This is a wonderful Halloween themed noisemaker. It retains its original red and blue striped paper covering over heavy cardboard base. Original wooden tip where one can blow. The other end shows a little bit of paper wear. A delightful papier mache cat stands on top of the noisemaker and looks ready to pounce. Painted facial features, including whiskers! Braided straw tail has some black paint loss. Small crease at one end of the nose maker, near the wooden tip. The cat measures 3.5" tall. The cat is secured to the noisemaker with glue, which looks to be original. I did not blow on the tip to see if any noise is made... The noisemaker's length is approximately 17".
I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues. Please contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. If you are seeking a collectible which looks brand new please reconsider purchasing. Our items are as described, but descriptions are subjective, after all. Please note, if an item is returned within our 3 day return window, your payment will be returned, minus a 3% restocking fee. We do not issue refunds for shipping.
Layaway is available. A 20 percent non refundable deposit will secure the item and we will work with you regarding the length of the layaway. We are fairly flexible. No refunds on layaway.
Please note, Ruby Lane's calculated shipping is an estimate and sometimes can be intimidating. Rest assured, I only charge my actual shipping costs and will refund any excess you have paid. USPS shipping rates (both domestic and international) continue to increase. I ship based on size of box (anything over 12" is considered oversized and charged a surcharge by USPS), weight, insurance and priority, first class or express options. I will refund any excess you have paid. I do combine shipping for multiple purchases.
I have been struggling with fellow Ruby Lane dealers/customers who send me offers, and when I accept, they back out of the offer, do not respond to emails, etc. Please do not purchase or send an offer unless you are willing to stand behind it and keep your commitment to purchase. Many times I have to make a 60 mile round trip to pick up the item to pack it. I BLOCK all non paying customers and customers who back out of Best Offer arrangements.
Please do not purchase an item to "reserve" it and block if from selling to others while you negotiate a lower price. A purchase order is a commitment to buy the item at the price listed and not a pathway to put an item on "hold" while you ponder about your purchase.
