Details

Minnesota State Fair! Swine Barn! The largest hog: 1200 odd pounds sitting with a gruesome look on his ugly face, displaying boorish, silly looking teeth.

A young lad--eight years old?--hops into a pen with two large pigs--a black and piebald, brandishing a spanking switch.
Spank, spank, spank. "Get up!"
A reluctant piebald is on its feet. "Now we can have some fun!" The lad leaps onto the pig's back--"Wheee, whheeeee, wheeee," exclaims the excited piebald, running with brisk short steps, circling the pen. The lad pops off the pig, expertly wielding the spanking switch, with short wrist snaps, seemingly aimed at piebald's anus. Andy and Jewish-looking fellow in rumpled Bermudas are laughing their heads off, encouraging new rounds of spankings and ridings. A regal looking woman dressed in a sari stands to the side of the goings on with a stern expression--her body language indicates she isn't amused.

There's an abrupt change in the proceedings. An adult--the father? with swarthy complexion has wrested the switch from the lad's hand, and replaced it with a combing brush. As we leave the building, the lad is busy feeding and brushing the pigs--the mirth gone from the previous festivities. Too bad.

By the way, the leaf is cut from the side of a Tripel Karmeliet from Belgium, copper foiled and soldered back together with lead free solder. It's about 3 1/2" long by 2 3/4" wide with a curvy 3 1/2" copper stem with a ball bearing swivel for twirling. And did I mention it's a unique home decor?

Shipping

Shipping from United States
Ready to ship in
3 - 5 business days
USPS Priority and Priority International--sure it's more expensive, but your stuff isn't rattling around with seventy pound dumb-bell sets and concrete slabs!

Korrvu packaging cartons are uncannily cool--your glass piece is actually suspended between film in the center of the carton! For smaller sun catchers, I may use foam wrap, inside a bubble wrap mailer, inside a corrugated carton.

First Class Mail International and Parcel Post is another option if you're not in a hurry and trust the Korrvu packaging carton (they're pretty indestructible)--in most cases, shipping costs would drop dramatically from Priority and Priority International. Send me a convo with what you're looking at, and I can figure out the USPS cost before you buy.

Odds n Ends regarding International Orders...

If you desire insurance, please indicate in "Message to Seller" upon purchase and continue payment. You will receive an invoice with the remaining balance.

Additionally...

I do not refund for packages lost/unclaimed/undeliverable.
I am not responsible for taxes and duties that may incur. All international orders are marked "Merchandise" and will not be marked as "Gift" as this is illegal for my business.

Please check your customs policies to ensure safe delivery.

Payments

Secure options
  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Don't forget that PayPal doesn't require you to have a PayPal account--PayPal will walk you through, using your credit card--always be wary of feral mushrooms in onion sauce...especially when you are exhausted. And of course, Direct Checkout is another option!

Returns & exchanges

Your satisfaction is my top priority. If you want to return or exchange an item, I will accept it back within the first 7 days of receipt. The item must return in a new and unused condition, in its original packaging.

Please contact me about returning in advance.

Custom Orders are not refundable. I try and provide as much information about the process--including progress reports with photographs--which require approval before each stage is embarked upon.

Refunds will be issued through PayPal or Direct Checkout, less the shipping costs.

Additional policies

I especially enjoy wranglin' a raw concept from yer lumpy, side-stepped into my slightly...fer something totally different. Did someone say esoteric?
