Description

Vintage antique cannetille filigree needle case, a lovely and useful antique sewing collectible. Via research and the previous owner, I can tell you that this is a Victorian Era needle case, 1880-1910, and though unmarked, probably came from England, though this wire work is often attributed to ethnic groups. It measures 2 1/4 inches by 1/2 inches, and weighs about 16.25 grams. It tests quite positively for sterling grade silver. I have not cleaned it.

It was meant for a pocket, reticule, basket or parlor tabletop.... there was never a chatelaine attachment. It could also be used for other applications....prayer box, pocket altar, emergency toothpick stash? The little balls on the ends move, so they are in via a loose rivet of sorts I suppose.

Lovely and delicate cannetille filigree in heart shapes, of fine sterling wire. Age appropriate wear. Please look at the pictures and use Zoom. You will note that there is some crusty silver polish residue. Some of the delicate wire work has been pushed around a bit.

The cap fits snugly.

I accept returns and do not offer partial refunds.

Sent safely packaged, Priority Flat with tracking and insurance, If anyone is inadvertently overcharged for shipping, I will cheerfully refund the difference. I do not ship to some international locations, and never without tracking and insurance, so it's expensive and am very sorry about this.

Thank you for stopping by!

I will accept returns for full refund within 7 days of receipt of the package, and will repair my handmade jewelry should issues arise not due to abuse.

I want you to be totally satisfied with your purchase of an heirloom piece, so please contact me immediately if there are any issues or concerns.

Shipping policies

I ship everything with tracking and insurance, and refund overcharges cheerfully.
I ship to the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand ONLY.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING
I ship with tracking and insurance usually no later than 2 business days after purchase. Sometimes life gets in the way of my good intent, but I always try my very best to be prompt and will always keep you informed.

Your address must be current and correct, please check your accounts to be certain. I am not certain I did everything just right when switching to calculated shipping, so please be patient. If you are overcharged for shipping and insurance I will cheerfully refund. If I have not charged you enough, smile and carry on.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

"IMPORTANT": If you live outside the US please be aware that any VAT, taxes, customs fees or other charges you may incur when your package arrives in your country are your responsibility and are not included in the shipping fee. Please do not ask me to mark your item as a gift. I will not falsify customs forms. In the event you decide to return an item, you are responsible for costs of return shipping in the same manner in which I originally sent the item to you.

I do not ship anywhere without tracking. Who in their right mind is willing to assume the risk of the loss of their product, and payment as well? It is pricey, and I have tried to offer the least expensive methods of shipping safely.

For items sent internationally, please understand that I cannot be responsible for packages that are held in customs, so be sure the item you wish to buy is allowed to be sent to your country before making the purchase. I insure all items sent internationally so please contact me if your item doesn't arrive or if it arrives damaged. Shipping internationally is an expensive problem, working together on a mutually agreeable form of protection for both of us is open to discussion.

*NOTE: Items sent internationally may take up to 8 weeks to arrive and tracking isn't always precise once an item leaves the US. Please allow enough time for your item to arrive.

All items are shipped through USPS and packaged with the utmost care!

Additional policies

Lay away is a fairly painless process and breaks down an expensive purchase into more munchable chunks, I prefer a 60-90 day maximum period with one third of the price as a down payment, scheduled installments, and do not refund if you change your mind about our agreement. Convo me prior to purchase and I will enable the "OTHER" payment option so you can check out, and I will invoice the agreed upon installments.

I am just me, working instinctively with materials I have, and no longer accept custom work. Adjusting a piece to fit you isn't a problem, or rearranging elements to suit you better is also open to discussion. I am happy to help you with a great fit.

I sell from my home studio, brick and mortar, and at shows, so pieces shown in my Etsy shop are subject to sale elsewhere.

If you are searching for a particular antique or vintage piece, convo me. We have probably the most interesting antique store in the state of Nevada and I am fine with setting up a custom listing for you here.
