SUPERB ANTIQUE 19TH C PERUVIAN SOUTH AMERICA SPANISH COLONIAL SOLID SILVER DISH
I may have two days of listings this week so please check again on Friday just in case. I will be selling a very large number of interesting antiques including tribal art, Chinese, Islamic, Indian and European antiques. PLEASE NOTE: This sale is in US Dollars.
This is one of two fine pieces of Spanish colonial silver I am selling this week. This is a very good and quite rare antique 19th Century Spanish Colonial silver twin handled dish, possibly a shallow drinking cup. It is Peruvian in origin and is hammered and worked to the centre with the Peruvian coat of arms and the handles are attractively made in the form of squirrels. It in not marked as is typical of South American silver but it acid tests as solid silver - probably coin silver. It weighs about 62g. A similar example can be found on the British Museum website. I am selling it at a very low starting price and with .
It is my policy not to end standard sales early with a 'buy it now' and at the end of an sale I will not make second chance offers. 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
Fair overall condition. Some slight damage around the edges where it has bent out of shape a little and split very slightly and the handles have some damage as they are lifting slightly where attached.
It has a diameter of about 5.5" / 13.9cms (handle to handle) and weighs about 62g.

Postage & Packing
For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 24TH JULY to MONDAY 29TH JULY so please make payment as early as you are able and if possible within 3 days. 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 GBP only): $12 USD.
UK: Special Delivery: $12.30 USD.
Europe: Royal Mail international signed for (insured to $77.50 USD only): $15.20 USD. Extra insurance will cost an additional $4.03 USD should you wish to have it. This is a signed for service which offers full or limited tracking (depending on your country).
U.S and rest of the world: Royal Mail international signed for (insured to $77.50 USD only): $16.75 USD. Extra insurance will cost an additional $4.03 USD should you wish to have it. 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!).
***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.***
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.
