Is there a long time purchase guarantee for Holst Porcelain?
The term "post-purchase guarantee" comes from a bygone era in which the valuable
porcelain was usually more expensive than the cabinet in which it was kept.
After a large number of bankruptcies, especially of the major German traditional
brands, the consumer had to learn that the promise of a "guarantee" ultimately
does not represent an insurance of the former promise to buy.
the commercial end user in particular expects a follow-on commitment, since its
use cycles are characterized by different requirements than those of the private
end user. Holst Porcelain grants at least 10 years as a promise of Repurchase.
This after-sale guarantee extends to all series from Holst Porcelain from the
appearance in the collection. If individual items have been removed from the
warehouse collection, they can be re-produced at any time as a special
production. The minimum quantity is 5,000 pieces. If the quantity of a repeat
order of a single customer for the start a production is not sufficient, the
production waits for further repeat orders from other customers for this item.
Insofar as a customer does not want to wait with a repeat order, the latter may
arrange for an immediate post-production at Holst Porcelain in return for the
acceptance of the batch costs. More detailed information of the additional
purchase guarantee can be found here.
