The products we sell on our website are personally hand-picked by our team from collectors and design enthusiasts from all over Europe. We have travelled (and we constantly travel still) thousands of kilometres to gather the most representative design objects produced in countries well-known in the field, such as Belgium, Denmark, The Czech Republic (the former Czechoslovakia being until not so long ago one of the global leaders of the glass industry), Finland, France, Italy, Sweden, Norway, etc.
Mid-Century issues Certificates of Authenticity for all the products we have enough data of, including the factory and/or the designer. All the products for which you will find at least one of these two elements on the product page are accompanied by such a Certificate, which you will find in the package, when the product is delivered to you. These Certificates contain all the identification details of the respective piece (photograph, size, weight, the designer and/ or producer, description, the country of origin, the period, etc.).
For the pieces whose manufacturer/ producer we do not know, nor do we know who the designer is, we issue Certificates of Origin, which specify the country and the period when the piece was produced, as well as other identification details of the respective piece.
No. Having pieces designed by famous designers does not mean – anywhere in the world – that they were the ones who manufactured them; they only designed them, or they produced the prototype. However, a significant part of the pieces presented on the website are produced manually. Almost all glass, china and porcelain pieces (except for the ones where it is clearly mentioned that they are made of pressed glass), as well as the majority of the furniture pieces (between the 1930s and the 1980s, almost all furniture pieces were produced either manually, or semi-manually). When you wish to know precisely whether a product is manually or industrially made, please do not hesitate to contact us in writing, should this information not be clearly understood from the description of the respective piece.
It is possible to modify an order only after you have checked the status of the initial order in the Client account tab and you have made sure that it is not already sent out.
If it is not sent out, you can place a new order (with what you wish to add to the initial one) as soon as possible, and we will ensure that you receive both orders in one package, so that you do not pay twice for transport.
If the combined value of these two orders is higher than the minimum order for Free shipping, then you will not pay any delivery costs.
However, considering the added weight of the second order to the initial package, if the two orders’ cost is below the amount required for Free shipping, it is possible that there are additional costs to the transport than what is valid for the initial order only (however, this would be less than to have the two orders delivered separately). Please read carefully our Payment and delivery policy page to find out the transport costs/ kg, depending on the chosen delivery method
At the moment there is no mandatory minimum order on our website.
Mid-Century pieces can be ordered online, directly on our website (www.mid-century.net). You can find HERE a list of the steps that you need to follow in this respect. Also, HERE you will find information regarding the payment and delivery methods that we accept, as well as regarding the areas where we deliver our products.
Unfortunately, an already placed order cannot be modified. However, you can cancel the entire order, but only after you have checked its status in the Client account tab and you have made sure that it was not already shipped.
We ship the orders in a maximum of 24 business hours from the date when the order is confirmed. However, in most cases, the orders are shipped on the same day, if the order was confirmed before 1:00 PM of the respective business day, or during the first part of the following business day. You can always find more details HERE.
