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their old ancient out of date customs.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 these pieces, 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 turning up.

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 bag, 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 arrive to you, and can only give you a rough idea from past dealings, I have no control what so ever over any postal service's or U.S. customs. I use bubble wraps and peanuts to cushion each item from possible mishandling during shipping. If for any reason, the item is broken, please email within 24 hours along withpictures of the broken item, original box inside and outside.
I try to take good photo's with different angles, I also put all the information I know about the piece on the page including Height, Width and Weight, I also state clearly at the bottom of the page what it will cost me to ship it to you, I do not charge for the box and wrapping which is also expensive here as it has to be imported. Don't be leaving me a 2 or 3 star rating about shipping or anything else, everything you need to know is here on the page, if you disagree 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.
When you give 4 stars, it may seem like a great score, however it is a failing grade for .
For instance a 4 in shipping time means "quickly" , however, considers this a sub par mark.
Their 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.
Shipping 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.
If you were pleased with the transaction, please respond with all 5 stars!
