VERY UNUSUAL ANTIQUE OTTOMAN? TURKISH ISLAMIC DEEPLY CARVED WOODEN BOX NR!
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 heavily and deeply carved antique Turkish wooden box with stylised floral designs which seem to take inspiration from the patterns found on Iznik pottery. The handmade hinges and metal latch add to its rustic appeal but the quality of the carving should not be underestimated with the numerous roundels each filled with a different design and the remainder of the box meticulously carved with a honeycomb-like pattern. I don't think the box is ancient, it was probably made towards the end of the Ottoman empire, probably late 19th or early 20th Century but it certainly is impressive and 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 a second chance offer. 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 Very good overall condition. Some age related splitting to the body of the box and other minor wear.

It stands about 9.5" / 24cms tall and has a diameter across the base of about 4.1" / 10.5cms.

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 only): £7.75 GBP.

UK: Special Delivery: £9.25 GBP.

Europe: £12.70. Royal Mail Signed For Airmail. This figure does not include £2.60 for insurance over £50 GBP. This is a signed for service which offers full or limited tracking (depending on your country).

U.S. and Rest Of World: £16.20 GBP. Royal Mail Signed For Airmail. This figure does not include £2.60 for insurance over £50 GBP. 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.***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.*** 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!).

Payment Details (Important: Please Read) UK: PayPal.
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 fine Mangbetu figure; an excellent Zulu status staff and several knobkerries; a rare coquilla nut snuff box; a superb chinese Ming dynasty jade twin handled cup; a very good Japanese Kobe toy and one for repair; a great boxwood netsuke; a Tabwa figural staff; an old Ibo figure; a Fijian ula throwing club; Aboriginal boomerangs, message sticks; 2 Kuba cups; unusual Maori carvings; Spanish colonial silver and many more interesting antiques from around the world.***
