1 - Item Description
This is a RARE Complete Set of 12 Porcelain Royal Doulton Lord of the Rings Middle Earth Figurines with an incredibly RARE Display Stand. Includes the RARE hard to find Tom Bombadil, Barliman Butterbur and Samwise Gamgee. These 3 figurines alone have a market value of around $2,000. The In-Store Display Stand is VERY RARE! T is one other seller with one listed currently on Ebay, and he wants $1,000 for the stand alone!! The stand was given to retail store owners for display purposes only, since Royal Doulton made a porcelain base/stand to sell with the set of figurines. So t can only be a very few of the stands in existence. I have only seen this particular stand on Ebay 2 or maybe 3 times in the past 10 years!! I have seen the porcelain base/stand sell on Ebay for inexcess of $500, and t are more of those than t are of thisstand.
All 12 Figurines are in excellent condition, no chips, cracks or crazing. The Display Stand is in excellent condition as well.

2 - Shipping
Domestic Shipping within the Continental United States - Shipping will be via UPS Ground with Full Insurance and Tracking within the continental USA. For Alaska, Hawaii & Puerto Ric (AK, HI and PR) address's please email me and I will get a quote for you.International Shipping - NOTE ***** Please note the following for ALL international customers . Shipping for this set internationally will be VERY expensive as I can only use UPS Worldwide Expedited in order to ship them fully insured. USPS Express will only allow insurance up to $650 per package, which means these figurines would have to be shipped in multiple packages in order for them to be fully insured, and I don't wish to ship them in multiple packages. Shipping without insurance or with low insurance is a risk to the seller, not the buyer, and I am not willing to ship them under-insured and take a chance on getting only $650 for the set if I have to file a claim for insurance. If the package is lost or damaged, it is the seller who files a claim and gets reimbursed via insurance, not the buyer. I can send them all in one package fully insured via UPS Worldwide Expedited and that could run anyw between $250-$350. I have included the UPS Worldwide Expedited option in the shipping calculator because USPS will not even work with the calculator since it can only calculate using $650 for insurance.
