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.
I'm Hector. I'm just coming up to three and a half years old and, although I say it myself, I'm a bit of a looker with a pedigree to prove it. However, my main role is to keep The Boss on his toes. He may know a bit about the antiques trade but it's really Tracey and yours truly who run the show - we just let him believe that he does. So, if you're passing Haugh Head, drop in and say hello and if you happen to have a few (non-chocolate) biscuits in your pocket, all the better.
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.

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 !
