About Black Forest Antiques

Dear friends and customers

We are worldwide in a very dangerous situation. The Corona Virus affects us all and our life. We have never experienced anything like this.

My shopping options and my shipping possibilities are limited.

My shop remains open, but I cannot ship because of the broken international connections.

I would be happy if you like the objects I am offering. You are welcome to shop, please only order but not pay. Simply select "other". This will reserve the item for you.

You can then complete the transaction later, including payment, as soon as the corona situation improves. The transaction is declared as a layaway, of course at no additional cost to you.


=========== =========== =========== ============ ===========

Layaway welcome, please see below our layaway plan.

We respond to all orders within 24 hours, we guarantee the authenticity of all our items.
Welcome to Black Forest Antiques!

Antique dealer with long experience, I am glad to be part of Ruby Lane.

I am located in the area of the Black Forest, South Germany, close to France and Switzerland. A lovely place for holiday and a "goldmine" for Black Forest or French antiques.

I offer LAYAWAY with no more costs for the buyer. My layaway terms are EASY and FAIR:

- monthly payments
- deposit 20%, that will reserve the item for you.
- the remainder can be paid within 60 to 180 days subjected to the purchase price: until 500 US$ 60 days, 501 – 1,000 US $ 90 days, 1,001 - 1,500 US $ 120 days, over 1,501 US $ 180 days. If you wish another installment plan, please contact me, I will try to be flexible.
- If you decide to cancel the purchase order, I refund the paid amount less 5% cancellation fee.
- Items bought on layaway cannot be returned.

I accept payment through paypal. Traditional wire/bank transfer ONLY AFTER agreement about bank fees. No credit card payment possible.

For many items I am offering are no shipping/insurance fee to pay. For the other, I try to find out the best and cheapest shipping, but the safety of your purchase is my most important care. Please consider, I cannot be responsible for customs clearance delays or any import charges. Local custom fees, if necessary, are to be paid by the recipient on arrival.

I am normally shipping with German Post or DHL (not DHL Express). The shipping fee is calculated for this service. The delivery to mostly countries takes about 12 business days. If you wish a faster delivery, please contact me as the shipping with other carriers (like FedEx, UPS or DHL Express) is much more expensive.

Should you buy something in my shop with which you are not fully satisfied, you may return it to your costs; see please Ruby Lane return policy. If item is returned and originally included the shipping charge this shipping/handling/insurance charge paid by seller will be deducted from the refund. Additional to Ruby Lane Policy: Please check the shipping with me before you return the item. I do not accept returns through FedEx or UPS.

Please buy in confidence, I keep my promise. You will not regret!
I hope to meet you soon.
