Seller: sunnyjkw (4,831) 100%, Location: Kew Gardens, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 391458135182 Condition: Commensurate with age, Material: Clay, Provenance: Ownership History Not Available, Details: Offered for your consideration is this very rare ancient figure from Tang Dynasty (618-906 AD). 9 inches tall, complete with entire figure. Note there are signs of repair at the neck and waist area. Purchased from an estate who was a world traveler. Apparently this was purchased in Hong Kong in the 1990s. The certificate of antiquity was issued by Hong Kong Art Craft Merchant Association and dated Nov 1st, 1996. Shipping methods: I offer multiple shipping methods. Please do scroll to the shipment page to find out the most optimized shipping method to your area. If you choose the default USPS parcel post, I assume you will be OK for me to upgrade to USPS priority mail or UPS ground at no extra charge. Shipping Charge: Shipping included delivery confirmation and maybe insurance if final price over $50. Item over $250 includes signature confirmation. Combined Shipping: Additional item is no extra charge or actual increment of shipping cost if heavy items are combined. Shipping time: I usually ship on Saturdays. So for some, I ship very quick if paid on Friday, and for those who made payments on a Saturday afternoon after P.O.s close, the shipping handling time could be a week -- that's why I don't list anything on Fridays, so that you have at least 24 hours to pay and I have 24 hours to pack. If you need your treasure shipped right away during the week, I can make arrangements -- please email for options. Returns: There are enough pictures plus text description to present the item (in my opinion) and to observe genuine auction spirit, no returns accepted unless misrepresented. Please do not hesitate to email with questions if you feel more information is necessary.
