AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL CARVED FISH SCULPTURE / TOTEM
Unusual old Australian aboriginal carved sculpture / totem of a fish (a bream?). Tagged with "EXHIBIT 29" indicating it may have formed part of a collection at some point in its history.
Carved and incised hard wood.
Collection history unknown. Artist unknown. Agewise I am estimating it would probably be 1960's - possibly earlier.
Minor loss to one of the tips of the dorsal fin. Otherwise in excellent condition for age - no splitting, repairs etc evident. Please refer to the photographs for a comprehensive overview of the item's condition and detail.
Wonderful, and unusual, display piece.
DIMENSIONS / WEIGHT, mm / g
285 L x 35 W x 85 H / 300g
Otherwise, any questions - just ask.
more generally ...
I am happy to combine postage where possible/practical.
Please let me know ASAP after your first purchase if you are making multiple purchases and I will accommodate you as best I can.
I only ever charge the actual postage cost as imposed by Australia Post. If I do inadvertently overcharge on postage I will refund the difference.
I do however insist on sending all items as either Registered or Signature on Delivery, as items lost in the postal system are annoying for both you and I.
Always welcome (by prior arrangement) in Hamilton (suburban Brisbane) or other mutually convenient location.
I'm not really seeking to be visited by bad karma at any time in the future and as such I endeavour to conduct all my sales in an ethical, open and transparent manner.
I will describe any defects, condition issues etc to the best of my ability (but by the same token I am by no means an expert in any of the areas I have collected in)
I would like to think that you will not be disappointed with your purchase. If you do have a problem at any point however, please let me know ASAP and we will resolve it.
all the best and many thanks,
