F.Y.I. I am a 3rd generation antiques dealer & have been in the fine antiques business for over 30 years. I have had several open stores over these years but now with rents out of the realm of reality & my age creeping up on me, I have closed the last of them & I am now concentrating all efforts to on line sales. I am very knowledgeable about all types of antiques. I do not & will not sell fakes or reproductions of anything. All my items are 100% as described & the pictures prove it! Any damage or imperfection is noted and all items are mailed with an invisible ID mark that only I know of. This will eliminate anyone trying to item switch a broken treasure with my perfect piece. If you want any other detail about an item, please ask & be certain to include your direct email address for a reply. Ebay does not allow my sending pictures thru their email service. I will try to accomodate all requests on 1st come, 1st served daily basis. I do not sell outside ebay so do not ask. I can offer a very expensive buy it now if you must have it today! I ship 1 day a week so please be patient. Everything is very carefully packed as I love my things & want you to enjoy them in the same condition as I have. All items are sent via USPS & Insured at full value. Sorry if this costs International buyers more but these are ebay's rules & I will follow them to the letter. Please work out any special payment request in advance as all sales should be simply processed through PayPal unless we have made prior arrangements. Ask any & all questions before you bid as the bid is your contract to purchase. I allow 5 days for payment in full otherwise the item is sold to the next highest bidder or re-listed & I will leave appropriate feedback to all non paying bidders. I hope everything is very plain & simple to understand but do not be shy about asking anything should you require additional info or details. I hope you enjoy each & every item as most are from my private collection assembled over the past 30 years and never before offered for sale. Each piece is very special, of great quality, rare for its' kind and worthy of any advanced collection. Thank You, Bernice Ellen
