Seller: carld1846 (6,592) 100%, Location: Surfers Paradise, QLD, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 143343111078 An exquisite antique Japanese hair slide. Meiji period circa late 1890s. The hair slide is carved with a whimsical face that looks like a monkey. The surrounds look like they are leaves. The back is also carved. This is a hair slide superbly carved. Please inspect my photographs to see what I mean. The hair slide belonged to a geisha. The material used looks a bit like bone but it isn’t bone so I am not sure what is it made of. It is definitely not plastic or Bakelite. It is an interesting piece I picked up from a back street antique shop when I visited Kobe many years ago. Length: 14 cm Weight: 6.3 grams 'Most of my collection is one of a kind. I bought the items because I liked it for myself. They were never intended to be resold. Each item has a story and when possible, I hand carried in my luggage from all over the world to bring back to Australia. Some of the items have travelled a long way away and some of the items has been with me for 65 years. I am now retired and need to downsize. I will not be able to buy a similar item again and definitely not able to sell it at the same price. If you buy an item from me it most likely is the only one I have. Not only you are buying an item you are also buying 50 years of experience. Thanks for bidding.' I only accept Paypal. I have a 5 business days shipping policy however if I can send earlier I will. Thank you. I am happy to combine postage. Check out my other items! Be sure to add me to your favourites list! Colour: Beige, Originating Region: Japan, Original/Reproduction: Original, Era: 1890s
