Your waitress had arms of steel to carry this massive pitcher around filled with water! Standing tall at 10-1/4", this TEPCO-marked white ironstone pitcher shows typical signs of wear along edges, handle, and base, but there are no chips, cracks, or flakes, and it's pretty clean inside with just some light staining along the sides from prior use. Typical exterior scrapes and scratches can be seen under certain lighting conditions - these are typical scratches from being handled and stored with other similar items over time. One stain / mark to note - about 1/2" long on one side, looks like the pitcher was bumped / scraped with a cast iron pot or similar metal item, and it seems like that mark is there to stay. There are also typical manufacturing flaws, oen along the rim looks like the pitcher picked up a spot of green from another item in the kiln. This massive piece weighs about 4-1/2 pounds on its own.

WINNING BIDDER: Please run through checkout within 3 days of auction close, and please provide payment within 5 days of auction close. Timely communications always appreciated. Check your spam filters before assuming you haven't heard from me; I send an email with checkout

SHIPPING TURNAROUND: It takes 5-7 business days to package and deliver your purchase to the appropriate carrier, and that time can be extended for odd-size, more difficult items requiring custom packaging. Parcel post adds up to 10 business day turnaround to some locations.

SHIPPING OPTIONS AND COSTS: U.S. Priority Mail for lighter and smaller items is available to all U.S. residents. Parcel Post has become the least expensive shipping option and takes up to 10 business days in transit. Fed Ex Ground is used for heavier and larger items and is ONLY available to residents in the Lower 48, and not for Alaska, Hawaii, or APOs.

SHIPPING MATERIALS: I pack simply with quality materials to ensure safe arrival of your purchase. Typically, you'll find your item gently wrapped in paper sans tape, surrounded by lots of loose-fill popcorn to absorb shock during transit. Styrene loose fill is expensive but it works; please consider reusing it or passing it on to another eBay seller for recycling.

FEEDBACK: If for some reason you are dissatisfied with your purchase FOR ANY REASON, please let me know - I respectfully ask you to consider working out an issue or concern before hitting me with negative or neutral feedback. I work hard to find cool stuff at reasonable prices, and I like my feedback to reflect my professionalism, service, and quality shipping materials. But if I've made a mistake, or you're unhappy, just let me know. Five stars always appreciated!

Best of luck and thank you for your interest in my auction!
