ONCE IN A LIFETIME DON BLANDING VERNON KILNS LEILANI/HONOLULU HAWAIIAN CHINA :
I have debated FOR YEARS about what price to list these for. At one time I was asking almost twice this amount knowing that that was over priced but also knowing I collected these one or two pieces of a time for over 30 years and that it is one of the largest known collections of Don Blanding Lei Lani Hawaiian Flowers known. The price I came up with is an estimate of about what I have into this collection WITHOUT increasing the price.I actually don't know how many pieces that are here as there are way too many to fit into one china cabinet. There are about 25-35 or more pieces in boxes. I would guess that this collection is AT LEAST 150 PIECES. It is incredible as a collection. I have had a few dinner parties and it makes an amazing display. There are way too many of these items to list but I will list a few. I will detail you exact sizes and numbers ONLY if you are sincere about offerding on them. It took me 10 years to find a water pitcher in great condition. I have two. It took me five years to find a tumber. I think there are around 18 or more. There is that massive 16 or 17 chop plate. Coffee pitcher, tea pot, salt and pepper shaker and many many dinner plates of all sizes. There are TWO covered casseroles. There is a creamer, a sugar bowl both with lids. There is a covered butter dish. There is a gravy server and two others that could pour dressings, etc.there are serving bowls and serving chop plates of all sizes. There is at least 16 coffee cups and saucers.This is mostly Lei Lani Hawaiian Flowers by Don Blanding. However, I do have about 18 Blue Honolulu pieces I am including with this collection. Because this collection is so large I have no idea what the shipping will cost. It needs to be expertly packed insured and shipped. I live in HAIKU MAUI AND IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME VIEW THIS COLLECTION OR OTHER ITEMS BY TYREE, ERWIN, GILL, HALE PUA, MUNDORFF, CARRE please let me know and you can come by and view it all. Also, you could pick up this collection in person.
MY ESTIMATE OF THE SHIPPING CHARGES IS JUST AN ESTIMATE. THESE WOULD NEED TO BE PROFESSIONALLY PACKED INSURED AND SHIPPED. ALSO PAYPAL ONLY WILL ALLOW PAYMENTS UP TO A CERTAIN AMOUNT SO IT WILL BE A COMBINATION OF PAYPAL AND OTHER PAYMENTS WE CAN ARRANGE.I have used these pieces a few times at very large and also small dinner parties. It makes for a spectacular spread. This is a collection that would be unparalleled in its beauty and uniqueness.
