Basic condition guide

All items sold by 20th Century Collector are authentic and vintage and as such will show some signs of age related wear. Unless stated we will not detail all fault marks relating to age or in production such as bubbles in hand made glass. We will state where an item has ‘more’ than vintage age related condition issues in the description.

For Example

Very Good condition – No chips, cracks or significant signs of wear. This particular item will still be ‘of the period’ and may have some very slight signs of light use.

Good condition – Items will show some signs of age related use, for example a very minor amount of crazing, but with no significant marks, chips or cracks.

Good to Fair condition – As Good, but may have more wear to patterns, light related fading in places or more than a very slight amount of crazing.

Fair condition – As above but with some minor damage or wear. We will state the condition details in most cases.

Our Buying policy 

We have a range of trusted partners and 2 part time staff members  we use to secure the best stock in the best condition. It is currently our policy NOT to buy from private individuals. This is due to the high administrative burden each individual response requires for a small team. Any email requests sent in this regard may not receive a response for this reason

Care of your items 
Please remember that the items listed are vintage in nature and unless stated in the description or you have prior knowledge from the manufacture we strongly recommend that you do not use ceramic items in conjunction with oven cooking (unless stated for this use) and Dishwasher cleaning ( patterns fade and or crazing !).  Microwave use may also apply in some cases but particularly to items from the Pyrex and similar glass ranges, where manufactures used metal aspects in some designs and decoration. Doing so may cause damage to your purchase. 20th Century Collector can not be held responsible for any damage to the item or appliances. There are guides and forums on the internet which provide valuable information for the care of vintage ceramics,glass and wood items and we always recommend that you research the appropriate care methods for your item if you are in doubt to maintain it’s condition.
