RETURNS POLICY

We are confident your purchase will meet and exceed your expectations but if you need to return an item to us, please read the following guidelines below:

All MATCH pewter is cast (often in antique molds) or spun, and finished by hand in our workshops in Northern Italy. Any slight variances that may occur during production or hand finishing are characteristics of our pewter and unique process to be enjoyed, not defects or grounds for return.

Please note: to process your return, you'll need a Return Authorization (RA) number from us. Without this, we won't be able to accept the return. Please see the instructions below on how to obtain your Return Authorization from MATCH.

If you are unsatisfied with your purchase from MATCH1995.COM, we offer a full refund on approved returns based on the original online order, for up to 30 days from the date of purchase, with the following conditions:

  • MATCH will provide a return shipping label in cases of shipping damage/breakage, defects or mis-shipments. Returns for any other reason are the responsibility of the customer.
  • MATCH must be informed of shipping damages, breakage, defects or mis-shipments within 10 days of receipt of shipment. Only in this way can we pay the return charges for shipping damage returns.
  • To process your return, MATCH will request photos of the shipping damages, breakage, defects or mis-shipment.
  • All other return shipping charges for refund, exchange or credit returns will be paid by the customer.
  • MATCH cannot accept returns on any items that have been custom engraved, so please take extra care when ordering these pieces.
