HUGE TEAK WOOD CARVED ASIAN
ELEPHANT HEAD SHELF
A very well carved and detailed
Asian elephant's wall shelf head made from teak, this is
a solid piece and very heavy. I have another up for
sale slightly smaller.
Elephants use their tusks to dig
for roots and water, strip bark from trees and even
fight each other. Unfortunately their tusks have got
them into trouble because of the value to some humans,
(ESPECIALLY THE CHINESE} many Elephants have been and
still are being killed for their tusks along with Tigers
for their skins, teeth etc. This trade is highly illegal
today, but it has not deterred the CHINESE from killing
1000's of these beautiful creatures so they can keep
their old ancient out of date customs.
Due to the size, shape and being
slightly fragile, some pieces will
have to be specially wrapped, boxed
and insured for loss only which
shows in the shipping cost, I do not
intend to take any chances with
better safe than sorry, it would be
heart breaking to think it arrived
broken and deserves looking after.
There are a lot of retired American,
English, Germans etc living here in
Thailand enjoying their last days in
hotter tropical climes. With being
out and about every day looking for
items to buy I meet many foreigners
living in strange out of the way
places, I also do a lot of
advertising in local papers etc
saying I will buy any collections,
Antiques and so on, things are
starting to pick up, I am getting a
few Thai ladies calling saying their
husbands have passed away and have
items that they do not know what to
do with, there is some great stuff

I try my best to bring
you unique and sometimes very rare items, I
travel to many out of the way places where there
are no hotels, its normally my bike, sleeping
a tree and lots of mosquito's, to bring you
these pieces. I can sell you an item, wrap it as
carefully as I can and then ship it to you. I
cannot control what Thai post charges for
shipping or tell you the exact time it takes to

idea from past dealings, I have no control what
so ever over any postal service's or U.S. customs.

with these conditions DON'T offer. There are many
new buyers now on taking advantage of good
honest sellers leaving negative response and low
DSR's for silly reasons.
I want to
take a moment to briefly explain what getting 5 Stars on
the DSR's mean when you leave response.
give 4 stars, it may seem like a great score, however it
is a failing grade for .
a 4 in shipping time means "quickly" , however,
considers this a sub par mark.
standards require sellers to maintain 4.8 and above or
be penalized with higher fees and more, in the long run
that will come back on buyers as sellers will have to
increase the price of the item to cover s fees.
time should only be did the seller ship the item within
the time from explained in the listing.
I strive for
5 star service by stating up front my policies along
with my shipping rates.
