RARE ANTIQUE 19TH C GEORGIAN EARLY ENGLISH CARVED WOODEN TREEN FIGURAL SNUFF BOX
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 one of two exceptional snuff boxes I am selling this week and this example is a wonderful and risque piece of English folk art dating to the very early 1800s. It is in the form of a squatting gentleman with his trousers pulled down. the wood has been painted and has developed a superb patina, the figure still has both his original goggly glass eyes and some hair remains to the side of his face so he would even have had full sideburns! The position of each hand is worth looking out for as it shows how much thought has gone to in making this unique snuff.

Both the attention to detail and condition are immaculate and the lid to the back also in very good working order if a little stiff - this has been inlaid with two small brass pins to help pull it open. This is by far and away one of the best snuffs I have had and I am selling it at a very low starting price and with .

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 Superb condition. Light wear but no major damage or repairs. He will stand of his own accord on the right very flat surface but the slightest movement and he is bound to fall over.

It stands a fraction under 3" / 7.7cms tall when in the squatting position.

Postage & Packing For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 24TH APRIL to Monday 29TH APRIL 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: 1st Class Recorded Delivery (insured to £50 only): £5.10 GBP.

UK: Special Delivery: £7.95 GBP.

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!).

Please find attached a few extra images of the lid and the inside of the box as I realised I hadn't put any on - IMPORTANT - Please note I also missed a small amount of damage to the edge of the lid where a sliver of the wood is missing. The lid still closes so it isn't a great problem but it is something I hadn't seen or mentioned.
