!!!!!!Please be aware that i am NOT, inany way an expert and so have tried to describe the object thati see in front of me. Although i have had some helpful guidance from a local sale house andam in receiptof some written information that came with some of the items there are others i do NOT know much about. SoULTIMATELY PLEASE JUDGE FOR YOURSELF AND offer ACCORDINGLY!!
ALL LISTING HAVE LOTS OF PHOTOS TO BACK UP ANY LACK OF WRITTEN DETAILS.
Description: (LARGE PICTURES BELOW)
A19th century Chinese export miniature model of a early form of rickshaw or pasenger push bike, that was pushed from behind by the driver and with a wheel infront instead of the later two wheeled, pulled versions that are still used today across Asia.
Profusely decorated with filligree design silver work, very intricate and skilfully made. Great little umbrella that would have protected driver and passenger (in the real thing of course)
The metal has been tested as 925 grade or above by my local jeweller but techniqually i am selling this as white metal as there are no makers marks that i can see.
Condition: Item has use and age related wear marks and tarnish to silver.There is a small amount of damage where a piece of filigree is missing from the foot rest area and a small break to the wire closein the same area.Also the right rear suspension looks like it might have at the joint but it is still attached. The rear axle seems to be bent but the wheels turn easily and it does roll along. Other areas seem solid but please look at picture and judge for yourselves.
(PLEASE ALSO USE PICS BELOW AS A CONDITION GUIDE)

TERMS & CONDITIONS
CUSTOMER SATISFACTION / response
- I hope you are very happy with your purchase.
- I work hard to satisfy every customer that has bought an item from me so you feel comfortable leaving positive response and nothing less than an overall Detailed Seller Rating (DSR) of 5.
- For whatever reason, if you are considering giving a low DSR, please do write to me and give me an opportunity to address your concerns first. You may think that you are leaving a reasonable rating by giving a seller DSR's of 4****'s, but 's response system treats anything less than a 5*****'s as sub-standard and penalizes sellers for DSR ratings that average under 5.00, which means it count's against me on my response score.
After you have received the item and have left response, i will know you are happy with the item and i will leave positive response to you.
