Click images to enlargeDescription I will require immediate payment for this item – no later than Sunday, June 29th. Please know this before going forward. Also, be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of all of my listings as I usually have MORE photos down there, too! Also please note that I’ve made some changes to my payment and combined shipment policies, which you can see highlighted in my detail below.
Here's a one of a kind piece that I know you don't have! It's really a wonderful folk art piece - being all hand carved form wood into the image of two fancy Koi fish. I THINK that it was once or was made to be part of a base of some sorts - the cut out rectangle in the center makes you think that maybe it had a matching carved piece that fit there going the other way to form an X base. I don't have another piece - just this one - so the possibilities are limited to your imagination as to what you want to do with it.....and you will want to do with it....because it's beautiful! It appears to be a project unfinished, as, as far as I can tell - it was never stained or varnished, although it does have a darkened patina from age. It measures 13 3/4" widest, 6 7/8" tallest and is 1/2" thickest at the side. it weighs 1/2 lb. The bottoms/mouth of the fish are flat, so it would have stood independently if it had a cross piece as I'm thinking. As it does not, it does not stand securely on its own - it will stand, but it will also fall over easily. You could use it for your art project, piece of furniture or decor, although if you want to hang on the wall, you'd have to figure out how as it does not have hardware. It's in excellent solid and sturdy condition structurally - totally strong with no cracks or structrual issues that I can find. there's some dark spots from age and general dirt, but mostly on the edges - like in my fuzzy photo 19. There's some small nicks on the bottom, but those very well may be original - they are shallow and on the bottom only. It's carved on both sides -this is not a one sided piece. I just cannot say enough about this one - it's a beautiful had carved piece!
Customer Satisfaction is extremely important to me. If you receive an item and are not satisfied in any way, please contact me before leaving response.
If you are using a phone or tablet to look at listings, you may not be seeing full descriptions – please make sure you are – I list sizes, condition and many photos on all of my items – so if you are not seeing that, you’re not seeing all I have about the listing.
Please ask if you have any questions, or feel free to inform me if you have any information about one of my listings. As with any of my items, if you ever need extra photos, let me know. My white stool, my rug and anything else that you see other than the item discussed are not included in the sale!
PAYMENT IS DUE IMMEDIATELY(SAME DAY) AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN sale.
I’m happy to combine shipments for you, when possible - depending upon size and weight, it might not always be possible, though. If you win an item and plan to offer on another, please email me to let me know that you are looking at other items, hold to pay for the first item and request a combined shipping invoice once you’ve won the other item/s. I have to ship right away if you pay for an item, I have to ship it, I cannot hold for items that close another day, if you pay for the first item. Unless you ask me for an invoice earlier, I will invoice on Sunday for multiple items purchased the week prior, or after 5 days have passed since the item that you won has closed. 5 (FIVE) days from the closing of the FIRST bought item will be the longest I can wait time wise to combine, and I ask for immediate payment after invoice for combined orders. I NOW HAVE 'S UNPAID ITEM ASSISTANT SET TO AUTOMATICALLY FILE A CLAIM FOR PAYMENT 8 DAYS AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN sale, WHEN NO PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE - PLEASE KNOW. Please know that some items cannot be combined, though, do to size, weight, or safety of the items. Many items that are set to ship in USPS FLAT RATE boxes; I cannot combine due to size restrictions. Please look at the shipping alternatives in the listings. I only mail USPS and pack in the best manner that we feel safe – I cannot change shipment methods after the close of an sale (i.e. rolling an old map to save money when I have it set to ship flat), especially if I feel the requested method is not safe. Again, I only ship USPS and charge actual cost to ship only. I ship within one business day of receipt of your payment, unless there’s a holiday that closes the post office, or I will notify you otherwise. As I shop for treasures on the weekends, I most often do not ship on Saturday. Most items closing and paid for on Friday will be shipped on Monday.
Many of my items come from local rural estate sales and sales. They are coming right from the barn or attic to you - dust, dirt, cobwebs and all! I do not clean and polish before I sell – they are in the condition found, as you see in my photos, and I leave the patina exactly as it was when I bought the item. I do my best to photo and describe all thoroughly.
Please email me before offerding if you do not use PayPal, and we can discuss possible payment alternatives.
With postage rates increasing regularly, I am shipping more and more items Parcel Select. Parcel Select travels by land or rail and the packages do not leave the regional post office until they fill up a bin going in the same direction (so the estimated delivery is truly only an estimate – not exact). The post office estimates 5-7 days, but it can go up higher, sometimes even 3-4 weeks in peak mailing times like the holidays. I always provide a tracking number, so you can see where your item is on any day.
Sales tax will be added for Illinois buyers.
…and thanks so much for looking, I appreciate having you as a customer!
