Gin-For's Odditiques

(Cats and batteries not included.)

These bronze plaques feature Ellen Terry and Henry Irving, the most famous British Shakespearean actors of the late 19th century. Irving also directed plays, I believe. The plaques are mounted on velvet covered "boxes". Date is probably circa 1900.

Size: The full display on each one is about 10" x 9", while each plaque is about 5 3/4" x 4 3/4".

Price: $125 plus shipping and insurance.

Shipping will depend on location. Contact us for a quote.

Condition: very good, but the velvet is worn, not surprisingly. Some has put two nails into the Irving plaque, evidently to keep it straight.Fortunately, the nails and plaque are close in color and patina. Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.

Buying, Paying, and Such Things

You may notice that we don't have a checkout where you can just click for your goodies without so much as saying hello. Well, we want people to say hello, ask questions, even hope for a better deal. Long ago, I told stories for 7 hours (free refills on coffee), so "impersonal" just isn't my style. Click on one of those "E-mail" buttons. I can't handle as much coffee as I used to, so the stories will be fewer.

These days, Paypal is about the easiest payment method around, but we still take checks, even cash. No Monopoly money, nothing printed up in your basement, no chickens, etc., but otherwise we're fairly flexible. If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it.

Please take time to stroll through the site. Sorry we can't offer you a cup of coffee or tea while you're looking, but maybe you can take care of that yourself. Just don't spill it on the keyboard. And if you run into any questions along the way, there should be an e-mail link on every page, so just click and ask.

Hope you'll enjoy our "sing the body eclectic" approach (with apologies to Walt Whitman). As always, proceeds go to support our creditors, my spouse, our cats, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
