Item specifics

Composition: Silver Plate Product: Dishes
Maker: The Leonardo Collection Age: Post-1940

Modern silver plated fruit bowl, embossed grapes, Leonardo Collection, in box


Fabulous modern silver plated fruit bowl by the Leonardo Collection, still in its original cardboard box.

This is a shallow bowl in a basic rounded square shape. It has the most delightful design of embossed grapes on a vine plant where the twisting stems form handles to each corner. The bowl is in a bright and lustrous silver plate which shows off the design to perfection.

This would be a stunning piece for the sideboard or table of any house or flat. It is recommended that fruit is not allowed to leak acidic juices into the surface of the silver as it could cause corrosion - do not leave it for extended periods or provide some protection such as a doyley or napkin to the inner base.

Condition is very good, as you would expect of an item that has probably never been used. There are only the tiniest of speckles and surface scratches, There is some slight inconsistency in the colouration of the under-base, but this does not affect the lustre and is in any case invisible when the dish is in use. The cardboard box is a little battered from storage.

The bowl is approximately 29cm (11.5 inches) square.

Postage and packing  £7.60 including packaging charges 20p.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ: My postage and packing policy is to be fair. I do not try to make a profit from postage and packing, but I think it is reasonable to charge a small amount for packing materials, which I will use as necessary to ensure that my items are safe in the post. I also spend quite a lot of time in packing individual items. Most of my items are packed in strong boxes, recycled to keeps costs down. These can often add more than 500g to the weight of the package. I normally charge between 25p and 78p for packaging, depending on the size and quantity of pieces comprising the item. Where items are packaged in padded envelopes or cardboard sheets I will reduce my estimate accordingly. I usually post first class as a standard service, on the assumption that buyers want to receive their goods as soon as possible. I can offer buyers the option to reduce their postal costs by requesting a quote for second class or standard parcel rate - please contact me before payment. I would ask buyers requesting a less expensive post, when leaving star ratings in feedback, to remember that this will delay timing of receipt. I will still post within 2 business days of payment, or sooner if I able to do so. I leave postage price displayed on my parcels. If any buyer is dissatisfied with my postage and packaging charge would they please check the label on their parcels and contact me to discuss a refund. No-one should pay more than £1 over the postal charge for packaging (most pay far less)and if I become aware that anyone has paid an excessive amount I will refund them. Insurance: The Royal Mail provide insurance on items up to the value of £41. On items in excess of this value I will incorporate an insurance charge into my postage and packing estimate. Where I have started an auction at a lower asking price than £41 but final price exceeds this value I will not change the original postage quoted in my listing. I may use my discretion to use a signed for delivery service in the listing. If buyers require a less expensive service please contact me before payment. I am responsible for ensuring that items reach buyers in the same condition as I listed them. I keep certificates of posting in the event of damage or loss. In the event of damage in transit, I require photographs of the damaged item and the packaging when they reach the buyer in order to claim compensation and refund the buyer. I may ask the buyer to return the item to me in the damaged condition before a refund can be made. WOULD ANY BUYER WHO REQUIRES A TRACKED SERVICE,REGISTERED POST OR A SIGNED FOR SERVICE AS AN EXTRA PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE PAYMENT AS THE PRICES QUOTED ON MOST OF MY LISTINGS FOR POSTAGE AND PACKING DO NOT INCLUDE THIS. PLEASE NOTE THAT ROYAL MAIL MAXIMUM DELIVERY TIMES ON THE STANDARD FIRST CLASS SERVICE IS 15 WORKING DAYS. ROYAL MAIL MAXIMUM DELIVERY TIME ON THE AIR MAIL SMALL PACKETS SERVIVCE IS 20 WORKING DAYS TO EUROPE AND 25 WORKING DAYS TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. I WILL REFUND BUYERS FOR ITEMS NOT RECEIVED AFTER THIS TIME HAS EXPIRED. HOWEVER, IT IS VERY UNUSUAL FOR ITEMS TO BE LOST OR TAKE THIS LONG TO ARRIVE.
