SUPERB ANTIQUE EDO / EARLY MEIJI JAPANESE CARVED SIGNED BOXWOOD WOODEN NETSUKE
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 Japanese netsuke, possible of a seated monk and certainly dating to the 19th Century. The underside has a signature I can't quite work out but I have blown it up to a large size so it should be easy enough for someone with a larger list of signatures than I have. I believe the first character is Gyo or Gyoku but that is as far as I have been able to get. It has a fabulous colour, a glossy patina and would undoubtedly make a great addition to a collection of netsuke.
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 Excellent condition.
It stands about 1.5" / 3.9cms tall.

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 possible, if possible within 3 working 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.
