What a surprise

I was researching arch designs on google images and I came across this Antique arch.It is described thus:Antique heavy wrought iron garden rose arch in scroll design, with traces of old green paint, English, circa 1940. Rare form to give added interest to garden paths, providing support for rose vines etc. Has extended length to anchor arch in ground. 94 inches high, 40 1/2 inches wide, 17inches deep. When installed in ground 80 inches high. $850.Maker: EnglishDate: Early 20th C.Dimensions: 94 H x 40.5 W x 17 DPrice: $850.00I am certain it is one of our Standard scrolled arches no earlier than 1972 most likely post 1986. We charge about £68 each for them in black primer by the look of their price tag $850 we are seriously undercharging.Perhaps the answer is to distress them a bit, let them rust then charge a more realistic price.What should I do, tell them that their acreditation department has made an error or up my prices?To see for yourselves vist their site.antique arch

  • looks like one of yours phill get in touch and say you have found five more and they can have em for $5oo each LOL
  • I keep thinking I ought to get in touch Chris but can't quite think of what to say, if they have spent a lot on it they could end up with red faces but by the same token it wouldn't be fair on an innocent punter to get caught out.
    Mind you it is rather flattering to think that someone thinks that our products are worth so much money, perhaps we are selling ourselves short.
  • Not a bad idea Colin.
  • I have sent them an email and await their response

"+ 1 for the einhell. I had an older model than this but was very pleased with it for the money. Had it for three years I think before it died a death, but I was using for far more than it was designed for. I thought it did a really good job, and the…"
