STUNNING QUALITY ANTIQUE CARVED INDIAN SILVER HANDLED WALKING STICK / CANE
This week I have listed a lot of my best antique / vintage items from various estate clearances over the last 12 months. I have many small pieces of silver, jewellery, treen, miniature portraits, ephemera and novelty items listed. Why not take a look at my other items, you will not be disappointed, most listings starting at below £10.00.
This is one of a large number of quality antique walking sticks, including silver that I have collected from house clearances over the last year.
This is a beautiful cane.
The handle is made of quality heavy grade silver (unmarked) decorated in floral scrolls and birds.
The shaft is beautifully carved wood in a floral design.
A really lovely stick in very good order. Circa 1900 in date.
There is some very light dents to the silver on one end - very minor.

Due to abnormally long packages, canes sold outside the UK will need to sent via courier.
This will cost approx £20 - £35 (Australia, S.America, Canada and Asia will be more).
Until they are packed properly and we know where it is being sent it is difficult to give an accurate figure but I will get the best possible deal I can. Or you can arrange your own courier.
Important - please note
Insurance will be added if the sale price goes above £46.00. Please read in the "shipping" section below for full explanation. My terms are a condition of sale.
DELIVERIES TO ITALY – Important notice to Italian buyers. Due to numerous parcels that repeated go “missing” as soon as they reach the Italian postal system, all deliveries to Italy with a value over £25.00 will now require compulsory insured signed for delivery. Please add £4.95 to the advertised postage cost.
My prefered method of payment from UK buyers is paypal but I do accept direct bank transfer, cheques or postal orders. For overseas buyers I accept paypal, euros, dollars, bank transfer or a check drawn in GBP sterling. I require payment within a week unless I have agreed otherwise. Please wait for me to send you an invoice so the required insurance can be added. If payment is made before I have added the insurance then I will have to refund your payment and request payment again. For details of insurance costs please read below.
I post all my items by Royal Mail (unless over 2kg in weight) and proof of posting is obtained.
If the item goes above £46.00 in value then insurance will need to be added.
Please note that shipping to Scottish Highlands and Islands off the coast of UK incur additional postage. This is both with Royal Mail and courier services and UK postage rates are not applicable.

Please don't be put off by these terms. In 9000+ deliveries we have only lost a handful of parcels and all buyers got their money back. Hopefully my response speaks for itself, but I run a business and these terms are necessary.
A) I pride myself in keeping my postage and packing costs as close to cost as I can and will where possible will combine postage costs for multiple purchases. I will not enter in to negotiations over postage costs. Each item is weighed and accurate postage displayed in the listing.
B) If you pay by paypal then you are covered by their "Buyer Protection" and in line with this I have to provide documented insured cover for purchases over £46.00. I reserve the right to insure items in line with this policy. THIS COST WILL BE PASSED ON TO THE BUYER. Detailed costs are in the shipping section.
C) Compulsory insurance - I reserve the right to send the item insured if the sale price goes over £46.00 to comply with paypals buyer protection policy. This is non negotiable if you pay via paypal. If you wish your item to be sent uninsured you may pay via another method but all risks are accepted by the buyer and only the standard compensation of up to £46.00 can be claimed.
D) Lost or damaged items - In the unlikely event of an item received damaged or being lost please email me. I will then make a claim on your behalf against the post office. I can claim only after 25 working days after posting and it can take up to 3 weeks for them to reply to the claim so please be patient. When we are refunded then you will be. No claim can be made for damaged china or glass (post office rules). Successful claims for loss will only reflect the value of the item as the post office will not refund postal charges.
E) Overseas buyers are wholly responsible for any customs duty or local charges that may occur within their own country.
I will reply to any response given. I want to make sure you are happy so will give response when it is received. Please be patient as I catch up on my response once a month.
NON PAYING buyers
After 7 days I will send a reminder invoice followed by a "non-paying buyer alert" and a non payer strike against the buyer.
I do not claim to be an expert on any subject. I try to describe all my items as accurately as possible. They are however SOLD AS SEEN. Please ask questions if you are unsure of anything BEFORE offerding.
I sell vintage items. Some might possibly have what I consider "wear" consumate with age - slight surface blemishes, tarnishing, very small natural cracks in wood, very slight colour variations. These may not be listed in the description. Anything I feel is damage or a major detraction will be in the listing. If you have any questions please ask them before you offer. After the sale is too late. I hope my response speaks for itself and my honesty in these matters.
