1934 Vase and candlestick from Empire Porcelain Company
Tonight sees Auld Curiosities list the 401st item here on the website, some have sold but a good number remain to keep things ticking over. For this listing I have chosen a small vase and candlestick pairing from the Empire Porcelain Company, Stoke Road, Hanley, Stoke on Trent. The company operated from 1896 and manufactured goods in both earthenware and porcelain. This offering is dated to 1934 and features art deco lines with a multi-hued marled/drip glaze type finish. The colours are very much on point for the era and both pieces are offered without any chips, cracks or repair. The vase stands 3 7/8” tall and the candlestick 2 ¼” tall.
Postage will be determined at point of sale and is a cost to the buyer. We determine costs to each item as opposed to having regional postage charges to ensure that our charges are accurate and fair. PLEASE DO NOT BUY AN ITEM WITHOUT ESTABLISHING THE POSTAGE CHARGE TO BE ADDED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE.

Covid 19 may continue to ravage world-wide but Dunedin City and indeed Otago, New Zealand remains free of both the Delta and Omicron variants. This is perhaps a reflection on the polarisation of where the majority of visitors fly into New Zealand, our border controls and the provision of managed isolation strategies – however it also has to be acknowledged that the relaxation of some controls may create a fluid situation for viral spread during the holiday period. As always, Auld Curiosities will endeavour to ensure that any of items being stored and/or dispatched will present minimal risk to others.
If for any reason you find an item does not match the description (written or photographic) please contact Auld Curiosities by email within 7 days of the item arriving, to arrange return and refund.
Packaging and Postage
With every item we sell, it is our intention to take every possible care to have it delivered to you in the same condition as when it left our premises. For this reason, packaging is tailored to each item and provides the maximum protection that we consider the item requires. Any item that arrives in a damaged condition should be referred to your postal service in the first instance for assessment of their handling of the package. If satisfaction is still lacking then we will look to see whether our efforts have been inadequate for fair handling of an item and if it is found to be so we will refund the cost of the item. Postage has now become a major cost in ecommerce so we try to strike a balance that will not unduly add excessive cost to your purchase.
