RARE ANTIQUE ISLAMIC PERSIAN CARVED COCO DE MER KASHKUL DERVISH BEGGING BOWL
Happy New Year to everyone! I will be selling a large number of interesting antiques including Tribal art, Chinese, Japanese, and European antiques. I will be selling over two days so please check again on FRIDAY as there will certainly be more pieces for sale in all categories. PLEASE NOTE: This sale is in GB Pounds Sterling.
This is an interesting coco de mer kashkul or alms bowl of a type, with a handle, I haven't seen very often. I would imagine that it was for a travelling dervish or similar and with a hole as a spout at one end could easily double up as a pouring vessel, perhaps with religious significance. I would imagine that it dates to the early part of the 20th Century and the coco de mer is in fantastic condition with a superb black colour and glossy patina.
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
Excellent condition. Light surface wear and other age related general wear but no damage and no repairs.
It is about 11.8" / 30cms long and stands (with the handle) about 9.25" / 23.5cms tall.

Postage & Packing
For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 30TH JANUARY to MONDAY 4TH FEBRUARY so payment must please be received by SUNDAY 3RD at the very latest. 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.
Any delays by the postal services either at my end or abroad are rarely my fault. Barring incident I 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): £7.50 GBP.
UK: Special Delivery: £10.75 GBP.
Europe: £15.77.- Royal Mail Signed For Airmail. This figure does not include £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: £25.11 GBP.- Royal Mail Signed For Airmail. This figure does not include £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.
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)
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 superb Native American Northwest Coast totem pole by renowned Kwakiutl artist Charlie James; a very fine Napoleonic pow bone domino set; a coco de mer kashkul; a rare fully carved Tongan paddle club; a large turn of the century Maori carved wooden box; a very well patinated Congo Kuba cup; a beautiful Edo period netsuke of a puppy; several Chinese jade carvings including a really fun Cultural Revolution example; two super Fijian ula throwing clubs; a Zulu prestige staff and many more antiques.
