RARE ANTIQUE 19C ITALIAN GRAND TOUR EBONY & BOXWOOD FRUITWOOD WOODEN BOX TREEN
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 beautiful Italian box dating to the 19th Century but clearly with earlier influences. It is made out of arious woods including ebony and boxwood or fruitwood and has some stunning scrolling floral carving in both shallow and higher relief and inlaid panels of classical female figures to the lid, the front, back and sides with barrels and figural pipes. The reclining figure to the lid is a work of art in its own right and the whole piece has a beautiful patina and would undoubtedly enhance any box collection or collection of Grand Tour works of art. Make no mistake this would have been an expensive piece at the time it was made! There is a later inscription to the underside which reads "To Mary from Aunt Maria Florence 17-11-1943" or possibly "1963". Please view my other sales for similar European works of art and carvings.

Please read down the entire listing for Dimensions, Condition, Postage & Payment Details - most of the information you will need is here on this page but please get in touch if you don't find what you are looking for. Condition & Dimensions Good overall appearance. The lid has warped with age, the figure has damage to the arm, the lock fitting is damaged. Age related hairlines & other light wear as per photos.

It is about 11.25" / 28.5cms wide across the lid by 6.75" / 17.2cms deep (again taken from the lid) and stands about 2.4" / 6cms tall (to the lid and not including the figure).

Postage & Packing For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 29TH MAY so please make payment as early as possible. 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.

UK: Special Delivery: £12 GBP.

Europe: Royal Mail Signed For Airmail: £18.20. This figure includes £2.60 for insurance over £50 GBP. This is a signed for service which offers full or limited tracking (depending on your country).

U.S. and Rest Of World: Royal Mail Signed For Airmail: £24.20 GBP. This figure includes £2.60 for insurance over £50 GBP. This is a signed for service which offers full or limited tracking (depending on your country) and insurance. Please do not ask me to falsify customs documents, thank you.***Any import duties or taxes applicable are payable by the Buyer. Please enquire with postage queries, requirements or any other questions you may have prior to offerding.*** Where possible I will of course combine shipping for multiple purchases (however if, for example, you win a walking stick and a box of some description this wouldn't be very practical!).

Payment Details (Important: Please Read) UK: PayPal.
Rest Of The World: PayPal only.
In the event of a recorded/traceable and insured item going missing in the post I will do everything in my power (provide proof of postage and evidence of value, etc.) to assist in obtaining a full refund from the postal service involved.

***Finally, thank you for taking a look at my sale and please have a look at the other antiques I am saleing this week including a rare Native American Huron embroidered box; a very good early 19th Century treen lever nutcracker; several fine antique Aboriginal boomerangs; many bakelite, amber and other necklaces; good Zulu knobkerries and staffs; an Ovimbundu sceptre; some very fine Zulu bone hairpins / snuff spoons including a rare pair of long horn spoons; some fine pieces of Spanish Colonial silver; Japanese komai work and some good early netsuke; a Napoleonic prisoner of war domino box and other pow work; an early European carved wooden pieta and early German wooden spoon and many more interesting antiques from around the world.***
