V RARE ANTIQUE JAPANESE MEIJI PERIOD KOBE KOBI TOY WOODEN AUTOMATON FIGURE NR!

I haven't had a Kobe toy for a while and this is a particularly good one. It is in a form I haven't had before, that of a drummer whose head moves up and down whilst the mouth of the head below opens and closes with the tongue poking in and out. There are a couple of small things that need putting right but I don't think the job would be too diffucult for someone with a bit of patience and the right tools! This is a rare Kobe toy and I am selling it at a low starting price and with .

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 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.
