Seller: robs268 (3,271) 100%, Location: Bungay, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 253379112171 THIS ITEM WILL BE POSTED FROM THE U.K. SUPERB ANTIQUE D R CONGO KUBA WOODEN PALM WINE TRIBAL CUP Ex Merton Simpon Coll. It may be a little late but I'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I am selling quite a few pieces this week but as my end of year bookkeeping dragged on for far longer than expected (doesn't it always) I will be listing the vast majority of things tomorrow, Friday 19th so please look back again if you have time. Sorry about that! PLEASE NOTE: This auction is in GB Pounds Sterling. This is a very fine and very old Kuba drinking cup. The face is precisely realised, there are typical Kuba patterns near the base and to the rim of the cup and I particularly like the way the ears have been carved and with this detail I wouldn't be surprised if sculpture by the same hand could be found. It has a superb patina and carries inventory numbers to the underside, one of which may be Merton Simpson's as it came from his collection. It is one of several pieces of tribal art I am selling this week so please view my other auctions. It is my policy not to end standard auctions early with a 'buy it now' and at the end of an auction I will not make second chance offers. 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 Excellent overall condition. Some areas of age related wear, splitting etc but nothing too serious. Please see photos below. It stands about 19cms tall. More than just a pretty picture. Try Vendio Image Hosting. Postage & Packing For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 31ST JANUARY so please make payment as early as possible, ideally within 3 working days. PLEASE be a little patient with the post - I will get them posted asap but I work on my own, have a large 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 7 - 14 working days to the U.S. / rest of the world. If speed is of the essence then I can use a courier (Parcelforce) but prices for couriers start at around £30 / £40GBP for the very smallest object and VERY quickly escalate depending on size, weight and destination. I add on very little, often not enough to cover the packaging materials, so the price I quote really is as fair as possible. Thank you. UK: 1st Class Recorded Delivery: £7.75 GBP. UK: Special Delivery: £9.55 GBP. Europe: Royal Mail Tracked & Signed / Signed: £14. This figure does not include £2.50 for insurance over £50 GBP. This is a signed for service which offers full or limited tracking (depending on your country). World Zone 1 (U.S., Canada etc. please ask) Royal Mail Tracked & Signed: £18.90 GBP. This figure does not include £2.50 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. World Zone 2 (Australia & Asia etc. (please ask)) Royal Mail Signed For Airmail: £19.65 GBP. This figure does not include £2.50 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 bidding.*** 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 auction and please have a look at the other antiques I am auctioning this week including some stag antler netsuke; several pieces of tribal art including African figures, sticks, clubs; some pieces from the Philippines including a large Ifugao Bulul figure; several Norwegian tine boxes; Yoruba Ibeji figures; headrests; masks; a fine Kuba cup from the Merton Simspon collection; Saami pipes; a pair of Native American Northwest Coast carved bone figures and many more interesting antiques from around the world.*** Powered by eBay Turbo Lister Condition: Excellent overall condition.
