These 3 statues were part of Avon's 'American Fashion Thimbles" series. The entire series featured 8 different ladies of fashion representing the years from the 1890s to the 1940s. They were in production from 1982 to 1986 and then discontinued. You can no longer get them or replacements of them from Avon. Each lady is hand crafted and made of porcelain.
I purchased these 3 at an estate sale, so I have no info on their past 'living" conditions. I dusted them using a small craft brush, but you'll probably want to clean them further. I didn't know what to safely use on them.
Looking at my photo, the 3 I am offering include:
1890s Lady in a blue dress. Her hat has pink roses. She was the first issue of the series and is dated 1982.
1942 Lady in a Mauve dress with white to gray accents. She is dated 1984.
1927 Lady in a turquoise blue dress, cloche hat, and a string of pearls. She is dated 1983.
(I know, I have them out of date order in my photo). I wrapped them each in bubble wrap and packed them into a small box and then realized I didn't provide measurements on them. If you need exact measurements, let me know and I'll unpack/unwrap them, but they each measure about 2 inches tall.
Delivery will be by USPS First Class Mail Parcel. Buyer to pay $4.99 shipping 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.
