These variations are the hallmark of hand-painted pottery. We would like to point out that the color in the photos may vary from computer to computer. Not all computer monitors are calibrated to the same standard, so the product you receive may vary slightly in color from the photo on your monitor. Color or piece variations will not be considered defective. All authorized return merchandise must be unused and in its original saleable packaging. No return or exchange on merchandise that shows signs of having been used, scratched, or defaced will be allowed. Returns must be sent freight prepaid and insured by you. Original shipping and handling charges are not not refundable. A photocopy of your invoice showing the invoice number must accompany your return along with a written explanation and a contact phone number where we may be able to reach you. It is the buyer’s responsibility to verify the correctness of style color and size of the items before purchase. All approved refunds will be paid by Company Check or Account Credit, determined by CHOWTIME PRODUCTIONS.COM. A 25% restocking fee will be assessed on all returns deemed to be non-defective. We reserve the right to refuse your return based on our return policy. No cancellations, refunds, or exchanges on special order items or custom order items will be allowed.
