Please remember that the vintage dates of these items are based on stamping, signing or labeling, when possible. Methods used to quote dates of unsigned, labeled or stamped pieces are a combination of style, quotes from original owners and research. The items that I acquire are in excellent condition, unless otherwise noted. Occasionally I will pick an item based on it's unique qualities that I feel outweigh any disclosed flaws. Maintaining the integrity of vintage and antique items is very important to me. I price my items based on their collectible value, i.e. signed pieces are more valuable than unsigned, as well as the unique or hard to find qualities that they may possess. Pricing items in this manner will maintain their value for years to come.
My research for dating and pricing vintage/antiques items is extensive - if you have any questions regarding the pricing or dating of a particular piece, please let me know...I will happily provide all research information.

Shipping, Handling, Insurance Policy
Items will ship within 24 hours from time of purchase (excluding weekends and holidays) and/or receipt of payment, with a shipping time of 2-8 business days within the United States and 8-21 business days on International shipments. All shipping will be through the USPS, parcel post or priority mail or UPS Ground / 3 Day Select, depending on the weight of the item and unless otherwise noted. Insurance is included on all jewelry items (US and International orders).
Please remember that shipping costs reflect the actual cost plus shipping supplies.
Due to changes in US postal policies heavier International shipments (over 4 pounds) need to be sent Priority Mail, making them more expensive to ship. If you are interested in one of these items, please contact me with your location for a price quote.
