Vintage Hand Carved African Tribal Statue Fertility Goddess 10"+,ebony/ironwood For Sale
I purchased a large collection from an Estate sale of vintage hand carved/crafted wood or clay pottery statues and wall masks.Each piece is a Minimum of 30-40 years old and the man was a world traveler.There's pieces that look African,Indonesian,Asian,Black Americana,and many different Islands.A few of the wood statues may be Ebony wood,some possibly Teak.Some are very heavy.I have 27 sculptures/masks in all and will be listing each one,a few I'm going to group together because they're similar.*Everything from this collection will be listed containing this paragraph.**The glazed ceramic clay masks and Nassau Bahamawooden maskI have listed were frommy own personalcollection & not from this Estate sale.
A vintage hand carved wooden tribal topless lady statue.Measures10" high x 3" wide across chest area.Statue leans a bit to the right upon display.Could easily be fixed with some sanding to bottom of base so it's level.Could also use a good cleaning or polishing but I don't want to attempt it in case I ruin it or someone wants that old type look to the wood.Weighs 10.4 ounces unpacked.*************Added several photos using camera flash,the statue was too dark without the use of flash and didn't show the features very well without flash use************Statue sinks like a rock in water so it's either Ebony or Ironwood.
I ship quickly.If I recieve cleared payment before 2p.m,EST( Monday to Friday),I ship same day and will make several trips to post office if necessary for multiple sales/payments.If payment is recieved after 2 p,m,EST( Monday-Friday),I will ship first thing the next morning.My post office closes at noontime on Saturday,EST.
******I will combine shipping on multiple purchases.If you're offerding/buying more than one item,please wait to be invoiced for combined shipping savings.That's as long as I can pack everything into one box safely without any risk of breakage on fragile items************
*****Please leave response so I know you're item arrived safely:)**********
****I pack very carefully using bubble wrap,foam peanuts,crumpled newspaper or double boxing for fragile items.I take great care to ensure any and all items I ship are secure.I always try to have a buffer zone in between items and the outer box.If any item arrives damaged then it was mishandled during shipping.In the event that happens,contact me ASAP!****
***********Re never overcharge on shipping.I weigh each box I ship using a digital scale to get a close estimate and enter the custom weight when I create the listing.Sometimes due to wrapping material or double boxing,the weight ends up being more than was entered when I listed the item,in that event,I pay for any shipping cost overages.If it weighs less,I will promptly refund the difference.The shipping charge is exactly what the Post Office charges and may be looked up using the USPS postage price calculator.I can't help how much shipping costs these days.Alot of the time I enter a lesser weight in my listings to help save the buyer some $ and I pay extra shipping cost.I never charge a handling fee or a fee for all the boxes,tape and bubble wrap I buy.
I'm fair& honest and will work with a buyer with any issue should one arise during shipping,or if you are unhappy with your purchase.I do my absolute best to describe as accurately and honestly as possible and provide multiple photos of my items from different angles.Please always view zoomed in close ups in case I may miss something,I scrutinize my items as much as possible,pointing out any flaw I see,even if minor.
I live on the East Coast,for buyers from mid U.S.A to West coast,your shipping charges would be higher than if you purchased an item closer to where you live.I weigh items in the shipping box BEFORE packing material is added and enter the CUSTOM weight of just the item and the empty box.AGAIN,I do NOT charge a handling fee or a fee for packing material and in most cases I pay the shipping overage.Any overage paid by a buyer of $1 or more is ALWAYS refunded.Do not offer or buy if you don't like the shipping cost(which is Not my charge but the post offices.I'VE spent hundreds of dollars helping to pay for shipping costs.Get a digital scale,weigh your box when you get it and then look up the actual shipping charge using the USPS postage price calculator and see what the real cost should've been! Really tired of being slammed on shipping charge ratings by buyers from further away.I'm completely honest on cost,which AGAIN is not my charge but the post offices.
