In excellent, smoked condition with no damage. Particularly well carved bowl head, the stem with some bite marks.
Shaped as horse shoes and intended for wall hanging, an unusual pair of frames, presumably intended for equestrian subjects. Composed of a very hard plaster or composition substance, these items are in very good condition and requiring glass and wooden back.
The interior velvet lined with the surface decorated in geometric squares of mother of pearl, two small pieces of which are missing. The front central cartouche in silver and not engraved. The hinge working well with small signs of wear. All in all a fair example of this pattern of card case.
A quality African carving depicting a fierce one-on-one attack by a lion, grasping the back of a buffalo. The sculpture itself showing much movement with the facial expressions of the two animals very lifelike to the situation. An excellent patina to the whole group. Height 9.5", overall width 10".
A very good example of a veneered cheese sleigh in beechwood, not often found. The photographs tell the story, including a small area of veneer missing. However, this example in good condition and ready to show off your Fromage this Christmas.
This example with ivory handle, in very good condition and brush intact.
Copper base with turned wooden handle, this implement used for hand washing (possing) clothes in soapy water by pounding up and down as an alternative to a washboard. In very good condition, the copper base stamped with the model 'Simplex No. 6' being the smallest of its type, the copper base and wooden handle becoming larger as the model number reduced.
A very tactile piece carved as a lion or similar wild cat in a green jadite, approx. 4" long and with no damage.
Of quality manufacture, this figure is unusual in that the body is of solid horn. The fish is pivoted in the bird's beak to good effect and the detail throughout the model is very good. Not to be confused with the hollow horn tourist items cut from horn section.
Good quality although probably not of great age. Contained in a slide top box and ready to help you lose your shirt !
