V FINE ANTIQUE CHINESE CARVED BLACK HARDSTONE DOG OF FO GROUP NOT JADE SOAPSTONE
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 fantastic antique Chinese carved black hardstone dog of fo or shishi group. I feel it could be quite an early piece and is beautifully crafted with three young fo dogs clambering over the adult with lots of movement in the piece, some fine flowing detail in the carving and a very good polish and patina. I am selling it at a very low starting price and with . Please also view the numerous other Chinese jade and hardstone pieces I am selling this week.
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
Numerous old chips as photographed below and other surface wear but it still looks great displayed.
It is about 3" / 7.9cms across by 2.1" / 5.4cms deep and also stands a maximum of about 2.1" / 5.4cms tall so it is quite a chunky example and weighs about 359g unpacked.

Postage & Packing
For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 3RD 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: $14.30 USD.
Europe: Royal Mail international signed for (insured to $77.50 USD only): $19.70 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): $25.10 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 several good pieces of Native American beadwork; some fine Aboriginal clubs; an interesting collection of rare Naga objects; several fine Zulu knobkerries and staffs; a good Japanese Kobe toy; several Chinese jade and hardstone carvings; a fine Tsonga or Shona headrest and snuff bottle; a very rare Nootka basket woven staff and many more interesting antiques from around the world.***
