2 Gillinder Milk Glass Dresser Decanters w Original Stoppers. Antique Gargoyle Bottles, also known as Lions Head Bottles. Unique Gift. Ri7a


At Memory Lane

Here is a set of opaline decanters.

This milk glass set of antique decanters are known as the Lions Head, Lion in the Grass, Gargoyle, or Monkey Bottles. (I like calling them Gargoyle Decanters ‘cause I love the way it sounds - so medieval.) The decanters have quite a round belly to them. The milk glass has an almost satinized look to it.

These bottles came with these stoppers. Some of these gargoyle bottles, you will see with the gargoyle stoppers and some you will see with these stoppers. Both stoppers are how Gillinder distributed this particular bottle. These stoppers were not replaced, but rather, original at the time they bottles were created.

The set appears to have been a set since their beginning. I say this because of the paint and the paint wear on both of the bottles is the same.

Glass Condition: Excellent. As they were formed. Please note that the lip of the bottles, as well as, the end of each of the stoppers has been sawed off. This is the way it was done at the time.
Paint Condition: Poor. Which is common for the age of the bottle since the paint was cold applied; that is, the glass was not refired after the paint was applied.
Gold Paint Condition. Excellent. Having said that – understand I do not consider the gold paint to be “pretty”. As they say, it was as it was applied.

Additionally, any messages sent to the seller via the Etsy conversation system will also be retained on the Etsy site. None of this information is used for any type of marketing, spamming, or solicitation on my part. (And I will not be sending you a Christmas card either.)

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long does it normally take you to ship an item?

    All orders received by 8:00 PM Eastern Time are processed (mailed) the next day. I usually drop off packages at the post office in the morning six days a week; I normally drop off packages to the UPS drop off point in the afternoon five days a week.
    - Etsy does not have a system where we can list UPS as an alternative. I ship via USPS or UPS, whichever is least expensive and quickest. I refund shipping overages paid by you.

    What do you do if the shipping calculator has over estimated or under estimated the shipping charges?

    If the shipping calculation is over by more than 50 cents, I will reimburse you. Yup, I will reimburse you 50 cents.

    If the shipping calculator is under by any amount, you will not know about it; that is, I will not request that you make any further payment because of an error of mine, the calculator, or the system.

    If I contact you, when can I expect a reply? What are your normal working hours?

    My normal hours seven days a week are 1:00 - 9:00 PM. I answer questions within two hours during this time.
    On my off hours, I will normally return your question as soon as I open up for the day.

    I do not operate with any smart devices - only dumb ones, as they simply do not work in dead zones, so I periodically throughout my day check the old desktop.

    Are there any other requirements to return an item? For what reasons do you allow returns?

    1. You, the buyer, shall ensure the items are received by me in the SAME condition in which you received it. You are not required to use the original packaging and box. Feel free to use your own if you so desire
    2. In addition, please provide me, via a convo, the tracking number within one eight calendar days of receiving the item.

    Returns can be made for any reason whatsoever. You will receive the original cost of the item and the original shipping. I do not charge a bogus restocking fee. Be aware that the cost to return the item (shipping) will not be reimbursed to you.

    Do I, the buyer, pay for shipping insurance?

    As you may or may not be aware, shipping insurance benefits the seller. I normally pay for the insurance, if any. The only time, you (the buyer) would pay for the insurance is if YOU request it.

    I do not normally buy additional insurance as I tend to pack for a nuclear blast...or, at least, for war.

    Do you accept offers?

    NO, I am sorry. I do not.

    I do, however, encourage you to shop around. In many of my listings, I leave a reference at the bottom of the description to assist you in your research. This way, you will be able to compare apples with apples.

    What is the difference between purchasing at your etsy store, AtMemoryLane.store and purchasing at your stand alone shop, AtMemoryLane.shop?

    --- I usually have a larger selection of items in my stand alone shop - AtMemoryLane.shop.

    ---In addition, all purchases made AtMemoryLane.shop, will receive a 4.4% refund on your purchased item.

    --- You also receive this 4.4% refund on any sale items in the AtMemoryLane.shop.

    ---Sometimes, I have items on sale in the stand alone shop (AtMemoryLane.shop) that I do not have in the etsy marketplace shop.

    --- You can get to AtMemoryLane.shop via any browser.

    If I favorite an item will I receive a discount?

    No. There is no need for me to operate my shop like that. My items are already priced fairly.

    If I place one of your items in my cart will I receive a discount?

    No. Sorry, but I do not inflate my prices to begin with so there is no need to discount them.
