Details

This charming picture is made of colored blades of straw. It is from Mexico and dates from the first half of the 20th century. The technique is called straw marquetry or straw art.

This example of straw art depicts a pyramid in the background with a Mexican man offering something to a donkey or burro. The picture is 3.5 x 5 inches and the total matted area is 8 x 10 inches. This is not framed but has a black mat under the straw art. Condition is excellent. The colors are still vivid and no breaks or missing bits.

Policies

Condition of items:
All my items are pre-owned, vintage and antique. They are not necessarily used. I try to describe condition fully but am not perfect. Realize that even an unused item will have been handled and/or been stored in a closet, perhaps for years. When I describe an item as giftable it means it is as good as it can get.

WYSIWYG:
What you see is what you get. No exceptions.

Shipping:
Shipping is prompt, sometimes same day. I ship from US two to three times a month and Canada usually next day. Small items shipped airmail from Canada to major cities in the US and Europe usually arrive in 3 to 7 days. Japan and Asia take longer. Australia and New Zealand are similar to Europe.

Shipping outside North America:
Sometimes because I consider international shipping will be too exhorbitant or the item too fragile to reach you safely, I do not offer a shipping rate. If you still want the item, email me to see if we can make an arrangement. If you are willing to pay the airmail rate or wait for surface mail I will ship to you.

Insurance:
I will not mail pricy items if I can't insure them. If my insurer will not insure to your country, I will refund you and cancel the order.


***Important.
If you need something in a hurry, email me first to see if it is possible. Even paying for express shipping you need to allow a minimum of 3 days for delivery unless you live in the state of Washington.

Combined shipping:
I combine shipping automatically. Since I never know what items you will be combining, add-on shipping quoted is an estimate at best. If your combined shipping is higher than actual when weighed together I will send you a refund for the over payment. Combined shipping is a great way to save money. If the estimate is under actual shipping, I take the loss.

Packaging and insurance: I pack securely and safely and include insurance in the shipping fee for breakables and high value items. If you have security problems where you live, you can request insurance on any item.

The cost of packing supplies, insurance and other incidental costs are built into the shipping fee and not into the cost of the item. That way if you buy more than one item you aren't paying for these costs more than once.

***Exception:
Certain items do not make sense for combined shipping. for example books and bone china.

Returns:
Items are sold as is, however if there is an error and it is mine, I will make it right. In case the item arrives damaged, keep item, all packing materials and contact me before you do anything else. All problems must be reported within 48 hours of receipt.

No returns because you didn't read the measurements, see it was marked used, or don't like it. Read the description completely and carefully. That is why I take the time to write long descriptions...so you don't make a mistake. If I omitted something, don't take a chance. Ask me.

Questions:
Ask before you buy. I will always answer your questions within 24 hours.

International duty and taxes:
If you live outside Canada and the US, you are responsible for any tax and duty levied by your country.
