LOVELY, RARE SIGNED BRONZE RELIEF PLAQUE by

HAMO THORNYCROFT

 

THIS IS A VERY RARE AND INTERESTING SIGNED RELIEF BRONZE PLAQUE BY THE FAMED LATE 19th. TO EARLY 20th. SCULPTOR HAMO THORNYCROFT WHICH DATES, I WOULD GUESS, FROM THE FIRST DECADE OF THE 20th CENTURY TO THE BEGINNING OF THE 1920's (IT IS PROBABLY PRE 1917 AS IT WAS IN THIS YEAR HE WAS KNIGHTED AND I WOULD ASSUME THE SOBRIQUET 'SIR' WOULD BE PRESENT ON HIS WORK IF IT WAS SCULPTED AFTER THIS DATE). IT IS DEPICTED AS A ROUGHLY RECTANGULAR AND RELATIVELY LARGE CAST BRONZE RELIEF PLAQUE PORTRAYING A YOUNG WOMAN IN A LIGHT WEIGHT (SUMMER) DRESS AND BOBBED HAIR STANDING IN A GARDEN SETTING ADMIRING THE FLOWERS, WHILE ABOVE IS A BANNER SURMOUNTED BY A PAIR OF PUTTI WITH THE LEGEND 'OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP HORTICULTURAL PRIZE ... WON BY'. BELOW IS ANOTHER BANNER WITH THE NAME OF THE COMPANY DONATING THE PRIZE, AND TO THE LEFT HAND CORNER IS THORNYCROFT'S SIGNATURE. HAMO THORNYCROFT WAS AN EMINENT AND INFLUENTIAL 19th. CENTURY ARTIST WHO'S WORK CAN BE SEEN IN MOST MAJOR MUSEUMS AND GALLERYS IN THIS COUNTRY, WHILE ONE OF HIS MOST FAMOUS WORKS IS THE LARGE SCULPTED BRONZE STATUE OF OLIVER CROMWELL OUTSIDE THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT IN WESTMINSTER. 

IT MEASURES 11 1/2" (28.5cm) H x 6 3/4" (17.25cm) W APPROX; AND IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH NO DEFECT AT ALL TO REPORT.

THIS IS AN INTERESTING AND RARE SIGNED BRONZE PLAQUE BY A MAJOR BRITISH ARTIST THATS IN GREAT CONDITION AND WITH A LOW START PRICE SHOULD GET SHOULD GET CONSIDERABLE INTEREST FROM ALL COLLECTORS.

IF YOU HAVE SPECIAL SHIPPING NEEDS I AM  HAPPY TO COMPLY, HOWEVER THIS WILL BE AT THE BUYERS EXPENSE, BUT PLEASE REMEMBER WHEN A CONSIGNMENT EXCEEDS 2Kg SHIPPING COSTS INCREASE DRAMATICALLY.

 

POSTAGE INDICATED IS FOR U.K. DOMESTIC SHIPPING ONLY. OVERSEAS SHIPPING CHARGES CAN BE VIEWED ON MOST ARTICLES WHEN THE RELEVENT COUNTRY IS CLICKED INTO THE EBAY POSTAL DROP-DOWN SEARCH FACILITY (I SHIP WORLD WIDE WITH MOST ITEMS SO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING PRICES ARE SUPPLIED). OTHERWISE IT WILL BE FORWARDED WITH YOUR INVOICE (UPON WINNING AN ITEM).

 

WITH THE NEW MANDATORY DISPATCH TIMES REQUIRED BY EBAY I HAVE OPTED FOR A FOUR DAY MINIMUM, BUT IN REALITY I USUALLY SHIP WITHIN TWO WORKING DAYS AFTER CLEARED PAYMENT. I HAVE SELECTED THE FOUR DAY OPTION TO COVER MYSELF IN CASE OF ILLNESS OR ANY OF THE BELOW.

 

I GENERALLY POST MONDAYS AND FRIDAYS, HOWEVER PLEASE BE PATIENT IF :

* MONDAYS FALL ON A BANK HOLIDAY.

* YOU HAVE PAID BY CHEQUE AND THE CLEARING DATE IS OUT OF SYNC WITH SHIPPING DAYS (POSTAGE WILL BE DONE A.S.A.P. ON ONE OF THE ABOVE SHIPPING DAYS AFTER CLEARANCE).

* THERE IS A MAIL STRIKE.

* OR YOUR PAYPAL PAYMENT IS WHAT THEY CONSIDER AN E-CHEQUE - PLEASE CHECK YOUR PAYMENT METHOD.

 

THE SHIPPING COST INCLUDES A SMALL PACKAGING AND HANDLING CHARGE AND THEREFORE DOES NOT REFLECT POSTAGE ALONE, IF YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THIS PLEASE RECONSIDER BIDDING.

 

RETURNS

 

PLEASE NOTE MOST ITEMS I PUT UP FOR SALE ARE ANTIQUE AND THEREFORE HAVE BEEN PRE OWNED.

 

AS THE ITEMS I SELL ARE UNIQUE, ANTIQUE, AND OVER 100 YEARS OLD (UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED) THEY FALL OUTSIDE THE DISTANCE SELLING REGULATIONS. RETURNS WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTED IF THE DESCRIPTION IS GROSSLY INCORRECT - THESE ARE NOT MASS PRODUCED CONSUMABLES WHICH CAN BE REPLACED IF FAULTY OR YOU JUST DON’T LIKE IT. IF YOU HAVE ANY RESERVATIONS PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR CLARIFICATION. IF YOU STILL FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE OR DON’T AGREE WITH THE ABOVE PLEASE RECONSIDER BIDDING.

 

DESCRIPTIONS WILL BE MADE AS ACCURATELY AND HONESTLY AS POSSIBLE, HOWEVER AS PEOPLE'S PERCEPTION OF CONDITION VARIES, I WILL DO MY BEST TO DESCRIBE AN OBJECT TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY, AND WILL SUPPLY EXTENSIVE GOOD QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHS, WHICH WILL INCLUDE ANY IMPERFECTION I HAVE MENTIONED, SO AS TO MAKE YOUR OWN JUDGEMENT.

 

MONEY WILL BE REFUNDED ONLY IF MY DESCRIPTION OF AN OBJECT IS GROSSLY INCORRECT.

 

THIS MUST DONE WITHIN 14 DAYS OF THE END OF SALE AND  RETURNED IN ORIGINAL CONDITION AND IN ORIGINAL PACKAGING.

 

COST OF DELIVERY IS A SERVICE AND THEREFORE NONREFUNDABLE.

 

RETURN SHIPPING WILL BE AT THE BUYER'S EXPENSE.

 

IN THE EVENT A REFUND HAS BEEN AGREED AND PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE VIA PAYPAL THE NET SUM I RECEIVED (PRICE MINUS PAYPAL'S COMMISSION) WILL BE FORWARDED.

 

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL A PART REFUND BE ISSUED.

 

ON CERTAIN OBJECTS A SEAL WILL BE PLACED AND BREAKING THE SEAL CONSTITUTES ACCEPTANCE OF THE OBJECT, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL A REFUND BE MADE IF THE SEAL IS BROKEN.

 

ALMOST EVERY THING I SELL IS IN THE CONDITION I HAVE BOUGHT IT, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, (I HAVE LEARNT TO MY COST IN THE PAST NOT TO TAMPER WITH AN ITEM), AND THEREFORE I HAVE NEITHER HAD ITEMS REPAIRED NOR RESTORED. I WILL ENDEAVOUR TO REPORT ON AN ITEM WHICH HAS HAD EITHER; HOWEVER I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY IF AN ITEM HAS BEEN TAMPERED WITH AND I CANNOT DETECT IT.

 

OVERSEAS BUYERS

 

AS DIFFERENT COUNTRIES HAVE DIFFERENT IMPORT LAWS AND REGULATIONS IT IS INCUMBENT UPON THE BUYER TO KNOW WHAT THESE ARE IN RELATION TO WHAT THEY ARE BIDDING ON. ALL ITEMS I SELL ARE ANTIQUE UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED AND THEREFORE WELL WITHIN THE REQUIREMENTS OF THIS COUNTRY, BUT MAYBE A GREY AREA ELSEWHERE, SO PLEASE TAKE NOTE NO RESPONSIBILITY WILL BE TAKEN IF A PROBLEM WITH CUSTOMS OCCURS.

 

RESERVES

 

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL A RESERVE PRICE, WHEN APPLIED,  BE REVEALED AS IT IS UNFAIR TO OTHER BIDDERS, SO PLEASE DON'T BOTHER CONTACTING ME TO FIND OUT WHAT IT IS AS YOU MAY BE OFFENDED BY NO REPLY.

 

AUCTION FORMAT

 

ITEMS LISTED IN AN AUCTION FORMAT ARE JUST THAT AND NOT SUBJECT TO 'BUY-IT-NOW' ENQUIRERIES, HOWEVER I AM WILLING TO LISTEN TO ANY OFFER WHICH IS SUBSTANCIALLY OVER THE START PRICE, HOWEVER PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ASKING FOR A B.I.N. ON AN AUCTION ITEM UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO MAKE AN OFFER AS YOU MAY BE OFFENDED BY NO REPLY.

 

PAYMENT

 

PAYMENT MUST BE MADE WITHIN 7 DAYS FROM THE END OF THE SALE FAILURE TO DO SO WILL MEAN A REPORT TO EBAY.

 

IN THE UK I WOULD PREFER PAYMENT BY CHEQUE (TO KEEP COSTS DOWN).

 

HOWEVER I CAN STILL ALSO ACCEPT PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL OR UK POSTAL ORDERS - I CAN ACCEPT OTHER FORMS OF PAYMENT PLEASE CONTACT ME TO FIND OUT WHICH. I WILL DISPATCH GOODS ON CLEARANCE OF ANY OF THE ABOVE (ON THE FIRST OF THE ABOVE SPECIFIED DAYS).

 

OVERSEAS BUYER'S PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL ONLY (OR OTHER TO BE AGREED).

 

I DO NOT ACCEPT - NON U.K. CHEQUES, NON U.K. MONEY ORDERS (OTHER THAN THAT LISTED ABOVE), SO PLEASE DON'T ASK.

 

PACKING

 

ALL PARCELS ARE WELL PACKED AND PROTECTED WITH STRONG BOXES, BUBBLE WRAP, PACKAGING PEANUTS, AND POLYSTYRENE SHEETING WHERE NECESSARY, HOWEVER IF YOU HAVE EXTRA REQUIREMENTS I WOULD BE HAPPY TO OBLIGE (CHARGES WILL BE MADE ACCORDINGLY). I PACK TO THE VERY BEST OF MY ABILITY, BUT AM CONSTRAINED BY THE 2Kg SMALL PACKAGE LIMIT SO PLEASE BEAR THIS IN MIND WHEN ASKING FOR EXTRA PACKING – SHIPPING IS NOT CHEAP OVER THIS LIMIT.

 

MISCELLANY

 

ANY BUYER WITH LESS THAT 10 FEEDBACKS PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE PLACING A BID.

 

A POSITIVE FEEDBACK WILL BE LEFT ON RECEIPT OF THE SAME, AND IF YOU ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR TRANSACTION PLEASE MENTION ALL OR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING WHICH ARE NOW THE eBAY FEEDBACK CRITERIA -

   * ITEM AS DESCRIBED.

   * COMMUNICATION.

   * DISPATCH TIME.

   * POSTAGE & PACKAGING.

 

ONLY BID IF YOU ACCEPT THE ABOVE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. SO PLEASE READ THEM CAREFULLY AS THEY ARE BINDING.

 

DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME IF YOU NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND IF YOU REQUIRE ADDITIONAL PHOTOGRAPHS I WILL BE HAPPY TO FORWARD THEM, HOWEVER I REQUIRE 24 HOURS NOTICE (BEFORE THE END OF THE SALE) TO DO THIS - IN OTHER WORDS PLEASE DON'T CONTACT ME ON THE LAST FULL DAY OF THE SALE AS I WILL BE UNABLE TO FORWARD THEM AT THIS LATE DATE.
