This evening I will be listing 10 sales of tin litho toy tea sets... several sets and several pieces depending on the sale. The group picture is meant to help you identify other items of interest. What is pictured in all the other pictures (not the big group picture) is what is for sale in that sale. Be sure to check out all 10 sales... there are several very scarce and wonderful dishes in this group of sales!! Please read my shipping guidelines below.

I AM BEING VERY, VERY PICKY.... THIS IS A SET I HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE AND OVERALL IT IS IN SUPERB sale WILL SHIP AS ADVERTISED INDIVIDUALLY. I WILL COMBINE AND SHIP BY EXACT SHIPPING IF YOU WIN MULTIPLE sales. IF YOUR PIECES WEIGH LESS THAN 1LB, I WILL SHIP BY 1ST CLASS... AND BY PRIORITY 1LB AND OVER. Please wait until you are done offerding and then contact me for a combined shipping invoice. If you pay early, I will probably pack and ship your tin right away... then if you buy more I cannot combine shipping. I just have no way of knowing if you are going to offer again and I like to stay on top of the shipping!
I DO SHIP WORLDWIDE BUT I DO NOT GIVE SHIPPING QUOTES!!! Shipping quotes require an item to be boxed up ahead of time... I do not have time to box stuff up, just to unpack it to answer more questions... take more pictures... combine it with other items... pack it in a different box for domestic shipping... etc. I shipmany items internationally! I do notcharge handling fees! I will box your item up at the end of the sale and send it by the most reasonable means possible! Any items that sell for over $250 that ship outside of the USA I will only ship by Global Priority! I will not ship items of a great value without some sort of tracking and proof that the item arrived. Any item that sells for $500 or greater internationally will only ship with a signature required.
I use a ruler in every gallery photo. If you need more measurements or more specific measurements, please ask.
