SUPERB CHINESE CARVED JADE JADEITE / HARDSTONE CENSER COVER & WOODEN STAND NR!
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 a very good quality Chinese censer with twin bulls facing outwards and the lid also carved with a bull / cow. There is a lot of detail in the carving with openwork lingzhi fungus or other similar plantlife trailing from the bulls' mouths, typical integrally carved rings suspended from each side and many other high quality details. The stone is more likely to be bowenite or serpentine and probably not jade but it has a good mottled celadon colour nonetheless and is extremely decorative. The wooden stand is also well carved and was certainly made specifically for this piece. This is a fine piece of vintage Chinese art and I am selling it at a very low starting price and with . I am selling it at a very low starting price and with . ** Please note: My photos are taken with a good quality digital camera and my computer is one of the most colour accurate models on the market however there can always be a slight difference between what I see on my computer and what you see on yours and, with jade and hardstone in particular, I would like all my customers to bear this in mind when coming to offer, thank you.
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. A couple of tiny nibbles to the inside edge of the lid and one or two tiny chips which are almost impossible to see elsewhere to the censer but no serious damage and no repairs.
It stands about 6.25" / 15.8cms tall including the stand and measures about 5.5" / 14cms across.

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 GBP only): $17.05 USD.
UK: Special Delivery: $18.60 USD.
Europe: Royal Mail international signed for (insured to $77.50 USD only): $24.20 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): $33.50 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.
***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.***
