OLD ANTIQUE CHINESE FAUX IVORY CARVED FIGURES BOX CASE SNUFF NEEDLE SEWING PIN

Description:

OLD ANTIQUE CHINESE FAUX IVORY CARVED FIGURES BOX CASE SNUFF NEEDLE SEWING PIN

A stunning little antique Chinese / Chinese export faux ivory box / case depicting deeply carved figures and village scene with intricate detail showing a bridge , houses, trees and mountains . Superbly made showing wonderful craftsmanship in such a small scale, with the lid being so beautifully made so that it screws on perfectly and still fits perfectly tightly too.

Unsure as to this beautiful little cases / boxes original use, possibly as a sewing accessory for pins / needles or for snuff or similar such use.

The box is in mainly lovely condition but does have some minor faults commensurate with age and with these being, that there is a tiny hole showing to both the lid and to the base , these appear to be from a natural fault, to the top it is hard to notice this until the lid is turned the other way up, there is also an extremely fine age / hairline showing to the inside of the box/ case, this does not go right through and doesn't appear to be causing any weakness to the case at all and other than the above mentioned with no other damage, chips, cracks or restoration and with the many pictures giving a good representation of condition and where it can be judged on it's own merit, so please do check these out carefully before offerding.

Measures ; ( 3.2cm ) 1.1/4" inches high x ( 2.8cm ) 1.1/8" inches in diameter .

All pictures on this listing are of the actual item for sale .

Please check if intending to offer that you are happy with the estimated p&p cost quoted for this specific item, the costs quoted are inclusive of postage and packaging but do not include insurance unless stated, p&p is estimated for buyers convenience ,generally estimated on the high side to avoid disappointment and so may be subject to slight change up / down once the item is packed . Costs are shown and estimated to the best of my ability for all countries in the click on drop down box Postage ' see details ' at the top of the listing. I do not make any profit from postage although there is a packaging charge factored into the quoted cost to cover the cost of packaging materials, this is generally anything from 50p - £3.50 per item, sometimes slightly more or less depending on the size and delicacy of the item and materials needed to pack safely, lots of care goes into making sure your item is packed safely and securely so it reaches you in one piece no matter how it is treated on the way. If you are unhappy with any of the above , I quite understand but please do not offer on the item .

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT In the event of the end price of any of my listings exceeding £50 the postage cost for OVERSEAS shipment will be increased by £5.30 to include a SIGNED-FOR service. Another extra £2.50 covers items for up to £500.00 , for China this only covers for up to £250.00. These costs are not of my making and are Royal Mails exact costs of insuring as are the postage costs and these can be checked on their website PLEASE WAIT FOR INVOICE TO BE SENT BEFORE MAKING YOUR PAYMENT. This has become necessary as a result of changes in Pay-Pal policy - in the event of loss or theft in the post they willno longer accept the freely provided 'Proof of Posting' certificate. Unfortunately due to the odd unscrupulous buyers I now have to send all U.K. items by recorded delivery, this being by Royal Mail 1st class recorded delivery unless stated otherwise. All overseas items under 2kg in weight are sent by Royal Mail air mail small packet / International signed for / if under 2kg in weight.

Always happy to combine items for postage as long as it is feasable to do so with regard to material , size and total weight of the combined items.
