A WONDERFUL GERMAN VICTORIAN SPUN COTTON/ PRESSED COTTON ELEPHANT ORNAMENT. HE MEASURES 3 ½" LONG AND IS 2 1/4" TALL. HE IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. HE STILL HAS HIS ORIGINAL STICK TUSKS, HAND PAINTED EYES AND RED LEATHER BLANKET AND FOUR MEDAL LIKE STUDS ON THE CORNERS. HE IS VERY CLEAN WITH NO TEARS AND STILL HAS SOME OF THE DUSTING OF TINY MICA CHIPS TO ADD GLIMMER ON YOUR TREE. FROM THE LATE 1800'S EARLY 1900'S. HE IS A RARE ORNAMENT, ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION. I FOUND HIM LISTED AND PICTURED IN GEORGE JOHNSON’S CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS, LIGHTS, AND DECORATIONS, VOL II, PAGES 293 AND 305. MR. JOHNSON VALUED HIM AT $280 - 310 ~ THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET HIM AT A GREAT PRICE!

Please keep in mind that vintage/antique items are OLD ~ 50 to 100 years old. Thus, they will probably NOT be perfect. They may have paint loss, glitter loss, mica loss, dents, bumps, scratches. They have usually all been used in the past and thus have the patina of age and use. As with all my auctions there are lots of pictures for judging coloring and condition - don t forget to supersize them for your best view.********************Almost all my items are older and used and come from estate sales, and unless described as perfect, may have to be cleaned; polished, etc., to look their best. Because they are items from bygone days, I cannot guarantee that they are from a smoke free or pet free environment. Every effort has been made to describe the item as accurately as possible. I urge bidders to examine all photos and descriptions carefully and to e-mail me with any questions, concerns, or clarifications prior to the end of auction. If I have made a mistake, refund is for item price not postage. ******************** I do not end auctions early, please don't ask. It is unfair to others that are also looking at that item. ******************** Thanks for looking at my auction, please look at my other auctions for more vintage items and good luck in the hunt for your piece of the past.

Payment Options Back to Top
In accordance with the new e-bay paperless policy, PayPal only accepted - pay with PayPal via PayPal account, e-check or credit card. Ebay will send you an invoice at the end of the auction. If you need any special handling, want insurance or want to upgrade the shipping method, contact me as soon as possible. Payment must be received within 5 days or item will reported to ebay as an unpaid item. If payment is going to be delayed, just notify me before the 5th day. If you want to delay payment because you will be bidding on another item, please notify me before the 5 days are over to avoid an unpaid item report.


Shipping Back to Top
Professionally packaged - if anything, I over package. I always look for the least expensive method of shipping to save buyers money on shipping. Shipping charges in the U.S. usually include delivery confirmation. I also combine multiple items in shipping whenever possible - just let me know that you are planning to bid on additional items. Shipping should be quoted at the top except for items weighing over 1 lb, then there should be a shipping calculator for your use - if not, please e-mail for shipping information. (Shipping may include a very slight charge for handling). In general, I ship Mondays thru Thursdays. I often do not ship on Fridays or Saturdays as those are the days that I am going to estate auctions & sales, etc. to get more items for my buyers. If you need your package quickly, just let me know.


Return Policy Back to Top
Returns are accepted only if I have grossly misrepresented the item. Refunds are for the cost of the item only. Return postage paid by the buyer. Returns must be made within 14 days.


International Buyers Please Note Back to Top
Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer s responsibility. Please check with your country s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as gifts - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
