Vintage Decorative Hand Painted English Plaster Wall Plaque F

Circa 1940s/50s

Marked 'John Chapman'

A vintage plaster of paris, hand painted, decorative wall plaque. These were everywhere in the 1940s, every suburban English home had one hanging on the wall, a Metroland favourite, yet little is known about them. They were cheap and cheerful, ususally showed an idyllic rustic English country scene, and were often designed by Usher or Chapman, both royal academy artists. Others were cheaper copies or reproductions of their originals.

Worldwide Dispatch - I am happy to quote for International Shipping.

For items under 2.00 Kg weight I use International signed for Royal Airmail. You can always ask me for a quote before buying.

Australian, Canadian, and US Buyers may be surprised to see a 'catchall' entry of £50.00 for International Shipping. Rest assured, this is not what you will pay. EBay require I put an amount here to allow maximised visibility for my listing on your home eBay sites. It would be too much work to enter accurate P&P data for each of my listings. I will (of course) only invoice you for realistic P&P charges and am happy to quote these in advance.

I sometimes offer a basic Airmail Postage to international locations. This is not 'signed for', and so does not meet eBay and PayPal protection and tracking recommendations. However, if YOU are prepared to take the slight risk of non-delivery, this will save you £4.95 GBP on airmail postage prices, regardless of package size. This risk can be worth taking for low value items. Most UK originated air mail is in the hands of the host country after 36 hours. Subsequent delays or losses are then out of the hands of the usually reliable UK postal services. Thus the offer is dependent on the perceived reliability of the postal service in the destination country.

Heavy & large items - International Shipping.

Items over 2.0 kg weight (And large items over 60 cm long) are in a different international postage category. I strongly recommend that overseas bidders & buyers contact me first for a shipping estimate, to avoid embarrassing surprises. These items can get quite expensive to ship worldwide as the weight or volume increases. I mostly use UPS or DHL couriers, as they are cheaper, and far quicker than the old 'surface' mail category. Such items are insured, tracked and signed for.

Do I offer 'Signed for' delivery in the UK?

UK 'Signed for' £0.77 Extra
Not on my initial invoice, but I always ask UK buyers to contact me if they want 'signed for' delivery. If you choose not to pay for this, then I personally believe you are tacitly agreeing to join me in taking a very small risk. EBay and PayPal rules technically insist on proof of delivery. This means that to fully protect myself, I should also insist on 'signed for' postage. This raises the postage cost on every single item - especially absurd on small, or low value items. In reality the risk is small, as total loss is rare in the UK, and I pack as carefully as I can to avoid breakage.

I am happy to combine postage.

I promise to give you full advantage of combined postage - in fact UK internal parcel pricing intervals are such that the inclusion of an extra item may not incur extra postal charge.


What can you expect from me?

I have 4 postage days, Monday through to Thursday. Items with payment cleared by 10.00 am will get posted same day. I always get proof of postage. Due to other commitments I rarely post Friday or Saturday. I try to notify buyers at every stage of the transaction, but please note that eBay have assumed control of standard email notifications, so I am no longer in control of their frequency or content.

Returns policy

Return policy details
If you talk to me within 7 days, I will accept returns for items I have significantly mis-described or where I have seriously misled you. I will also be sympathetic to honest mistakes on your part. Please bear in mind that I am a sole trader. I run my small business on a very personal basis. I sell mostly unusual Vintage and Antique items, so I am not a chain store style operator with large stock inventory. I usually include lots of photographs, and do not mind answering questions. So please ask if you are unsure.
Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item.
