EXCEPTIONAL ANTIQUE 18/19C CARVED COQUILLA NUT FIGURAL SNUFF BOX TREEN NR
I will be selling a large number of interesting antiques including Tribal art, Chinese, Japanese, and European antiques. I will possibly be selling over two days so please check again on FRIDAY as there may be more pieces for sale. PLEASE NOTE: This sale is in GB Pounds Sterling.
This is one of the best figural coquilla nut snuff boxes I have had. It is in the form of a portly gentleman, possibly a Turk with headdress, moustache and inlaid painted glass eyes. Unusually for this type of snuff the head is actually part of the main nut used for carving and only the hat and feet are attached separately so it must have been quite a large coquilla nut. It has a wonderful patina, the hinge works perfectly and the lid snaps shut tightly. This type of object (especially because of the material used) is often attributed as being the work of sailors or Napoleonic prisoners of war and this stunning example would fit in any collection of treen, snuff boxes, marine artifacts or prisoner of war work. I am selling it at a low start price and with .

Postage & Packing For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 20TH FEBRUARY to MONDAY 25TH FEBRUARY so payment must please be received by SUNDAY 24TH at the very latest. PLEASE be a little patient with the post - I will get them posted asap but I work on my own, often have a fair amount to post and I do pack carefully.
Any delays by the postal services either at my end or abroad are rarely my fault. Barring incident I post out at the latest 3 working days after receiving cleared payment but sometimes an item is slowed up by a backlog of post or delayed whilst being processed through customs. To give you an idea it generally takes about 3-7 working days within Europe and 9 - 14 working days to the U.S. / rest of the world. If speed is of the essence then I can use a courier (DHL / FEDEX etc.) but prices for couriers start at around £30 / £40GBP for the very smallest object and VERY quickly escalate depending on size, weight and destination. Please note also that there has been a considerable hike in postage prices by the Royal Mail this year. I add on very little, often not enough to cover the packaging materials, so the price I quote really is as fair as possible.
