Beautiful Antique French Bronze Footed Ink Stand
















Description

 

   SUPERB ANTIQUE FRENCH BRONZE FOOTED INK STAND  

France

   Circa 1900   

 

             

                    Exceptional 19th or early 20th century French ink stand of absolutely exquisite design with heavy scrolling, seashells & other fine decoration, upraised on 4 scrolled legs. All four sides are beautifully curled & the ink pot sits on a raised platform with a wonderful hinged lid topped with a finial, the original clear glass pot resting within the recessed opening.

                   This lovely stand measures 6-1/4 inches by 5-1/2 inches, 3-3/4 inches high & is very good condition with one of the feet to the rear slightly bent, but it sits perfectly level & is easily remedied, & a small chip to the underside of the rim of the glass. It is engraved to the bottom with the following: I Epose (or Il Epose), N=46, IL & to the inside lid: 15 & 18. I have researched these markings, but was unsuccessful, so perhaps one of you Francophiles could be of assistance! It is a truly exquisite piece & the patina is simply outstanding.           

                   SIZE: 6-1/4 x 5-1/2 inches, 3-3/4 inches high

                   WEGHT: 24.3 ounces, or 692 grams  

                   CONDITION: Very Good (see above)

 

USPS POSTAL RATE INCREASE IS IN EFFECT, BUT I DO OFFER COMBINED SHIPPING. SHIPPING IS ALSO HIGHER DUE TO THE "PROTECTION" COST, BUT THE COST IS EXACTLY WHAT I AM CHARGED.   

INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS, THIS ITEM MUST SHIP BY EITHER FIRST CLASS REGISTERED, WHICH INCLUDES THE $11.75 REGISTERED FEE FOR TRACKING, OR BY USPS EXPRESS MAIL IF IT SELLS FOR OVER $400. DELIVERY CONFIRMATION IS INCLUDED FOR THE U.S. INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS, PLEASE REQUEST A SHIPPING QUOTE BEFORE THE END OF THE AUCTION OR USE THE SHIPPING CALCULATOR PROVIDED. ALL ITEMS OVER $200, MUST BE INSURED. ANY AMOUNT OVER THE ACTUAL COST + HANDLING FEE (eBay's 9% Final Value Fee on shipping + full protection during shipment), WILL BE REFUNDED. PLEASE REMIND ME IF I FORGET.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO LEAVE FEEDBACK AS IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO US SELLERS & PLEASE RECYCLE, AS WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILTY TO THIS BEAUTIFUL PLANET TO EITHER REUSE THE MANY BOXES & PACKING MATERIALS THAT WE RECEIVE OR TO DISPOSE OF THEM PROPERLY THROUGH RECYCLING.

I try so hard to give 5 Star Service, so if you are unhappy about anything to do with shipping cost or transit time, or ANYTHING, please contact me & we will work it out. I ALWAYS ship my items within 3-4 days of payment, therefore it is not my fault if the Postal Service delays the delivery, ESPECIALLY in shipping internationally. International Buyers, please wait for an invoice reflecting your additional shipping cost, if not stated, & please contact me for a shipping quote before the end of the auction. Customs duties are not part of the shipping cost & are the sole responsibility of the buyer. PLEASE communicate with me, as I am easy to work with & fair.  

 RETURNS WILL BE ACCEPTED ONLY IF THE ITEM IS DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT THAN STATED IN THE EXTREMELY DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS & PHOTOGRAPHS PROVIDED, & MUST BE POSTMARKED BACK TO ME WITHIN 3 BUSINESS DAYS AFTER PERMISSION HAS BEEN GRANTED.

 

Terms of Sale

 

I try to describe all items accurately and to give good visual support through photographs and text of what I feel is accurate information.

Selling antique and vintage items is not an exact science and a lot of the time it is based on educated guesswork.

If there is clear provenance then I will provide it. If not, I will give an opinion expressed with a level of confidence based on my knowledge and experience. I am not so arrogant to assume that I am always correct. I would never deliberately mislead, but I occasionally get things wrong.

For any purchase the buyer should make an INFORMED decision, based on the information provided and if they are in ANY doubt, then it is best not to place a bid.

Insurance upon request. Delivery confirmation is provided.

RETURNS POLICY

ONLY if the item is decidedly different than stated in the very detailed descriptions & photographs provided, & must be postmarked within 3 business days after permission has been granted by me for the return.

 

FEEDBACK IS GRATEFULLY REQUESTED! THANK YOU!
