches tall and has a 2 1/4 inch footprint.
These weigh 195 grams.
As mentioned, this is in very good condition and would make an absolutely splendid gift for that very special person on your list... even if that person is you.
Please view the pictures carefully. I generally take my photographs outside in sunlight to accurately depict the colors and conditions of the items I am offering. So if you see any marks or colors that look like damage... it is the sun, the clouds, or me. Today, the sun is playing peek-a-boo with the surrounding trees and any dark spots or weird colors you see are the bare tree limbs above where I was taking the photographs.
When it is safely possible, I try to combine shipments to save on postage and packaging requirements. There are some instances where that may not be possible, so if you have won more than one auction, please wait until you receive an invoice from me.
Per new EBay rules, the shipping insurance is included in the shipping costs.
I have had requests to ship in a padded envelope instead of a box...while this may save some in shipping costs, it is a risky endeavor with delicate sterling items, so please don't ask. I usually ship Priority Mail flat-rate (mainly because they supply the boxes which can get obscenely expensive)
As always, shipping amounts are estimates only and I always refund any overages that may occur. If you cannot understand the reasoning for my shipping method, and will later complain that my shipping costs are too high, please buy from someone else... there's plenty of sellers that just don't care. I take great pride in the condition of the sterling items that I am trying to protect, and I am determined to get them to you, the buyer, in the same exceptional condition.
I try to fully and faithfully disclose any irregularities I find but I am far from perfect and some things may escape my detection. When damage (no matter how minute) I try to make sure that it is clearly depicted in the photos. Also, while I thoroughly wash and hand-polish every piece of sterling that I sell, I do not have the time or the inclination to get out a toothbrush and clean every little nook and cranny of the more intricate designs unless build-up or tarnish is excessive.
I believe that I have described the above auction offering accurately and in detail. Please consult the photographs or Email me with any questions.
My word is my bond. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me within 3 business days to arrange return and a refund of your purchase price. Shipping charges are not refundable.
The sterling that I am currently listing are not my property and as such, I am unable to make a 'deal' or entertain a 'Best Offer' scenario. They belong to a friend who is in the precious metals business. He has a warehouse that is stockpiled with sterling items that he has purchased over the last 28 years of business, including more than 100 different silver flatware sets. With the soaring price of silver, he had decided to send them all to the smelter to be melted down.
Instead, I convinced him to let me try to offer them on Ebay so that they would not be destroyed. I know that there are silver lovers out there that wish to harken back to the days of genteel dining and gracious living. Besides, I have come to genuinely appreciate anything that is older than me and still survives.
Due to recent complications with International bidders and shipping policies, I will only ship via Express Mail International with full insurance. I WILL NOT alter the final bid price on the required customs forms.
