SPECIAL NOTE TO USA BUYERS :

Due to unannounced changes by Ebay, if you wish to continue being offered listings from the UK please ensure you check the 'Worldwide' box in your Search options. The previous default for worldwide is now being replaced with US only, so UK listings will not otherwise appear. (Or just add elestegen to your Favourites List, and be sure not to miss anything with the weekly updates!) As a result I have now set up a USA site for elestegen, so do search all my listings for those extra-special art nouveau and art deco treats! And to UK Buyers - Apologies for the confusion of listing in two currencies, but please note all items are based in the UK . Many thanks to all and hope to see you again soon!
