Announcement   Specialized in toleware lamp and chandelier restoration (WITH GLOBAL SHIPPING). Also check out my shop in Maastricht Netherlands on http://www.facebook.com/lievrevintage

Chandeliers are cleaned, wiring and fittings are renewed if needed. Most of the old lamps contain cotton wiring which can lead to hazardous situations. The old cotton wiring is renewed and corroded fittings are replaced by new items.

All items are left in their original state as much as possible. In case of missing items, like porcelain flowers, these items will be remoulded to complete the lamp. These flowers can be purchased separately via the shop and in those cases spare parts will be provided together with the chandelier.

Furthermore I am specialized in precision welding (TIG and hard soldering with silver or bronze) to restore damaged or heavily corroded lamps to their original state.
Lamps are suitable for 110V and 220V AC (EU, US, UK, AUS, JAP etc..).

All chandeliers have E14 sockets (SES). E12 (CES) is mainly used in the US and Canada.

IMPORTANT for customers from the US or Canada: Be aware that EU chandeliers in most cases hold E14 sockets which is NOT a US standard. Lievre Vintage in this case will convert the sockets to E12 which is a common US standard, this ensure that you want will not have problems finding lightbulbs!

Shipments to the US or Canada will be supplied with this adapter for free.
Shipping can be worldwide and includes insurance and tracking.

Metal lamps can be extended with earthing to ensure that you can safely connect it to your house installation.

Enjoy these wonderful lamps….

Important notice:
It is advised to use low energy light bulb's. Most chandeliers are designed for 40 Watts/socket but it's best to use not more then 20 Watts as it increases the life time of the fittings and wiring significantly. Check fittings and wiring regularly and replace them if needed.

Lightbulbs depicted in the shop photo's are not included.

About

Chandelier creation and restoration

Somehow I got fascinated by these "happy" and colourful flower chandeliers. It brings joy to find them (often in a bad state), save them and bring them back to life.

Lievre Vintage is a studio specialised in creation and restoration of tole chandeliers and sconces. The last years Ben has professionalised the studio with specialised soldering and welding equipment including sanding blaster and cleaning machine.

In order to replace broken or missing ceramic parts, rubber molds are created and used to reproduce missing parts (mostly flowers). These parts also used by customers creating a DIY chandelier. Based on these original models Ben also designs and creates new fixtures.

Shipping is a very important aspect for Etsy sellers. Ben has developed a safe procedure to pack these fragile items safely and deliver them worldwide. Using heavy duty boxes and an airbag packaging system.

Ben is in continuous search for these items across Europe which are all collected in his shop/studio in Maastricht Netherlands.

Shipping
Shipment always includes insurance and track and tracing services.
Delivery requires a signature.

If you want to deviate from this policy then please contact the shop owner.

International Buyers – Please Note:
Import duties,
taxes & charges aren't included in the price or shipping charges for your order.
These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's
customs office to determine these additional costs prior to ordering.
Refunds and Exchanges
Lamps are tested and photographed just before shipment.
What you see is what you get! If in doubt, please ask for more information or photo's before shipment!

It is important to check the package and it's content at delivery time. In case of visible damage take photographs, file a complaint at your local postoffice and contact me as soon as possibe. Only in that case I can follow up and create an insurance case.
Additional policies and FAQs
After placing the order you will receive a trace and tracking code (and link) to track your shipment. Check shipping status on a regular basis. Contact me if you see any problems or long delays with your shipment,

Make sure you are at home to accept the package! A signature is required since the shipment is insured.
Most shipping companies try delivery once and leave a note for pickup at a local distribution point. They normally keep the package there for 21 days! after that it will "return to sender". For shipment outside the EU e.g US and Canada a "return to Sender"-shipment takes up to 3 months. So worst case, I will need around 3 months to re-ship your order in case you are not at home at the moment of delivery AND you fail to pickup the package yourself!
I will not accept a cancellation since it is the receivers responsebillity to accept the package. Re-shipment will also have additional costs.
