Glass Bowl with cutting and red stain
Description: This bowl is excellent quality and has a lot of work involved, but it's unmarked, always a bit frustrating. The glass itself is hand made with ruby-stained panels with cross-hatch cutting plus floral cutting. The gold in the floral cutting is well-worn, which often happens, but this is a beautiful piece of work, and I really wish that I knew who deserved the credit. I've seen similar ruby and crosshatch work on German glass, but I've seen floral cutting much like this in design and execution on French and American glass.
Dimensions: Height is about 5" and diameter about 10".
Estimated Date: 1920 based primarily on the floral cutting, could be as much as twenty years off either way....sorry.
Condition: excellent with no damage to the glass, just the wear on the gold
Price: $95 plus shipping/insurance.
Shipping: Will vary based on location. 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 ismore 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.
