Offered at auction is a silver plated champagne saucer manufactured in Spain by Valero.
This goblet stands 5 5/8 inches tall with a 4 1/4 inch mouth
It weighs 7.7 oz.
The condition is very good to excellent. I found no dings, dents, scratches or other deformities that are usually found on estate silver.
At the time of listing, we have several of these Gothic style goblets in stock. This includes cocktail goblets, wine goblets, water goblets and champagne saucers. Should you want four or more of these, contact us to work out a deal with shipping.
Per new EBay rules, the shipping insurance is included in the shipping costs.
I have had requests to ship in a padded envelope instead of a box...while this may save some in shipping costs, it is a risky endeavor with delicate sterling items, so please don't ask. I usually ship Priority Mail flat-rate (mainly because they supply the boxes which can get obscenely expensive)
As always, shipping amounts are estimates only and I always refund any overages that may occur. If you cannot understand the reasoning for my shipping method, and will later complain that my shipping costs are too high, please buy from someone else... there's plenty of sellers that just don't care. I take great pride in the condition of the sterling items that I am trying to protect, and I am determined to get them to you, the buyer, in the same exceptional condition.
Please view the pictures carefully. I generally take my photographs outside in sunlight to accurately depict the colors and conditions of the items I am offering. So if you see any marks or colors that look like damage... it is the sun, the clouds, or me.
When it is safely possible, I try to combine shipments to save on postage and packaging requirements. There are some instances where that may not be possible, so if you have won more than one auction, please wait until you receive an invoice from me.

I try to fully and faithfully disclose any irregularities I find but I am far from perfect and some things may escape my detection. When damage (no matter how minute) I try to make sure that it is clearly depicted in the photos. Also, while I thoroughly wash and hand-polish every piece of sterling that I sell, I do not have the time or the inclination to get out a toothbrush and clean every little nook and cranny of the more intricate designs unless build-up or tarnish is excessive.
I believe that I have described the above auction offering accurately and in detail. Please consult the photographs or Email me with any questions.
My word is my bond. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me within 3 business days to arrange return and a refund of your purchase price. Shipping charges are not refundable.
The sterling that I am currently listing are not my property and as such, I am unable to make a 'deal' or entertain a 'Best Offer' scenario. They belong to a friend who is in the precious metals business. He has a warehouse that is stockpiled with sterling items that he has purchased over the last 28 years of business, including more than 100 different silver flatware sets. With the soaring price of silver, he had decided to send them all to the smelter to be melted down.
Instead, I convinced him to let me try to offer them on Ebay so that they would not be destroyed. I know that there are silver lovers out there that wish to harken back to the days of genteel dining and gracious living. Besides, I have come to genuinely appreciate anything that is older than me and still survives.
Due to recent complications with International bidders and shipping policies, I will only ship via Express Mail International with full insurance. I WILL NOT alter the final bid price on the required customs forms.
