SUPERB ANTIQUE 19TH C JAPANESE EDO / MEIJI CARVED WOODEN NETSUKE FIGURE
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 Japanese wooden netsuke dating to the first half of the 19th Century. The subject is charming - a man leaning over / sleeping on a well or a log, the detail in the carving is good, the himotoshi are so worn that a further hole had to be made for continued use and the whole surface has a fine patina and the underside is positively glossy through wear and handling. This is one of three very good netsuke and many Asian works of art I am selling this week so please view my other sales.

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 Very good condition. A few tiny nibbles and the himotoshi has worn through so a new hole was created for continued use but there is no serious damage.

It is about 1.5" / 3.7cms tall by 2" / 5cms deep and 1.8" / 4.6cms wide so it is quite chunky.

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: 1st Class Recorded Delivery (insured to £50 only): £5.10 GBP.

UK: Special Delivery: £7.22 GBP.

Europe: Royal Mail Signed For Airmail: £11.90. 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: £12.40 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.***
