of Any Description is Used.
Tooth Pastes were by far the most popular commodity sold in pots with printed lids. It is thought that there are 998 different printed lids, now all are very scarce, many rare, this one falls in the rare category. This lid claims to contain no artificial coloring – a criticism of the carmine added to produce cherry colored tooth pastes.
The pot base has a few small chips which are not visible when on display. Please consider the images as the best part of my description.
Most pots have some level of crazing, may have spots of discoloration, light hairline cracks and minor chips and fleabites that should be considered patina, additions to character and do not detract from its display value. These are expected due to age, use and let’s not forget they were often buried for decades before being dug up and rescued.
I offer substantial savings in shipping costs when multiple items are combined into one package. I work hard to find the most economical shipping options available by checking multiple discount carriers.
I will credit any overpayment of postage charged to you after finding the best shipping option. I check both ParcelMonkey.com and Shipgooder.com for the most economical delivery to save you shipping dollars. These companies negotiate better rates with USPS, Fed Ex and UPS than individuals can on their own.
