Seller: the*stellar*seller (3,484) 100%, Location: Sacramento, California, Ships to: US, Item: 392303509193 VINTAGE / OLD ARTS & CRAFT STYLE*~* HAMMERED COPPER *~***~ SMALL TRAY or PLATTER ~**With HandlesNo ReserveITEM: Vintage / Old Arts & Crafts Style Hammered Copper Small Tray or Platter ~ With Handles SIZE: Tray / Platter is relatively small and measures approximately: 10 & 1/2" x 8" rectangular ~ Just over 1/2" in height from base ITEM DETAILS: This auction features a vintage / old hammered copper tray or platter. It is relatively small, which leads me to believe it may have been decorative. The entire piece, though, does appear to be solid copper. It is hammered throughout the entire piece -- including the handles. Unlike some of the pieces I have seen, the two handles on this piece appear to have been soldered to the base rather than screwed in. Although I did look, I did not find any maker's marks or names. It would make a wonderful addition to any Arts & Crafts collection! CONDITION: FAIR ~ I am considering the age and use of this item when factoring the condition rating. With age and use considered, I feel this platter or tray would likely be considered in Fair condition overall. As the pictures suggest, this tray is heavily tarnished (or bears a heavy patina). It is also somewhat dusty and soiled at this point too (it has been in my own storage for several years now). I will leave any additional cleaning or polishing to the new owner. There are definite surface scratches seen under the patina, which I suspect may become more obvious once the tray is thoroughly polished. Generally speaking, I do not feel these will interfere with it being used or displayed, but -- since they may be visible to the naked eye -- I did certainly want to note it for accuracy. I did check the handles and did not see any major issues or damage. They appear to be still firmly soldered in place, as well. In reviewing the rest of the tray, I do not see any major damage, either. If there is anything I may have missed where the condition is concerned -- and you would like to ask a question -- please feel free to message me and I will do what I can to answer. With age and use considered, I would still say this tray or platter rates in Fair condition overall. AGE/ DATE MADE: Although exact age is unknown, I do believe this tray is vintage. I have personally had it for about 4+ years now. As noted above, the tarnishing is also quite dark, which I do feel is another indicator to the age, too. PLEASE NOTE: I CAN NO LONGER ISSUE "PARTIAL REFUNDS." Unfortunately -- in the last year alone -- I have had more requests for partial refunds (for often unfounded or unproven issues) than in the last 13+ years combined that I have been on eBay. On high-priced items, I usually insure an item at my own expense. If an item is damaged during shipping, we will need to go through the PO insurance because of that (or FedEx/UPS -- depending on the item). I have a very lenient return policy, so if you would like to return an item, please just let me know you are doing so and make sure to add tracking to the item to protect both of us (return shipping will be at the expense of the buyer). As with my note regarding fine metals directly below this, I felt it was important I address this issue due to the consistent increase in requests -- requests that I will no longer be able to accommodate. Again, nearly all of my items are eligible for returns so please just contact me if you'd like to return an item and I'll be happy to work with you (occasionally I will list "bulk" junk/craft jewelry auctions and those cannot be returned for the simple reason that there is just too much involved). I do apologize for having to make this disclaimer, but I do feel it is necessary. Thank you for understanding! Special note on fine metals: Silver & Gold prices can fluctuate wildly from day to day, week to week, and even minute to minute. With that said, I have become very wary of is people purchasing fine metals from me and then turning around and claiming that, a) either the gold or silver price has changed or, b) my scale is off by 0.1 of a gram, and I should therefore refund that tenth of a gram (in money) back into the respective Paypal account. I have purchased a brand new digital scale and will no longer refund for tenth of a gram difference OR for gold / silver prices changes on the stock market. If I have made a large error in weight I will -- of COURSE -- continue to honor my very lenient full return policy, but will no longer refund for either market price changes OR tenth of a gram weight variations from scale to scale. If you would like a full return, simply return the exact item(s) back, and I will refund your entire purchase price. I will no longer refund partial payments, though. Please keep this in mind while bidding and, more importantly, I am very sorry for even having to post this due to the few problems I've had. With that said, please feel free email if you should have any questions and thank you very much for understanding!IMPORTANT INFORMATION: PLEASE READ!~ GENERAL ~*** I do my very best to accurately describe the items I sell her on eBay; listing their imperfections as much as their attributes. I always note flaws so there are no surprises when an item is received. The items I offer are nearly always used, though, and therefore are not in, "mint" condition. In fact, I never use the word mint to describe an item. With that said, please do not misunderstand by my very low opening bids. They almost never truly reflect the actual value of any item. In fact, they are priced in such a way because I like to keep with the fun and excitement of an actual auction.~ PAYMENT & SHIPPING ~*** I kindly ask that payment for purchase(s) be made within 5 days of the close of the auction. Occasionally, I will offer a "Buy It Now" option: in those cases, payment is due as soon as the "Purchase Now" button is chosen. An automatic NPB (Non-Paying Bidder) notification will be sent after the 5th day if payment is not received. Paypal is currently the only form of payment I accept. I am more than happy to combine shipping on items, please just contact me prior to the auction's end. I can then send a combined invoice which will save you some money and me some time! :) Where shipping is concerned, I do my very best to ship items within 1 business day after payment is received.~ PURCHASES & RETURNS ~*** I strive to make your buying experience with me as excellent as I can. With that said, please contact me if you are unhappy! I will do everything possible to correct the problem! On nearly all of my items, if you are dissatisfied with your purchase, you are welcome to return it for a full refund within two weeks (14 days) from the day it was received. Return shipping will be paid by the buyer, though. In certain cases, I may sell an item for a close friend of family member that does not belong to me. Those are usually the only instances that I do not allow returns. I figure, if the item does not belong to me, I should allow that decision to be made by the person who does own it.~ SORRY, I NO LONGER SHIP INTERNATIONALLY! ~*** THANKS SO MUCH FOR VISITING MY AUCTION! PLEASE CHECK OUT MY OTHER other items! I WOULD ALSO LOVE IT IF YOU ADDED ME TO YOUR favorites list, TOO! THANK YOU & HAVE A GREAT WEEK! :) *** Condition: This tray appears to be in Fair condition for the age and use. It does have some age wear seen, including some surface scratches. There is definite evidence of tarnishing to the copper seen to all sides of it, as well. I will leave any polishing and/or cleaning to the new owner, though.
