Selling items for my mother, her cherished collectibles, as well as from Vintage Estate Jewelry and Collectible items from other estates we have inherited and acquired over the past few years. Some estate items are newer, within the last 4-10 years, but purchased and barely worn and just stored with estate collection. Please do not expect store bought perfect new items! Our items are sold 'AS IS' or Vintage, meaning used condition, will show some signs of age, use, and wear expected with a pre-owned, used item. We will never guarantee our items to be in perfect condition, but then you would be paying department store prices! If items are clearly marked, we do not have it acid tested, especially if markings include designer’s markings. Unmarked items we have tested. If natural hairline internal cracks in stones, loose settings (that normally happen over the years) bother you, or expect perfect, then you do not want Vintage. Even jewelry that is brand new tends to have flaws. This is all Antique Art Deco/Nouveau, Victorian, Vintage and newer Collectible jewelry, all newer items have been stored and are still part of the humongous estate collection and may have been worn, but minimally. Silver jewelry with stones sometimes loosen over the years, and stones shift and accumulate hairline cracks. This is part of the charm of vintage jewelry. Anything distracting we will note in our listings, anything damaged we do not list. Of course we may miss some flaws even after examining and we do apologize, but we have also issued refunds for those (which have been few). We have researched all items, but are not experts, and have some great local resources, but please ask questions or share your knowledge too! We do not list anything that we would not wear ourselves!
THIS AUCTION: Beautiful rare piece. Hung on Victorian Chatelaine. Unmarked but is a rolled gold plated two piece mechanical pencil, still has a thick lead in tact inside. Solid polished outside, outside of pencil is polished tip with a thin ribbed body, polished cap. Outside is plain with 3 letters engraved north/south. Looks like PFT, but fancy lettering and hard to tell. Top has a hinged bale with circle ring. The pencil measured without the additional ring measures 3 6/16 inches long, slightly over ¼ inch diameter. It is in nice condition, especially considering the age, a few very tiny dings but nothing you would really notice without examining super closely. Just a fine piece. Take a look at pictures! Read our feedback! Incredible deals here! WE DO COMBINE SHIPPING, please wait for invoice, multiple items ship for same price unless weight changes dramatically!!! All condition of items are nice and may only need a gentle cleaning due to dust from not being worn or stored away for quite a few years. As a general rule, we leave all vintage and antique jewelry in their current condition since most desire the items to be received in their lovely vintage or antique condition. Leaving most of the descriptions up to the pictures, so ask any questions and we will be happy to get back to you as soon as we can! Lucky winner pays via PAYPAL. Please read our return policy.
