Vintage Bristol Vase:
We are looking for a Philanthropicbuyer who understands the value of "paying if forward," generosity the desire to help people in need.
Item details: This beautiful hand painted vase stands 10 inches tall, 7 inches wide and 4-1/2 inches thick and is inexcellent condition for being vintage (possibly near Victorian) in age. The residue on bottom from Antique/sale House stickers and such have not been cleaned to preserve its heritage.
I have searched extensively and can not find any pictures, descriptions and/or sales (past or present) for this vase. It is truly "a one of a kind find." Because it is production number FIVE this adds to the postulationof its rarity as most Bristol items can be found with much higher numbers (due to higher volumes of the designs having been produced).
I am sacrificing this keepsake for my family. Iwas given two items from my Grandmother, this vase and an "old timey" Sunbeam toaster. I will never, ever part with the toaster.
Situation: Sparing the full details, my wife and I have opened our home to people off the street, friends and acquaintances. In doing so we have helped people in dire need for more than 30 years and have helped just shy of 30 individualpeople over the years. Some worked-out great, who's lives turned around, some we are not so sure about. Bottom line: Student loans, mortgage and severe dental and health issues plagueour family but at our age (60 and 64) now we are the ones in need of help.
Reasonable Offers of approximately$80K or so will be considered.Thank you and God bless you always.
