Boxed Set of Antique Silver Pickle Forks. A truly stunning set of Sterling Silver Pickle Forks with Natural Amber Cabochons in Collet settings to the tops. They are hand made, and in very good conditon, with no particular signs of wear. The six smaller ones measure about 124mm in length, the larger one 141mm in length. The amber cabochons measure about 6mm in diameter on the smaller forks, 9mm on the larger one.The shafts are nicely twisted, and the pitchfork style ends are nice and sharp. They are unmarked, but test firmly as high grade silver. They are in their original gold fabirc lined box, which has a split to one corner (easily fixed if you wish to do so) but is otherwise in pretty fine condition considering the age of the thing. These have been safely stored away for decades, and are unique pieces, dating to the early 1920s. We are currently emptying attics and sheds where the family has hoarded for decades, so some interesting stuff is turning up - with quite a few vintage but unused items amongst the treasures.
So, if this is the sort of thing you are interested in, it might be worth keeping an eye on the listings for a while...... Most customers are great, even when things go wrong, as they sometimes will. Our Feedback is good, especially considering that most of the things we sell are delicate breakable vintage items. I post daily, unless the car breaks down or we're flooded, or the mice running this computer escape from their little wheel, or I have a terrible hangover from celebrating with Krug Champagne our latest e bay sale, or something.
All our prices are in Pounds Sterling, the currency used on our small island. NOT dollars, Moon Tokens or little Glass Beads.
We live in a house heated by log fires.......... Yes, I know that sounds stroppy, but its either make this clear at the beginning or lose the will to live...........If you don't, and the item goes missing, I'll send you the proof of posting so that you can make a claim from the post office. But don't rely on this. We will only post to ITALY on an INTERNATIONAL SIGNED FOR service - far to much goes missing otherwise. The post office will not insure delicate items........... It is your responsibility to read the listing properly.
Will, funnily enough, probably not look as if they were made yesterday. Our Vintage and Antique items will have age related wear. We will detail any damage, or serious wear - we will also let you know if the item is, in fact, in mint condition. We would like paying for items you have bought, this is the usual arrangement between buyers and sellers...........
If you can't do that for any good reason, let us know....... Please, we don't bite, much. Tell you it is Gold when it is Brass, Get the maker wrong i. E Wedgewood instead of Marks and Spencers or something similar.
Post Office Exorbitant Price Hike........... Whilst you might think that four out of five on the dsr ratings if you bother to fill them in......... I never do I must admit is good, e bay don't think the same way.
Only 5/5 is ok with them. We do our best to be fair, but we really can't help the post office charges. We can control when we post items, but once in the hands of the post office, there isn't much we can do......... In an attempt to keep overheads down, and prices as low as we can, for the period 1st April until the 1st October 2022, we will be posting twice a week - Mondays and Thursdays instead of every day.......
