RARE LARGE ANTIQUE NIGERIAN CARVED WOODEN YORUBA AFRICAN TRIBAL FIGURE NOT IBEJI
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 superb antique Yoruba wood carving of a well armed figure. It is certainly an older piece probably late 19th or very early 20th Century with traces of red ochre and a very old European varnish which has developed a good patina over the surface. It is a very imposing figure of a good size at around 14.5" / 37cms tall and with a maximum width of just under 6" / 15cms. The underside shows a great deal of genuine wear and also has the name 'Jean' penned onto the surface (this too is very old). A fine piece of West African carving, I am selling it at a low start and with .

Postage & Packing For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 27TH MARCH 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.
