Please make your best offer.

 

I found far too many interesting French Revolution Bicentennial objects on eBay during the past couple of decades and I need to find homes for some of them. These range from little souvenir dishes 4 inches wide, to wine glasses and 10-inch collector display plates.

So, if one or more of these lots simply have to go on your shelf or wall, make me your best offer. All offers will be considered.

Shipping is extra and will be via USPS or UPS, whichever costs less for your parcel (keep in mind that shipping will cost somewhat more than Media Mail book rate, especially for heavier parcels). Non-book items cannot be shipped with books at book rate, and I don't recommend mailing breakables in a book parcel in any case. USA addresses only, please.

Keep in mind that if you are considering several pieces, you will save a lot on shipping per item if you have two or more items mailed together--for example, one lightish item in a parcel will cost about $10 to ship, while two or three items, the total parcel weighing less than 3 pounds, will cost about $13 via Priority Mail. Priority includes up to $50 worth of insurance at no additional charge (or you can add more for a small charge), which is nice when dealing with breakables.

Email me with any questions, including requests for larger photos or a shipping estimate for any item or combination of items.

 

All items listed are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
