ANTIQUE WHITE CUSTARD GLASS PITCHER AND 5 TUMBLERSThis very nice old set has excellent paint with very little wear except to the gold. This is the more white custard glass. The pitcher is 8.25" tall to the upper rim beside the spout. The hand-painted floral design is nearly perfect after all these years. T is a beaded loop around the bottom third of the pitcher. The upper rim is scalloped, and the gold remains in the inner most part of the scallop, but the upper rims are bare of gold. Close inspection of the smooth forward part of the upper rim, which did have gold originally, has very little remaining gold. This can be seen in the photo's. The bottom of the pitcher has an indented rayed flower. The handle is applied and has a little gold remnant on the upper parts of the handle w it is applied to the pitcher. The inner bottom of the pitcher has 3-4 straw marks, which is common in old glass.This is a nice heavy 4# pitcher. The pitcher has NO CHIPS, CRACKS, FLEA BITES or REPAIRS. The tumblers have exceptional paint as well. Two of the 5 have vertical straw marks which have some color to them, but look like if you took a soft tooth brush to them, would clean out. I hesitate to do that, and would leave that to the new owner. This kind of straw mark is also not uncommon. I have shown one in the last picture. T is minimal gold around the top of the tumblers, and the gold paint on the beaded loop is pretty worn, but the pictures are a good representation of the condition. The tumblers are just shy of 4" tall, and none have CHIPS, CRACKS, FLEA BITES or REPAIRS. This is a fantastic old set in near excellent condition. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thanks for viewing my auction. I sell all items âeoeas isâe, with no warranty. The items that I sell come from Estates and Auctions, and as such, are from a vintage era, and are tfore usually in a used condition, unless otherwise stated. I will only offer a refund if I have grossly misrepresented the item offered, and refund will be for actual price paid excluding the cost of shipping or insurance cost paid, as well as cost of shipping the item back to me. I prefer Pay Pal, but also accept Money Orders and Personal Checks. Payment made by check or money order is expected to arrive WITHIN 10 DAYS OF AUCTION END. I can not be held responsible for items lost or damaged by the USPS, so while INSURANCE IS OPTIONAL, it is also HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for breakable items. If you choose not to insure a breakable item, and it arrives broken, you have lost your item and your hard earned cash. PLEASE CONSIDER ADDING THE INSURANCE. Please check out my OTHER ITEMS listed and COMBINE SHIPPING and save $$$. Buyers pay a modest handling fee for the first item and NO ADDITIONAL HANDLING FEE FOR SUBSEQUENT ITEMS. Like any seller, I am always happy to have multiple items sell. Multiples usually change the size and weight of the box, and experience has taught me that if you pay before you receive your invoice, the total that you won the items for computes properly, but the shipping calculator takes the amount which it had calculated for each individual item, and adds them together to come up with the total shipping cost. This price is much more than what it should be. I do not charge a handling fee on second and subsequent items, and the computer calculated cost of shipping combined is incorrect and exorbitant. It is in your best interest to wait for your invoice.
