Please do not expect store bought perfect new items! We will never guarantee our items to be in perfect condition, but then you would be paying department store prices!If items are clearly marked, we do not have it acid tested, especially if markings include designers markings. Unmarked items we have tested. If natural hairline internal cracks in stones, loose settings (that normally happen over the years) bother you, or expect perfect, then you do not want Vintage. Even jewelry that is brand new tends to have flaws. This is all Antique Art Deco/Nouveau, Victorian, Vintage and newer Collectible jewelry, all newer items have been stored and are still part of the humongous estate collection and may have been worn, but minimally. Silver jewelry with stones sometimes loosen over the years, and stones shift and accumulate hairline cracks. This is part of the charm of vintage jewelry.

We do not list anything that we would not wear ourselves!A wonderful piece of Victoriana! Many kept greeting cards for Christmas past and present and was a crafty way to display them. This has hand sewn panels with a working lid that was also hand sewn. Nick on top in a raised picture. There is one panel that we can still see part of the signature. It is decorated inside out with various greeting cards, mostly Christmas. All sewn with red yarn. Octagon shaped with a total diameter of approx. All in all very nice condition. Normal wear and fading, but we think everything still very colorful.
How fun this would be to display not only during the holidays, but year round! Take a look at pictures! All condition of items are nice and may only need a gentle cleaning due to dust from not being worn or stored away for quite a few years.
