Alfredo
                              Barbini Murano Glass Midcentury Bookends
Alfredo Barbini Murano Glass Bookends
            SOLD


Description: These lovely midcentury glass bookends are Murano glass by Barbini.  The simplified shell form isn't really hard to find, but this coloring is a different story.  The sommerso work includes a white and a taupe/pink curl with a liberal dusting of copper aventurine.  The effect is elegant and excellent, a beautiful addition to any shelf with or without books.

Dimensions:  
Height is about 6 3/4" on one and about 6 7/8" on the other.

Company/Artist:  Barbini

  
Estimated Date: I saw one listing as 1942 but have no confirmation.
 
Condition:
excellent with no damage and no repairs.

Price: SOLD


Shipping: Will vary based on location due to the weight.  Contact us for a quote. (We usually ship via Priority Mail, but we can do Parcel Post if necessary.

Guarantee:  Our guarantee is a fairly simple one.  When you get the package, if you don't like the item, send it back.  We'll refund the original price and original shipping charge.  The only part you're risking is the cost to return it.  And if we made an important mistake in the description, we'll cover the return shipping aswell.  (Saying something is 12" tall when it's really 10" counts as an "important" mistake.  A spelling error does not.)  

Mostly, we do things this way because we think it's the right thing to do, but we're also fully aware that a happy customer is
more likely to be a repeat customer and tell friends about this great site they found.

Payment: First of all, we like getting paid.  It really does make everything run more smoothly, so we try to be as flexible as we can.  Essentially, if we can put it in the bank without breaking any laws, we'll probably take it.  So checks that won't bounce are fine.  We're only set up to take credit cards through Paypal unless you want to buy through our Etsy site.  (For international sales, Paypal is easiest for us, but we'll listen if you have another preference.)  

We even take cash if it's not from a Monopoly set or freshly printed in your basement.  Sorry, but we don't take chickens.  If you have any questions about payment methods, just get in touch.

  To buy an item (or more), just e-mail us, or you can call us at 812-467-0191.

We'll confirm that the item is still available, make sure we agree on the total, and answer any questions you wish to throw our way. Checks or money orders should be made "Forrest OR Virginia Poston". We also take Paypal (including credit card payments). 

We try to ship in one or two days after payment arrives, and we're generous with the bubblewrap and styrofoam peanuts.

If there's something you'd like us to find for you, let us know. We're just itching to please you, or maybe that was poison ivy we got into.

  Remember that all proceeds go to support good causes: my spouse, our cats (see the"staff" here), our creditors, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
