Stunning Japanese Meiji Period Faux Ivory Carved Carved Lion Trinket Box Antique:
This superb Japanese Meiji period faux ivory lidded trinket box measures 70mm (3'') across x 36mm (1.5'') deep and weighs 74 grams. The lid is beautifully carved with a roaring lion and the whole piece has a fantastic patina only achieved on this type of natural material with genuine age. It dates to around 1890 and is in good condition with the lid still fitting well and one significant stress crack shown in photo 5. A fine quality piece with a great colour and grain demonstrating the exceptional quality of the Japanese carvers of the late Victorian period.
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me. All our items are extremely well packed to save them from damage in transit. If you are not happy with this article based on the information I have provided I will always happily refund minus the cost of any postage.
