Antique GLOBE-BOSSE World Furniture TIGER OAK Wardrobe!


BIDDERS BEWARE OF Bid Snipers : "Bid Snipers" use software to bid in the final few seconds of the auction to take over the auction and win the item at the lowest possible price. You will not be able to beat a bid sniper program at the last minute. The best way to improve your chances on something you really want is to determine the maximum amount you are willing to pay and enter that amount. That method also helps avoid missing a bid or forgetting to bid on the item. eBay will enter your bid automatically at the LOWEST possible price for you. That means if your max bid is $50, but your current bid is only at $20 and nobody else bids then you still get it for $20 even though you entered $50. If you end up losing the auction it will NOT be because you have been had by a Bid Sniper - it will be because it went beyond what you were willing to pay ITEM DESCRIPTION:

RARE Antique (very early 1900s) "Globe-Bosse World Furniture Co." (Evansville, IN) Tiger Oak Wardrobe Vanity with Mirror in Good condition!!!

Piece looks very nice for its age! No major damage and the only issues include no key, minor scratches & scuffs & t, and some age spots? on the inside backdrop of the mirror (see closeups). Casters are wood and were inside one of the drawers so I'm assuming they are original to it. Back still has the original delivery stickers on it.

Measures 70" tall (to top of mirror) x 45" long x 20-3/4" deep. It's hard to find any piece from this company and mine is currently the only one available on ebay.

FREIGHT SHIPPING INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE READ: Payment is due within 5 days of auction ending. U.S. Shipping only. PICKUPS are recommended or item will have to ship via FREIGHT. Approximate weight is 275-lbs (could be more, could be less). Bidder will have to contact a freight company for a quote as they prefer to deal with and quote the customer rather than the seller. You may use any company you wish so feel free to search, but you can try the following since their rates are reasonable: Navis . If the company needs it palleted (we do not crate) we charge a reasonable $75 palleting fee because of its size and the fact that it will have to be surrounded with cardboard and thick styrofoam. Truck MUST also have a lift-gate on it, no exceptions. We can only hold items for up to 2 weeks after they sell or we charge a $10 storage fee per week after that for as long as you need.

Winning bidder please use the SHIPPING CALCULATOR below for shipping & handling. If you want your item shipped via Priority post, you must email us for additional postage. Please help us keep our email volume down by not asking for a tracking #, when your item shipped or why it's taking so long unless it has been 2 weeks from the shipping date provided below.

We ship with 2 carriers (USPS and FedEx) and sometimes Greyhound and reserve the right to switch to the one that provides the best service for what you paid. Greyhound is reverved for very large items. So even though the calculator may say USPS, it may indeed go FedEx, but thankfully they treat packages better and offer a better serv...
