Antique Victorian Porch Spandrel Turned Spindles Architectural Restoration Over 6 Ft.
NOTE: This is a reserved listing. Please do not purchase unless you are Cindi. Shipping costs will include insurance as agreed with buyer.
A charming piece of spandrel from the late 1800s to use for home restoration or repurposing.
There are eighteen (18) turned spindles on this section. Each spindle has two ball shapes. The larger ball shape is approx. 2 x 2 1/2" and the smaller is approx. 1 1/4" x 1 1/2". The shapes are alternating from large to small in the placement of each spindle on the piece. The well preserved wood has evidence of chippy blue and gray paint. Two eye hooks and short pieces of chain were attached to the side rails where I suspended this from a ceiling for drying herbs.
(If you don't have a restoration project, these work great hung either horizontally with spindles displaying vertically or hung on a level horizontal plan plane.)
Condition: Very strong structurally for antique wood of this age and this piece has been preserved in dry storage and never exposed to the elements. Will work well for any home restoration project. There are little imperfections that lend authentic character. The paint is old, cracked and chippy.
Acquisition: Colorado Antique Store Closure Auction.
Measures approx. 6 ft. 3 3/8 inches length (75 3/8") x 9 inches wide x 1 3/4 inches deep.
Weighs approx. 5 pounds but we estimate 20 pounds double boxed with protective packaging. We will take extra care in preparing this for shipment. This item will ship Federal Express within the U.S. only. I will refund any excess shipping charges over $2.00.
Please convo me with any questions.
This was one of the best shopping experiences I've ever had! The store owner Ana was so kind and considerate! The spandrel was exquisite, and better than I ever imagined! She shipped it the very next day, and the wrapping was so superbly done! Being a large piece the box had to be specially made, so ana and her hubby double boxed it with lots of bubble wrap. I don't think even a natural disaster could have damaged this box! Much thanks to Ana and her Hubby for their kindness and amazing customer service!
YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS: Make sure you have updated your shipping address in the etsy system if you have moved. It is up to the buyer to provide etsy sellers with accurate shipping addresses. If a buyer has not updated their address after a move and the item is returned to me as seller, the buyer will pay additional shipping charges to get the item to their current location. I will not be responsible for confirming sellers addresses.
SHIPPING METHOD: Shipping is mostly through USPS but I use Fed Ex Ground for large or very heavy items to save you money. Once your payment is completed, orders are usually shipped out within 24 hours. I will hold an order back from shipment upon request.
SHIPPING TIMES: Weekday orders are almost without exception mailed within 24 hours unless the shop is on vacation, we are experiencing technical problems with the internet, or your item needs a custom crafted box for safe shipping.
All orders received and paid after 12:00 noon on Friday MAY ship on Saturday but most likely will NOT ship until the following Monday. Please remember USPS does not ship on federal holidays.
SHIPPING NOTIFICATION: Buyers always receive an email notification of shipment along with tracking information.
COMBINED SHIPPING: I am VERY happy to combine shipping on orders and do my best to accurately quote shipping but will always refund any overages greater than $2.00.
PACKAGING: I use recycled boxes and packaging materials whenever possible but nothing that would compromise the safety of your purchase. Fragile items such as glass or china are doubly protected and most often, double boxed. I do not purchase styrofoam peanuts but may recycle peanuts that are shipped to us.
INSURANCE: I purchase insurance when I think the situation calls for it. If you want to add insurance to your item, you need to initiate this option through the "convo" section before purchase.
DELIVERY CONFIRMATION: Because Paypal offers tracking, I rarely purchase delivery confirmations.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I quote some international shipping so if you don't see your country listed, please convo me for an estimate.
REFUNDS IN THE US: If you purchase an item and it is damaged during shipping, I will refund your purchase but if it was mailed through USPS, it is dependent upon your following the USPS guidelines. This is the process:
1) Save all the packaging and photograph 2) Photograph the damage 3) Send me the photographic proof of the above 4) I will immediately refund your purchase in full
I accept Paypal. Please note that even If you don't have a Paypal account, you can still use your credit card to make a purchase through Paypal.
COUPONS: Any coupon offers from my shop MUST be entered BY THE BUYER at checkout not after the fact. I can not reimburse buyers for discounts after the purchase because I am charged a % by paypal so this is not fair to the seller. If you want the discount, enter it when you make your purchase. Thank you.
RESERVED LISTINGS: Once a reserve listing is posted, payment must be made within 48 hours.
Returns & exchanges
I gladly accept cancellations
Request a cancellation within: 12 hours of purchase

Additional return information
I want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase so please ask questions before you purchase the item. I do not offer refunds or exchanges for vintage or antique items unless I have somehow misrepresented the item. I do my best to accurately describe, photograph and disclose as much information as possible. Please ask questions before purchase. Thank you.
I am happy to ship Internationally. For items that qualify First Class, I will not be held responsible once the item arrives at customs because First Class tracking is limited internationally. Therefore, I recommend priority shipping for international buyers due to more detailed tracking information. When you ask me for a quote, you may specify your preference.
