This bodice decoration is machine-made Valenciennes lace dating from the early 1900's. The very light-weight delicate lace is white, 12" long x 6" wide, and in very good condtion with no stains or damage.
Shipping charges include tracking on most U.S. orders and insurance on most orders over $50.00. I'm happy to combine shipping charges whenever possible. Contact me before you buy if you feel that the combined shipping charges seem out of line - I can package and weigh your items and give you an accurate shipping quote. Also, if you need a shipping upgrade (to Priority from Standard, for example), contact me before you purchase so I can change the listing for you.
I'm sorry, but I do not ship to China, Indonesia, Syria, Iraq, or Africa. I also will not ship orders over $50.00 to the following countries (my preferred insurer will not insure them): Russia, Bolivia, Venezuela, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE, India, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Bosnia, Iran, Pakistan, Brazil, Peru, Panama, Jordan.
FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please understand that I will only fill out customs forms with accurate information, and you'll be responsible for any duties or taxes. It's your responsibility to find out what charges your government may apply. If an item is returned because you did not pay the VAT, please note that shipping charges will not be refunded.
It's also your responsibility to be aware of any restrictions/regulations regarding the importation of any item you purchase, including, but not limited to, furs, precious metals, coral, clothing, etc. I will not be responsible for items confiscated by your government.
PLEASE DON'T ASK ME TO RESERVE ITEMS! I simply can't hold merchandise until you can afford to pay for it. If you see items in my shop that are reserved, it's for another reason, such as combining shipping or a price change.
I accept Paypal and credit cards. You can pay with a credit card through Paypal without having an account. I also now accept Etsy Payments. Sorry, but I no longer accept checks or money orders.

Additional return information
I want you to be happy with your purchase, so I do accept returns, provided that: 1) You contact me immediately upon receipt of the item (in other words, within 1-3 days). 2) You put the item in the mail within 1 week. 3) The item is returned in the same condition in which it was sent, with the original packaging. Shipping charges will not be refunded unless the item is not as I described it (e.g. undisclosed damage or inaccurate description). I do strive for complete accuracy in my descriptions (and try to research items I'm not sure about), but no one can be an expert on everything, so I'm happy to accept returns if you're not satisfied. Contact me before returning an item, and I'll try to resolve the problem.
Please be sure that your address is absolutely correct (including your apartment number). If your package is returned to me because you supplied an incorrect address, you will have to pay to re-ship.
My home is smoke-free, but we do have dogs. Condition of textiles: Unless I say an item is "pristine" or "perfect" you should assume that vintage/antique clothing, linens, lace, etc. will show signs of use or age. They will not look as though they were made yesterday! I'll make every effort to describe items accurately and will point out flaws and deficiencies. Following are some guidelines about condition : Excellent: Without damage but may show some evidence of age or use. Very Good: A bit more signs of wear but no obvious flaws, such as stains or holes. Good: May have minor stains or obvious signs of repairs or small holes but is still usable and/or displays well. Fair: Has obvious flaws and may be in fragile condition. Please remember: Never wash anything vintage in the washing machine! Older textiles should only be gently hand washed, and since I prefer to sell only things ready for use or display, most of my items have already been washed. Exceptions are fragile items or things unsuited to immersion in water. Please contact me with questions about condition before purchasing an item.
