Antique Silver Decorated Ebony DRESSING TABLE or DESK SET. HM B'ham ~1921. JS&Co

£65.00 or Best Offer Unsold, £4.60 Shipping

Seller: 15yssm (1,949) 100%, Location: Wilmslow, Cheshire, Ships to: GB, Item: 332347947369 A beautiful original ebony set of tray and 2 pots. Which I can't decide if it would have been a dressing table set for hair pins, hat pins, powder etc or a desk set with pots for pens, maybe ink, papers etc. The tray is enhanced by a pair of silver initials (ED) but don't let that put you off because they are so embellished that it looks more like a pattern! (Or could easily be removed). There is a part fro ? Papers at the back. The pots each have a decorative, hallmarked, silver plaque on their lids. I have added an additional item FREE which was not bought with the original set, but goes so well - so a 'marriage' piece if you like! It is also in ebony and has a decorated silver plaque on the front. It is made by the same company and also Hallmarked in Birmingham in 1921. May have been used for spills, or pins or ? even a candle stick. Hallmarks: Set: Birmingham. Date difficult to read (would be funny if it was also 1921 - may have matched up an original piece!) Maker J.S & Co for John Satchwell & Co. Extra piece: Birmingham 1921. Same maker. Condition: some of the Silver not sitting quite as flat as it would have been originally. Occasional scuffs to the wood of the pots. 💍👠👑Please Note: Any items used in presenting a listing eg. jewellery boxes; lace/embroidered cloths; jewellery/scarves used to adorn clothes; or additional items of clothing, showing how something can be styled, are for display purposes only unless itemised in the listing. 📲📞QUESTIONS 📞📲 If you have any further questions don't hesitate to message me. I will try to answer within 24hrs. (NB Occasionally if you have sent a question within 18hrs of the end of the auction I may not have the opportunity to see the question and answer it in time). ♀️ WEAR & TEAR 👩 🌾 I respectfully ask that buyers appreciate when bidding that nearly all of my items are preloved (unless stated as new) and will show signs of use. Clothing & shoes etc. will all be clean but may have been stored for a while and creased from storage or during delivery. Please expect the normal faults, flaws and imperfections which are relative to the items' age. I will always try to describe faults and damage and photograph them in the most honest way I can, as pictures often give a better overall idea of condition. Please ensure you view the pictures fully to form your own opinion regarding condition. I will give an overall condition grade: Excellent; Very good; Good; Average for age; Poor - could be mended/reconditioned or for scrap. ❤️ COLOUR 💜 I know it is really annoying when an item is not the colour you expect: Colours can vary in different light and on different monitors; people call colours by different names; and eBay says use a common term in the title to get noticed, eg. purple, rather than plum or damson etc! So I will try take some photos in natural light, and only use flash to highlight detail (which can be especially necessary on dark items) and I will note which photo is closest to the true colour. ♀️ NOW TO THE BORING BITS THAT KEEP THINGS FLOWING SMOOTHLY ♂️ Having been an eBay buyer for several years, you get a nice feeling when you have had good service; conversely when it is bad, it can really give you the hump! Now as a (new) seller I hope to transfer that knowledge into giving my buyers a good experience -so you will give good feedback and hopefully want to come back again. It is assumed that if you place a bid you have read & agreed to any terms mentioned below. Thanks. Payment: • PayPal, or cash on collection. • Please pay within 3 days. (Unless bidding on further items - see combined shipping below). I will try to post the day after my listings finished so early payment may be rewarded by quick posting (but not always possible-sorry). I do not go to the post office with individual items if they have been payed for later, I will post them with my next group which will be 3 or 4 days later. P&P: • I do not aim to make a profit on postage- it is charged at cost only (including the fees eBay & Paypal charge on the P&P- really don't know how they get way with this!) and sometimes even subsidised. There are times when eBay suggested, or my guesstimate is wrong and I end up paying more, or less, for postage- so it all works out in the wash! • I will use recycled packaging wherever possible- to reduce landfill & cost! • Please choose the speed of delivery and level of insurance you require (I generally automatically add the cheapest option that will compensate for the expected cost): - 1st or 2nd Class (compensated up to £20) - 1st or 2nd Class Signed-for (compensated up to £50) - Special Delivery next day by 1pm. (standard gives compensation up to £500, but if needed, this can be increased up to £1,000 or a maximum of £2,500 at extra cost) • I will always obtain a Certificate of Proof of Posting. • Items over 2Kg or over 90cm will be sent Hermes door to door, as this becomes the more economical option. Items sent via courier are insured up to the value of £20 as standard. You may request a higher insurance value before paying and the postal cost will be adjusted accordingly. • International Posting is via the Global Shipping Program - these prices are fixed by eBay. Your item is trackable & will usually arrive within 10-20 days. • I will post twice per week as necessary - as I try to end items on Wednesday or Sunday I will usually post Monday or Tuesday and Thursday or Friday, depending how quickly people pay. Occasionally there may be a delay as due to health problems I am sometimes reliant on others to go to the Post Office for me. I will let you know if it is more than 4 days. (NB. If you need something urgently, or by a specific date, message me and I will put every effort into getting it to you quickly). • Combined Postage: Please take a look at my other items as I am happy to combine postage, just let me know if you are waiting for another listing within a reasonable time frame (up to 7 days). Please add items to your eBay Shopping Cart and then request combined invoice, which will include the postage discount. Postage will usually be discounted to that of the item with the highest postage rate, unless, occasionally, a higher postage tariff is needed to cover increased weight, size or value. 👆 NB. DO NOT PAY SEPARATELY, because I will be charged eBay & Paypal fees on all the postage even if I then refund part (which is quite a faddle to do!) so your discount will not be as much as it could have been. WAIT for me to send your combined invoice.👆 Feedback: Please kindly leave feedback to confirm safe receipt of your purchase and I will gladly do the same. In the RARE Case of Lost Post: If you do not receive you items within 14 days please message me and I will do my best to claim compensation for the package through Royal Mail (or Hermes) as appropriate. NB. Royal Mail will only classify post as lost after 15 working days of the expected delivery date (i.e. 3weeks). Therefore in the meantime, I suggest initially be patient and wait to see if it just turns up late or maybe redirected from where it went to wrongly. Please don't just open a lost package case with eBay (especially before 10days!) as it just adds stress and slows down the process by up to 3 weeks. I will pass on the compensation amount once received. PLEASE NOTE: it is up to you as the buyer to choose/request the appropriate postage that will compensate you for the cost of your item if lost in the post. If you decide to take a chance and choose a lower cost postal option, with lower compensation, that is the maximum that can be claimed from the post office and therefore the maximum I can forward to the buyer. (See options above under P+P) Returns: I am a private seller trying to clear some of my clutter and hoards- from shoes, clothes and jewellery to collectibles and antiques. So I really don't want things revolving back again because someone has changed their mind or an item doesn't fit! So please ensure you ask any relevant questions before you bid. But mistakes can happen- if I have made a significant error in the listing then please message me (rather than opening an eBay case), and we can try to sort it out in a friendly manner. I think it is only fair that if I have made a serious error then I should pay the return postage (I don't agree with sellers expecting the buyer to pay when it is the sellers mistake!). Please do not return anything without checking with me first. 📎👛💍👗I will be posting many more items of jewellery, shoes, clothes, collectibles/antiques in the next few/many months (?years!)- once I get the hang of listing quicker! So please look at what else I have to offer and even 'save me' to look again. 👛💍👗📎 🐈From a smoke free home, but we do have 4 beautiful rescue moggies- so be aware the parcel may occasionally have a present of a short silky cat hair, or even one of my, or my daughters', long hairs, which seem to get everywhere - please don't take offence!🐈 👗👠👑GOOD LUCK BIDDING & COME BACK SOON!👗👠👑 Condition: Tray & 2 pots all original matching set. & FREE additional piece different hallmarks but goes nicely with the set.hallmarks, Product: Pots/ Planters, Product Sub-Type: Desk Set / Dressing Table Set, Primary Material: Wood/ Woodenware, Sub-Type: Ebony, Style/ Period: Art Nouveau, Original/Repro: Original
