Click images to enlargeDescription PLEASE CLICK ON “READ MORE” AND READ FULL DESCRIPTION AND SEE MORE PHOTOS! I just got back from the “World’s Longest Yard Sale” along Route 127. As we do every year, we shopped beautiful rural Western Ohio. I came back with a truck full and boy, do I have great new items for you. Loooooots of farm sales, so that means primitive antiques, folk art, Americana, - you name it – there’s something for everyone and I’ll be listing for weeks, so keep checking! Also, be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of all of my listings as I usually have MORE photos down there, too! AND…I might as well say it from the get-go. ALL of my items this week are DIRTY, DUSTY, COBWEBBY AND DEBRISY, all barn lived for a long time, and ALL will need a good cleaning. I do not clean or mess with as found patina in any way. Also please note that I’ve made some changes to my payment and combined shipment policies, which you can see highlighted in my detail below.
I always snatch up old Vantine's pieces when I see them, and they are getting harder and harder for me to find. The company was called Vantine's - The Oriental Store and it was located in New York City. Ashley Abraham Vantine came to NYC in the mid 1800s and started to import goods from China and Japan. You can find much information in research if you like, but what I seem to find most are the beautiful incense burners that they used to sell. This piece is made from cast grey metal that a magnet does not stick to and it has a worn gold patina that is very dark - I would call it rich, and I think it's the icing on the cake for this old incense burner. The burner has a small image of a seated Buddha on the top, and 4 open mouthed animals below him to allow the smoke from the burner out. The 8 sides body has fancy relief details on all of the panels and even the neck underneath and the base have a fancy leaf and vine relief design. It measures 2 5/8" widest at the base, 2 3/8' wide at the mouth of the burner, it measures 5 3/4" tall and it weighs 1 lb, so it's hefty for its size. It's in excellent solid and sturdy condition structurally with no cracks, dings or structural issues that I can find. There's the finish wear mentioned above and small light scratches and scrapes to the finish that you have to look for to see. That's the most of it, and I think it looks great - see my photos and if you agree. The bottom is marked Vantine's 1201, and then it has a hand written mark that looks to be in pencil and looks to read, SAT/150. At least I think that's what it says. Looking at the photos of the inside of the well, you can see that the former owner used this as a candle holder and burned a candle inside. You can see wax residue inside of the well and the bottom metal piece of the candle there, too. You will be able to chip it out and remove it if you wanted to, or planned to use the burner, but you can't see it from the outside if you are just going to use it as a decorative piece. I know it has a story to tell!
Customer Satisfaction is extremely important to me. If you receive an item and are not satisfied in any way, please contact me before leaving response.
If you are using a phone or tablet to look at listings, you may not be seeing full descriptions – please make sure you are – I list sizes, condition and many photos on all of my items – so if you are not seeing that, you’re not seeing all I have about the listing.
Please ask if you have any questions, or feel free to inform me if you have any information about one of my listings. As with any of my items, if you ever need extra photos, let me know. My white stool, my rug and anything else that you see other than the item discussed are not included in the sale!
PAYMENT IS DUE IMMEDIATELY(SAME DAY) AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN sale.
I’m happy to combine shipments for you, when possible - depending upon size and weight, it might not always be possible, though. If you win an item and plan to offer on another, please email me to let me know that you are looking at other items, hold to pay for the first item and request a combined shipping invoice once you’ve won the other item/s. If you pay for an item, I have to ship it, I cannot hold for items that close another day, if you pay for the first item. Unless you ask me for an invoice earlier, I will invoice on Sunday for multiple items purchased the week prior, or after 5 days have passed since the item that you won has closed. 5 (FIVE) days from the closing of the FIRST bought item will be the longest I can wait time wise to combine, and I ask for immediate payment after invoice for combined orders. I NOW HAVE 'S UNPAID ITEM ASSISTANT SET TO AUTOMATICALLY FILE A CLAIM FOR PAYMENT 8 DAYS AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN sale, WHEN NO PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE - PLEASE KNOW. Please know that some items cannot be combined, though, do to size, weight, or safety of the items. Many items that are set to ship in USPS FLAT RATE boxes; I cannot combine due to size restrictions. Please look at the shipping alternatives in the listings. I only mail USPS and pack in the best manner that we feel safe – I cannot change shipment methods after the close of an sale (i.e. rolling an old map to save money when I have it set to ship flat), especially if I feel the requested method is not safe. Again, I only ship USPS and charge actual cost to ship only. I ship within one business day of receipt of your payment, unless there’s a holiday that closes the post office, or I will notify you otherwise. As I shop for treasures on the weekends, I most often do not ship on Saturday. Most items closing and paid for on Friday will be shipped on Monday.
Many of my items come from local rural estate sales and sales. They are coming right from the barn or attic to you - dust, dirt, cobwebs and all! I do not clean and polish before I sell – they are in the condition found, as you see in my photos, and I leave the patina exactly as it was when I bought the item. I do my best to photo and describe all thoroughly.
Please email me before offerding if you do not use PayPal, as Paypal is the only requested method of payment on this listing.
With postage rates increasing regularly, I am shipping more and more items Parcel Select. Parcel Select travels by land or rail and the packages do not leave the regional post office until they fill up a bin going in the same direction (so the estimated delivery is truly only an estimate – not exact). The post office estimates 5-7 days, but it can go up higher, sometimes even 3-4 weeks in peak mailing times like the holidays. I always provide a tracking number, so you can see where your item is on any day.
Sales tax will be added for states as required.
…and thanks so much for looking, I appreciate having you as a customer! Pictures sell!
