Seller: maureenfs (13,729) 100%, Location: Sugar Grove, Illinois, Ships to: US, Item: 392175030299 Small Rustic Primitive Antique Cast Iron House Washington Park Natl Bank Chicago Click images to enlarge Description PLEASE CLICK ON “READ MORE” AND READ FULL DESCRIPTION AND SEE MORE PHOTOS! I went to not one, but Two auctions in one day (I know I’m awesome!) and have so many cool items to list this week. One of the auctions was the estate of a couple that owned a rural radio and TV store, according to the auctioneer, from 1940 until 1970. They frequented the rural auctions, and collected many many antique treasures. When they passed, their stuff was literally packed in boxes and had been kept in storage for decades. The auction was filled with not only their collections, but also generations of family pieces dating back to the mid 1800s. Also, be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of all of my listings as I usually have MORE photos down there, too! AND…I might as well say it from the get-go. ALL of my items this week are DIRTY, DUSTY, COBWEBBY AND DEBRISY, all barn lived for a long time, and ALL will need a good cleaning. I do not clean or mess with as found patina in any way. Also please note that I’ve made some changes to my payment and combined shipment policies, which you can see highlighted in my detail below. I am relisting this beauty due to a non-paying bidder. Please only bid if you plan to pay the amount that you do - to not do so hurts us all, and also I want you to know that I now have ebay's automatic non-paying bidder feature set up for 5 days - no exceptions. What's NOT to love about this one?!? It's a fabulous old house shaped....I assume it's a bank, (although there's no coin slot, I assume you put the money in the bottom which this one does not have) shaped like a home. This is oldoldold - not new, my guess being early 1900s if not before. The front of the hose has a plaque on the bottom that reads, "Washington Park National Bank." I THINK that the plaque may be brass, but it's hard to tell as it's literally almost black, and it's thin so my magnet sticks from the cast iron behind it, but I do see peeks of a gold color and what looks like oxidation. The backside has a plaque also, and it reads, "Save For a Home." This is a miniature house, made of cast iron, with a worn white finish, and green doors and windows. As you can see from my photos, the finish is very very worn, and there's loooots of dark surface rust in spots where the iron is exposed. The roof is a coating, but it's more isolated in other spots as you do see a lot of the original finish. That finish is still peeling, crackling and crazed, too. All of the rust is surface only, the house is in excellent solid and sturdy condition structurally, and really, aside from the missing bottom and the finish wear, there's no other issues that I can see. It measures 3 1/2" wide by 2 3/8" deep and 2 1/2" tall. It weighs 1/2 lb. What a LOOKER this one is! LOVE the age earned primitive patina - ya can't get that new! You are going to love it, too! Customer Satisfaction is extremely important to me. If you receive an item and are not satisfied in any way, please contact me before leaving feedback. If you are using a phone or tablet to look at listings, you may not be seeing full descriptions – please make sure you are – I list sizes, condition and many photos on all of my items – so if you are not seeing that, you’re not seeing all I have about the listing. Please ask if you have any questions, or feel free to inform me if you have any information about one of my listings. As with any of my items, if you ever need extra photos, let me know. My white stool, my rug and anything else that you see other than the item discussed are not included in the auction! PAYMENT IS DUE IMMEDIATELY(SAME DAY) AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN AUCTION. I’m happy to combine shipments for you, when possible - depending upon size and weight, it might not always be possible, though. If you win an item and plan to bid on another, please email me to let me know that you are looking at other items, hold to pay for the first item and request a combined shipping invoice once you’ve won the other item/s. If you pay for an item, I have to ship it, I cannot hold for items that close another day, if you pay for the first item. Unless you ask me for an invoice earlier, I will invoice on Sunday for multiple items purchased the week prior, or after 5 days have passed since the item that you won has closed. 5 (FIVE) days from the closing of the FIRST bought item will be the longest I can wait time wise to combine, and I ask for immediate payment after invoice for combined orders. I NOW HAVE EBAY'S UNPAID ITEM ASSISTANT SET TO AUTOMATICALLY FILE A CLAIM FOR PAYMENT 8 DAYS AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN AUCTION, WHEN NO PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE - PLEASE KNOW. Please know that some items cannot be combined, though, do to size, weight, or safety of the items. Many items that are set to ship in USPS FLAT RATE boxes; I cannot combine due to size restrictions. Please look at the shipping alternatives in the listings. I only mail USPS and pack in the best manner that we feel safe – I cannot change shipment methods after the close of an auction (i.e. rolling an old map to save money when I have it set to ship flat), especially if I feel the requested method is not safe. Again, I only ship USPS and charge actual cost to ship only. I ship within one business day of receipt of your payment, unless there’s a holiday that closes the post office, or I will notify you otherwise. As I shop for treasures on the weekends, I most often do not ship on Saturday. Most items closing and paid for on Friday will be shipped on Monday. Many of my items come from local rural estate sales and auctions. They are coming right from the barn or attic to you - dust, dirt, cobwebs and all! I do not clean and polish before I sell – they are in the condition found, as you see in my photos, and I leave the patina exactly as it was when I bought the item. I do my best to photo and describe all thoroughly. Please email me before bidding if you do not use PayPal, as Paypal is the only requested method of payment on this listing. With postage rates increasing regularly, I am shipping more and more items Parcel Select. Parcel Select travels by land or rail and the packages do not leave the regional post office until they fill up a bin going in the same direction (so the estimated delivery is truly only an estimate – not exact). The post office estimates 5-7 days, but it can go up higher, sometimes even 3-4 weeks in peak mailing times like the holidays. I always provide a tracking number, so you can see where your item is on any day. Sales tax will be added for Illinois buyers. …and thanks so much for looking, I appreciate having you as a customer!
