Antique Clear Glass Candy Container. Old Figural Toy Suitcase. Includes Original Wire Bail Handle and Original Tin Slide. UaLA EA707

$40.00

AtMemoryLane

This old candy container is made of pressed glass. It is a glass box in the shape of a suitcase. The exterior of the suitcase is in much detail with buckled straps, a fastened lock, and crosshatching to simulate an expensive leather suitcase. The tin slide is upturned on one end to ensure the candies did not easily fall out. It does not appear that this suitcase ever had any paint on it as there is not even a speck of paint anywhere to be found on the glass or the metal.

Material: Antique Glass, Metal (for the Wire), and Tin (for the Slide)
Color: Clear Glass with an Amethyst Tint to it
Patent Number: 87,851

When created: 1907 – 1911
Who Made: West Brothers Company
Where created: Grapeville, PA, USA
Marks:
- PAT APL’D FOR – The “D” is underscored, raised, and is half the size of all the other letters. It is a capital “D”, not a lower case “d”.
- The number “1” is located on the underside of the glass at the top of the suitcase.

Condition: Good Antique Condition
- The candy container is complete.
- There are no chips or repairs on the entire piece.
- There is a little discoloration on the bottom of the tin slide, but that is it.
- There is a stress crack located on the underside of the glass on the top of the suitcase. You cannot feel it on the top of the glass (the exterior of the suitcase), you can feel it slightly when you touch it from the inside of the suitcase. This same stress crack has been there for the last 20 years in which I have owned it. It has not changed during that time. You can barely see this stress crack as it is barely visible.

Payments

I expect to be paid at time of purchase.

Shipping from United States

I ship to the United States of America (all 50 of them), APOs, FPOs, DPOs, Puerto Rico, the United States Virgin Islands, American Samoa, The Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam.

Your package is important to you AND me.

I ALWAYS reimburse you if the shipping is less than estimated by the Etsy calculator.

I NEVER request additional funds if the shipping is more than estimated.

If payment is received by 8:00 PM Eastern Time, then the package will usually be in the mail the NEXT day. [I end my work day about 9:00 PM.]

I normally ship within one business day of payment and I usually ship SIX days a week. I live in a small town, so my post office is normally only open 29 hours per week. I don't have a problem working around their tight schedule.

Once again - your package is IMPORTANT, not only to you, but also to me.

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.) The information is and was used exclusively for your transaction. The financial information (credit card info) is not provided to the sellers on Etsy so there is nothing to worry about there. Contact information (your name and address) is used exclusively to contact you regarding the items you purchased (if need be), to fulfill your order, and if necessary for legal reasons (for instance for tax purposes).

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 ship daily six days a week --- except when there is a holiday.
In the last year, my statistics show that I ship 100% in 1 day or less; in fact, I have shipped 78% of the time the next business day and 22% of the time same day. (Updated Nov 01, 2020).

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 25 cents, I will reimburse you. Yup, I will reimburse you 25 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.

HOW DO I SEARCH ON ETSY FOR ETSY SELLERS THAT SHIP IN ONE BUSINESS DAY OR LESS?

When doing a search in the Etsy main shopping window,

Simply "tick" the radio button on the left hand side of your search screen under

Shipping

"Ready to Ship in 1 Business Day".

When you do this, you will get results for all the items in the Etsy marketplace that have your item and ship within one business day OR LESS.

Pretty Neat, Huh?

Why wait when you don't have to?

Do you have any sales going on right now?

I have currently half priced a couple of items in my sister stand alone shop (AtMemoryLane.shop).

In addition, I have items on sale in my store, AtMemoryLane.store, as well as my shop, AtMemoryLane.shop.

If you are interested, you can get to AtMemoryLane.shop via any browser.

Are you going on vacation anytime soon?

Nope.
