Greetings from p6321955!
This is a Vintage Tabletop Croquet Set for 8 Players. The set includes:
Eight Wooden Mallets - all of the heads are tight on their sticks, show no signs of having had colored paints on them and measure about 10 1/2" long,
Eight Wooden Balls - all of the wood appears unchipped but the colored paint shows wear and each measures about 1 1/2 inches in diameter
Two Wooden Goalposts - both are weighted with multi-colored stripes that show wear and measure about 3 1/4" tall
Nine Metal Wickets - each arch is a metal wire painted in a peachy, off white color with cast metal feet. The wickets show paint loss and some of the metal feet are bent or broken
Ten Metal Brackets - to hold the cloth boundary tape
Twenty foot long boundary tape - in excellent condition with metal "buckle" that has two "teeth" to hold it taught when set up
The dovetailed wooden case measures about 15 1/8" x 8" x 3 1/4" and has a couple of small pieces split off from the top. It is not marked which leads me to believe that this may have had a paper label on it when it was new. The set is in very good, used condition.
Please note: Glass items will not be shipped on Thursdays or Fridays
ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS: Any package with a value of $25 or a weight of 4 pounds or more MUST be sent Priority Mail International. VAT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE SHIPPING COSTS and will be collected by the delivering agent when it arrives at your door. First Class International has no tracking or insurance available. If the item gets lost or damaged you simply have to file a case with Paypal and since I have no tracking number Paypal automatically decides in your favor and takes the money out of my account. Then I am out a beautiful item and all the money:( At least with Priority International I can file an insurance claim, in the worst case scenario. I try my best to accommodate International buyers by using First Class on any package valued less than $25 but it is I who is taking all the risk in doing so. I refuse to take this risk on any items valued at or over $25. An additional shipping option is available for items valued under $25.00USD, please contact me for details.
For everyone, especially those who are new to my auctions:
The items I list are from auctions and estate sales. I do clean things up before I list them but there is no telling what lingering odors will crop up after the item is packaged for shipment. If you are terribly allergic to smoke, pet dander, musty scents, then you should take this into consideration before bidding. I cannot guarantee that any item has come from a smoke-free/pet-free home! (I am very sensitive to musty odors and have stopped buying ephemera for this reason!)
I am not an expert in this items field nor am I a professional photographer. I describe the item to the best of my abilities and try to take good pictures. Please feel free to email any questions including requests for additional pictures. I will do my best to help and provide you with what you need to bid. With that said, this item is sold "as is" with no warranties.
I use "Shipping Calculator" to determine the fairest and most accurate shipping cost. I have added, depending on item size and weight, to this shipping cost to cover packing material, labeling and labor.
If you are bidding on more than one of my auctions and the auctions end within a week of each other, I will happily combine orders to save on shipping and handling costs.
Please note: Glass items will not be shipped on Thursdays or Fridays.
Please contact me or see the “My World” page for "Pick Up" options and information.
I do expect payment within 7 days of the auction’s end.
Refunds will not include the original shipping and handling costs unless other arrangements are made before returning the item. Good communication is a MUST for ALL returns!
With all that said and done....most importantly......enjoy!!!
