FINE RARE PR ANTIQUE NAGA TRIBAL ART INDIAN COWRIE SHELL ARM BAND CUFF ORNAMENTS
I will be selling a very 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 a part of an excellent group of Naga items I am selling this week so please view my other sales. These cuffs show great workmanship with each cowrie shell individually sewn on, the dyed red hair detail has been hand stitched and the woven red and yellow dyed grasses to each end also typically Naga in style and can be seen replicated on all the other Naga items I am selling this week. As with the other Naga pieces these are certainly antique and well used. I am selling this pair at a very low starting price and with .

Postage & Packing
For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 3RD JULY so please make payment as early as you are able and if possible within 3 days. 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. I also post in the order that things are paid for.
Any delays by the postal services either at my end or abroad are rarely my fault. I always 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.
