Seller: saddlemountain (1,435) 100%, Location: Newark, Delaware, Ships to: US, Item: 172422836232 You are bidding on a J.R. WATKINS CO. GARDEN/INSECT DUSTER WWII-Era (c. Late 1930s - Early 1940s) Lovely Decorative Piece Patent date on the spray cap is 1939; considering the army green color scheme, it's likely this unit was made in the 1940s WWII years. Size (approximate): - 38" overall length (44" with pump handle extended) - Pump canister is 3" diameter. Q: Is anything else included with this auction? A: Only what appears in the photos is included. Condition Details: Here you have my best good-faith attempt to disclose all noteworthy issues. Keep in mind, though, that vintage/antique items always show their age -- (Don't we all!?) -- so please expect that there will be something about this item (or lot) that's not perfect. Even if it's "mint" or "new-old-stock," it will still be somehow touched by Father Time. - Beautiful decorative vintage condition. - Tube is straight; body is not dented; canvas handle is still intact; fill cap twists off with no problem. - Army-green paint is mostly intact, with a few small scratches. - Label graphics are very nice. The label has a few nicks, as well as some missing material down the left side (though not too noticeable from the front). - This item is being sold FOR ITS DECORATIVE VALUE, not its functional value. - Pump mechanism still works, but the delivery tube appears to be clogged with old product. - The tiny sprayer cap -- the "business end" -- is not twisting off, due to some oxidation. It would require a penetrating oil to free it. - Again ... very nice decorative value, but I cannot guarantee that you would be able to get it fully working again as a garden duster. As with all my listings (unless explicitly stated otherwise), this comes from a NON-smoking environment. See photos for detail. Important! RETURN POLICY and Shipping Loss/Damage I work hard to maintain Top-Rated eBay Seller status and 100% positive customer feedback by: (a) offering quality vintage merchandise with honest descriptions, and (b) providing outstanding, professional customer service. This item may be returned up to 14 days from purchase for either of two reasons: - Dead on arrival: an item that is broken so it does not function, and the listing did not state this, or - Significantly not as described: A major flaw or discrepancy vs. what was stated in the listing. SORRY, WE CANNOT NEGOTIATE PARTIAL REFUNDS. The merchandise must be returned in its entirety, and in the same condition as it was sent, in order to qualify for a refund. (Of course, shipping loss or damage is a different matter; that is fully covered by insurance.) HOWEVER ... If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the product or service -- even if it may not be grounds for a return -- please contact me first, before leaving negative (or even neutral) feedback. I really do listen, as evidenced by my 100% positive feedback, and I would very much like to know what could have been done better. Thank you! Still Not Sure? Please don't hesitate to contact me. I'll gladly answer any questions you may have, so you can make an informed decision whether to purchase/bid on this item! What I Never Do: - My auction-style listings never have a hidden "reserve" price! - My shipping fees never get inflated to generate hidden profit! (If the shipping seems high on a particular item, please contact me, and I'll gladly explain why it costs that much to ship ... or if there's an error, I'll correct it!) Please view all photos carefully and submit any questions before purchasing or placing your bid. Happy bidding! And, hey!...
