And whilst doing so I hope to transfer my experiences, good and bad, into giving my buyers the best service I can, so you will want to come back for more, time & again! I try to give accurate information on the items that I sell including makers, stamps, style, dates etc. These are my assessment of the items based on research and I try to be as accurate as possible but I won't be 100% of the time! I try to take good photos of all markings but can have a bad day! , so if the specific details/interpretation of marks are important to you please do check them yourself.If you find a mistake, can fill in gaps, or know/find any additional information of interest on a piece, please do share - I won't be offended! I will always try to give important details/measurements & show Hallmarks/other markings/labels, & identified, if possible. I will usually answer within 24hrs. I would like to thank the creators of the following websites which I regularly use in Hallmark & Makers Mark Identification.
I make every effort to upload clear pictures. Some under high magnification, especially to show hallmarks and details or defect/damage or repair. But (even on new items) this can makes even the slightest manufacturing imperfections & specks of dust appear much more prominent even though they may not be visible to the naked eye! So please don't be put off - you can just rest assured that I do not hide any problems!
So if you are unsure whether something is a defect or camera/reflection/lighting effect just ask, though I will have usually mentioned any major defect/damage in the description. Any items/embellishments used in presenting a listing eg.
Jewellery boxes; mats/cloths; jewellery/scarves or additional items of clothing are for display purposes only, unless expressly itemised in the listing. My butterflies come under display items! I know it is really annoying when an item is not the colour you expect: Colours can vary in different light even natural light doesn't always guarantee the correct colour! Purple, when actually it maybe plum! So I will edit photos to make colours as accurate as possible.
But I may also use flash or lighten/darken photos during editing in order to highlight detail (especially necessary on dark clothing, but can alter the colour), & I will note the photo(s) closest to the true colour if need be. Only sell items that I would be happy to receive myself! Uyers should appreciate my items are not new/vintage so expect signs of use" or "condition as expected for age Grrr. Please be assured I will always try to accurately & objectively describe the item, AND any faults, to the best of my ability, & photograph them in the most honest way I can (including close-ups), warts & all!The combination of description + photographs should allow you to form your own objective opinion of the beauty, details. NB Don't be put off by the mention of faults/defects - it in no way means the item is aesthetically displeasing or broken, unless I specifically say that! Also remember magnified images look much worse than you can see by naked eye. Will be clean (possibly excepting coats that need dry cleaning) but may be creased from storage. All damage/signs of use taken into account whether expected for age/use or not - I'll let you decide.

Barely used with minimal signs of wear, in sound overall condition. Maybe an item that has been re-polished/refurbished to a high standard (I will never put excellent on these items).
