Seller: sjm13b (369) 100%, Location: Trumbull, Connecticut, Ships to: US, Item: 201729605454 Vintage cannonball top fireplace andirons, solid brass or bronze. Up for sale is a Vintage pa1ir of cannonball top fireplace andirons. Solid brass or bronze from top to bottom (magnet won't stick to any of it). Cast iron brackets in the back. Note that the back foot on the bracket has been cut off, so you should only use these with a fireplace grate to hold the logs. These appear to be pretty old, considering that the nut that holds them together is a square nut that is neither square nor a standard size, so they may have been hand made. Lots of patina. Polish them if you want, but they look great as is. You can't buy patina like this. It should be a crime to polish them. 14-1/2" tall, 15" front to back. The feet sit 8" wide. The balls on top are 3-3/4" diameter. Note that they are being shipped disassembled, so as they say "some assembly required", but since here is only one nut on each, it should be pretty easy. The feet are installed upside down for packaging, so just unscrew them, reverse them and screw on the bracket. I can provide remote technical support if needed. Disassembled, I was able to get them into a la1rge flat rate box for cheap shipping anywhere in the US, so when you compare prices, include shipping. Some of these are shipping for $50. The Fine Print Note that any terms and conditions specified above, such as local pickup only, supercede conditions in the "fine print". Bidding When you bid on an item, your bid is your contract. You are bidding to own it. All questions should be asked prior to bid placement. Do not bid if you are not sure. Questions will be answered as soon as possible, Monday through Saturday. Questions during the work day will be answered at lunchtime or after work. My employer is not paying me to eBay. Do not assume anything. I will try my best to describe items, however I do not know everything about everything (just ask my wife). If there is something you want to know, ask. I will be more than happy to answer to the best of my ability. Confirmation and payment Winning bidder must confirm bid by email within three days after auctions close. Payment must be made within seven days of the Auctions close. . Payment must be made by Paypal (hey, it sucks, but it's their rules, not mine). Unless the exact ACTUAL shipping costs are specified in advance, PLEASE DO NOT SEND PAYMENT UNTIL YOU RECEIVE EMAIL FROM ME INDICATING THE ACTUAL TOTAL. Do not assume that ebay's shipping calculator is correct. Shipping Your ship to address must match your Paypal address. If you do not have a confirmed address I will not accept Paypal payments. Shipping may be made by USPS or other carrier. If it is cost effective to ship in a USPS flat rate box, we will do so. Overnight shipping is available for the cost of the overnight shipping plus an additional fee to cover my additional expenses and time. Shipping charges include insurance and delivery confirmation. Per new ebay regulations, you are not allowed to decide for yourself whether or not you want insurance, so the cost of insurance is included in the shipping costs. Damage claims are the responsibility of the buyer. I will offer assistance with claims against the carrier, if possible, but it is the buyer's responsibility to deal with the shipper for damage claims. Any claims of damage during shipping must be immediately reported to the shipper. Where possible, multiple items will be combined to save shipping costs, so take a look at my other items! NO SHIPMENTS TO P.O. BOXES. If an item says "Local pickup only", it means just that. I generally ship items on the Friday or Saturday after the auction ends. I usually cannot get to the post office during normal work days. I don't control the post office's hours. International No international sales. Returns All items sold AS IS. Returns are accepted ONLY if the item was not as described in the auction. We take great care to be accurate in our descriptions. Buyer must contact us to initiate a return within 3 days of receiving the item. Buyer is responsible for return shipping charges. Shipping, packing and other charges are not refundable, only the purchase price. Fees We do not charge "handling" fees. Packing fees may apply to items that require packing materials. Fees will be reasonable. I am not here to make money on shipping/handling/packing fees. Extraordinary effort on my part (such as overnight shipping) may carry additional fees. Pickup If you wish to pick up your purchase in person, please contact me to make arrangements and indicate your method of payment prior to pick-up. Feedback Feedback gladly given when buyer gives feedback. I reserve the right to reject bids from buyers with excessive negative feedback, at my discretion.
