Up for your consideration..............EXTREMELY rare Tiffany & Co. piece!!! Designed and signed by Dorothy Hafner, this Vintage porcelain Teapot is in the oh so cool shape of a Pocketbook!! Even has it's "handle"!! This is truly one of the neatest pieces I've ever found and I've NEVER seen another one close to it!! From my research, I've found out that Dorothy Hafner was a designer years ago for Rosenthal, very talented woman who often designed the patterns of Rosenthal's lovely China. She occasionally did other pieces, but I've not found ONE that was done specifically for Tiffany & Co.!!! Porcelain teapot part measures 5" high by 9 1/4" long by 4" wide. With the wooden handle up, it measures 9 1/4" high. On bottom, it is signed "Dorothy Hafner, 1981, for Tiffany & Co" in black under glaze AND personally signed by her bottom right corner "Dorothy Hafner"!!! Condition is VERY very good!!!! There is one flea bite noted at end of spout, very hard to see but it is noted for complete accuracy. The rest is just in super shape, especially considering it's over 25 years old!! And the deco design is bright, bold and colorful!!! Winning bidder will LOVE this piece, I guarantee it!!! So take a look....give a bid.....and you'll be glad you did!! And be sure and check out ALL my other items up for auction! They range from Antiques & Collectables, New & Old! New listings all the time! HERE ARE THE RULES.....PLEASE!!! READ ALL Shipping information will be sent AFTER the auction! "THE FACTS, M'AAM, NOTHING BUT THE FACTS, PLEASE!!" And here they are. Shipping will be done most times by the US Post Office and insurance is mandatory and will be automatically figured into your shipping costs. Payment MUST be received within 5 days of winning or item will go back up for auction. Shipping charges will be sent AFTER the auction....PLEASE WAIT....for an invoice from me, as it obviously costs less to ship to NY than it does for me to ship to CA and I adjust charges accordingly!!! If you pay right away, you may be paying more than you should. I do NOT try to make $$ on shipping charges, like some eBay sellers!! And there is no "handling" fee either!! Be aware, however, that shipping costs may vary slightly, little more, little less depending on where being sent. Please check my feedback to be assured I ship WELL WRAPPED!!! And not only use alot of wrapping materials, but almost always double box as well for protection!! US Post Office costs have increased sharply thus I've had to increase shipping costs as well. However, I still never charge for handling, wrapping, or package materials!! Also, I simply cannot get to my post office daily!! So, it can take up to TEN DAYS for me to ship to you. If you need item for a gift or quickly, PLEASE email me and I will do my best to ship it quickly. MOST times, shipping is within 5 days or less!!! INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS!!!! I WILL SEND SHIPPING INFORMATION AFTER!!!! AUCTION. I WILL TAKE YOUR ITEM TO THE POST OFFICE, READY TO BE SHIPPED, AND GET EXACT COSTS FOR YOU. THIS WAY, YOU WILL NOT!!! PAY TOO MUCH. PLEASE GIVE ME TIME TO DO SO...... ***PLEASE DO NOT SEND PAYMENT UNTIL AFTER I SEND YOU AN INVOICE*** And last but NOT least, please be aware I am NOT an Antiques or Glass/Collectables Expert!! I'm also NOT a "dealer" by trade. I'm just a simple eBay seller (retired nurse) who loves to buy on weekends, research items, then list for auction or sale. I ALWAYS try to give as accurate a description as possible and the majority of items I list are from the "secondary" market, thus they may need further cleaning or polishing, which is the responsibility of buyer. Also, please be aware that insurance costs go up very frequently, which will raise the shipping price, depending on item selling price. AND...please be aware I do accept returns on MOST items and only wish to have happy, satisfied customers, so if you have ANY problems at all with any items, simply email me first and we shall work out a satisfact...
