Originally, this was a set of 12 glasses, but 2 were broken so I threw them out. The glasses stand 5.25 inches tall. The writing is the exact same on all glasses. They say "By Appointment Denis-Mounie Cognac".
I am selling these for a friend. She said she has had them for many years, obtaining them from her mother. Her mother always said they were a wedding gift. My friend's mom was married twice, once in 1948 and once in 1962. My friend does not know which wedding these were presented as a gift at.
They will be sent in their original thick cardboard presentation box. The top of the box says the same as the glasses but also says "By Appointment To The Late King George V", "Established 1838", "and "Product of France".
I will do my best to pack these 'bullet proof" and the box will be labeled with "Fragile" stickers. That doesn't always mean much to the postal service, so the box will be mailed with USPS insurance and Signature Required confirmation. Since those two safety measures protect us both, I split those costs with the buyer. Unfortunately, the set will not fit in to any of the postal Flat Rate boxes. Delivery will be via regular USPS Priority Mail from Nevada.
Buyer to pay $9.95 delivery charges.
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT POSSIBLE PARTIAL REFUND OF SHIPPING CHARGES:
Every January the U.S. Postal Service increases the shipping prices. This year's increase is beyond any we've seen in previous years. Before the 2019 increase, shipping costs were based on weight. A package weighing less than one pound cost the same amount regardless if it was mailed 2 miles away, or from coast to coast. Packages weighing over 1 pound were priced by what the destination zipcode was.
Now, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. Now it is not possible to state a shipping cost and have it be valid regardless if the package is traveling 2 miles or all the way to the east coast. I am in Nevada and probably 90% of the packages I mail go eastward, and a majority of them go all the way to the east coast.
To complicate this even further, Google will not show items for sale unless they have a designated cost, or unless the seller uses calculated shipping. My web host is not equipped to figure calculated shipping, so I have to quote a shipping charge using the east coast as the final destination and then refund over payments. When I return the overage, I usually do so by including cash inside the package when it's shipped. My feedback page will show verification that I do return overpayments.
As a buyer, there are two choices. If you over pay on the shipping charges, I refund an appropriate amount to cover the over payment OR if you'd like to send me a message stating your zip code and the item you are interested in, I can quote you an exact shipping charge and send you a custom invoice with an accurate shipping charge.
About Combined Shipping:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased, but as stated above, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of over payment. If you are uncomfortable with that, send me a message with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. PAYPAL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
