ITEM DESCRIPTION
Wow, a great estate find! This wonderful Majolica "Argenta" Berries by Wedgwood teapot and sugar bowl are just a great addition to your Wedgwood Majolica collection! Pretty blackberry type berries and red blossoms with leaves are on an ivory bark-like (with the highlights in green) background. The teapot has some cracking on the base - still nice an firm and displays lovely. The sugar bowl is large - as was the creamer (which I have a pitcher listed separately because of the darker background..but came with this set) and has a bit of roughness on the inside lip/edge..not much and might have been from production. Both have crazing throughout that commensurate with age. THEY ARE IN SUPER SHAPE FOR THEIR AGE! Amazingly enough, no chips were noted...especially on the teapot spout! There is a glaze "dribble" on the teapot's finial berry on the lid...looks like a repaired crack at first glance, but it is glaze. I have more photos if you need..just let me know! See all photos please...they are part of the description!

MARKINGS: The teapot has Wedgewood 24 YVH (Y=May (month made), V=Artist, H=1879 - no England stamp, which means made before 1891. The sugar bowl only has Wedgwood and the 24 stamp...underglaze 290J with a V...no research yielded any info on this mark. Still, without the England stamp, made prior to 1891.

MEASUREMENTS: These are found in the photos..please ENLARGE and view ALL photos

**Due to age, there may be a small amount of age flaws not deemed to be worthy of noting...straw marks, bubbles, some scuffing, some particles...as typical with age/production. I will be glad to provide any additional info/pics if requested ***

    I strive to provide as many photos as possible...especially of any flaw noted. I think that if you cannot touch it, I better try to make it so the visual is as good as possible! PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS - if in doubt, don't! ;-)

    I issue refunds if the item is damaged or grossly misrepresented (meaning a descriptor was totally wrong, there is a crack that was missed...something along those lines)...not for any other reason. If in doubt...ask questions...or don't. I will issue 100% if damaged - but will need photos so I can issue a claim through either Etsy or USPS. As soon as photos are sent, I will issue a complete refund. All other refunds will be determined case by case.

    Failed Delivery

    If item is returned due to erroneous address or failure to pick-up at post office, transaction will be cancelled and a refund will be issued. Amount of original shipping will be deducted from refund if item was sold as free shipping. If buyer requests a correction and resend, the new shipping costs will be buyer's responsibility.
