Description

Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
Seller notes: Hairlines showing on the back and around the edge - old brooch.


 

All of my items belonged to my family and my fiancee's family, especially his grandmother.  I gained my feedbacks because I used to be a business seller and I am proud of them.  I am downsizing as I am not getting any younger and have a life-time of collecting in jewellery and collectables to rehome as I have no-one to pass them on to.  Many of my feedbacks go back to when I was running a business on Ebay.  A few customers have been unpleasant saying I could not gain all those feedbacks from selling my own items.  I have put this on my listings to let everyone know how I obtained them.  I do hope you will find something to your taste.  My mother in particular was a big collector and I am now too old to hang on to these items any longer.  I am happy to answer any questions to the best of my knowledge and belief on any of my items.  Thank you for those that have bought my things and been pleasant to talk to.

HONEST ITEMS HONESTLY PRESENTED

An unusual antique brooch that although there is damage it does not prevent this brooch from being worn and is not very noticeable from the front.  Certainly in the Wedgewood style and a Tree of Life design.  No pieces missing.  Unusual porcelain brooch.   The rim just shows where it was joined, this is not damage.  Check out my other items!

Measures, 1-3/4" x 1-1/2"

Weight 14.3grams

PLEASE NOTE:

I WILL NOT BE LISTING IN DECEMBER.  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU PAY FOR EVERYTHING BY 30TH NOVEMBER AT THE LATEST OR IT WILL BE MID JANUARY BEFORE YOU CAN HAVE YOUR ITEMS POSTED TO YOU.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR CUSTOM.

Please look at the pictures and use a tape measure to check the sizes are okay for you.

Please ask questions before bidding on any points you are not clear about.  Thank you.

  • Not cleaned with harsh cleaners. 
  • UK: This item will be posted Large Letter.  If you want Signed For (old Recorded Delivery) or Special Delivery these posts always an option.
  • I try to be as accurate as possible but all weights and measurements and ages must be classed as approximate.

I am still willing to do a combined rate post.  Each combined rate will be assessed on weight and packaging needed - just ask.  No set combined rate but I am very flexible and like to help my customers. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CLEANING TIP:  For a really cheap Silver Cleaner put the items to be cleaned in a drinks glass (solid silver only) and then Baking Powder - about a teaspoon for a glass - top up with BOILING water.  It will really clean where a brush and cloth cannot reach.  It will not eat away at the silver as some silver dips do.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Only Special Delivery for the UK and Airsure for International buyers carries insurance for jewellery.  If you choose not to pay for insurance then your item is not insured against loss and it would be unfair to try and claim from the seller.  I have to point this out because many people think all items are insured in the UK and International posts - this is not so.  Please check further on the Royal Mail website for complete confidence that the correct post has been selected by you.


 
  • Items will be sent sensitively wrapped according to the needs of the item.
I will only combine according to weight, post and packing in a 7 day period and if not combining please pay within 3 days of auction ending.
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For information:
  • UK: There is no insurance for jewellery unless sent Special Delivery.  
  • The Recorded Delivery options just prove I posted out and when delivery takes place.  Information regarding this post is obtainable at your Post Office or on their web page.
  • INTERNATIONAL: Only Signed For International will insure jewellery, please consider the option.
  • Items must be on one invoice and payment within 7 days please.

Please satisfy yourself before buying by studying the pictures and asking questions.

Conversion: 1 inch = 25.4mm or 1mm = 0.0393 of an inch.
                                     0.3 or 30cm = 1 foot.


Please read my terms and conditions below and contact me if you have a problem.

Thank you for taking an interest in my items.
PLEASE LOOK AT THE PICTURE(S) AND ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING.  COULD YOU PLEASE USE A TAPE MEASURE TO CHECK SIZES.  REMEMBER YOU ARE BUYING VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE, ITEMS NOT BRAND NEW ITEMS AND NORMAL WEAR IS NOT A DEFECT.  THANK YOU

I am happy to accept Paypal and you may pay with any card that Paypal accepts.  I do not take card payments privately I am not a business seller.   If Paypal does not accept your card then I am sorry, neither do I. 

UK customers can pay with Paypal, personal cheque, postal order, banker’s draft or building society cheque.

I always declare defects and look hard to see them but I am human and if I have missed something that is a problem please contact me before leaving bad feedback. 

All weights of items and carat weight of stones is approximate.  To accurately ascertain carat weight the gem would need to be removed from its setting this I was told by a Goldsmith when inquiring about this.  

Items are shown larger to display the item fairly for its quality as well as to highlight any defects.


"Today hallmarking is governed by the Hallmarking Act of 1973, which has simplified them and made them easier to understand.  The Act came into force on 1 January 1975 and governs the hallmarking of silver, gold and platinum at the four UK assay offices 0 London, Birmingham, Sheffield and Edinburgh.  The main points to note are:

  • Hallmarks must now consist of a maker's (or sponsor's) mark, the standard mark, the assay mark and the date letter. (Edinburgh uses the lion rampant for sterling silver.)
  • All silver items weighing more than 7.8g must be hallmarked (1g for gold, 0.5g for platinum.)"

I AM ONE OF THE 'GOOD GUYS'

Please read my feedbacks, I am proud of them.

Serious bidders please who are Ebay registered only and willing to abide by my terms and conditions. All measurements and weights are approximate. I do not guarantee that stones in jewellery are original to that piece of jewellery; but I do guarantee that all stones are present unless stated otherwise. Please remember old glues are not super glues; do not use spirit cleaners or soak in soapy water as this will loosen stones. NEVER put soft stones like Opals or Pearls into spirit or soapy cleaner far better to get them professionally cleaned by your local jeweller.  I also always recommend a complete clean and service for watches.

BUSINESS SELLERS: It is fine for you to resell my items. It is not fine for you to use my pictures or descriptions. This is illegal and against Ebay selling rules.
