Shipment for those items will be made on the Monday following receipt of full payment.

RETURNS: Returns are accepted, but must be made within 7 days of purchase. Items must be received in the same condition as when sold. No refunds are provided on shipping. Restocking fees apply to all returns, where a refund is requested. However, for refunds accepted in the form of a store credit on future sales, the restocking fee will be waived.
About Us
Dark Flowers Antiques specializes in fine Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Arts & Crafts pottery and porcelain. We are sure you will enjoy the pure beauty and quality of these items for years to come.

We developed a love for hand-painted signed and dated porcelain that was very popular in the late 1880's through the 1940's. These pieces originated as porcelain blanks (white porcelain), manufactured in Europe (France, Bavaria, Austro-Hungarian Empire) and were sent to the US and Canada for women and men to paint. Many times clubs were formed and competitions held among the artists. Pattern publications were issued, such as Keramic Studio Magazine which provided patterns and instructions on china decorating, so there will be similar designs and patterns, but being hand-painted, each item is unique and on of a kind. We feel that this is a lost art form, and so are drawn to the aesthetic beauty of the items.

We also love Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau pottery from Austria (pre-World War I, the Austro-Hungarian Empire), mainly from the Amphora companies, Royal Bonn "Old Dutch" style from the 1890's-1923, Royal Doulton Arts & Crafts Pottery from 1923-1927, and Consolidated Glass from the US in the 1920's.

We offer FREE SHIPPING in the UNITED STATES via USPS Priority Mail Insured and, if requested, free shipping to CANADA and WORLDWIDE via USPS First Class Mail (International buyers, we will modify the invoice to reflect free shipping at time of order confirmation upon request). We use ecologically-friendly packing materials as much as possible... using recyclable cardboard, clean newsprint or tissue paper, bubble wrap, and packing peanuts (made out of starch so that they dissolve in water... although these may be more expensive, we are committed to protecting our environment).

Payment by Paypal, major credit cards, Money Order or Check is accepted. For credit card payments other than through Paypal, please contact me to process the credit card and I can take the credit card information over the phone.

LAY-AWAY is available. Our terms are: 30% due at time of order, 30% due 30 days after placement of order, and the balance due within 60 days of placement of order. Failure to conform to the payment schedule, without our concurrence, will result in forfeiture of all payments made and the item will be returned to our inventory.

Payment for any confirmed Purchase Order is required within 7 days. Failure to pay within that time, without obtaining the specific approval from us, will result in the item being returned to our shop inventory, and the Buyer will be blocked from future purchases from our shop.

The items we are offering for purchase are described as best as we can. We are not experts on all of these items, but we are providing the best information we have on them. All items are described to the best of our knowledge and as accurately as possible. We attempt to identify all defects, damage or problems with the items in our shop, as well as attempt to show them in the pictures. However, these items are not new, and therefore may contain small scratches or crazing that we may have missed. If you have any questions regarding the condition of the items, please contact us and we will answer any questions.
