RARE ANTIQUE ISLAMIC PERSIAN CARVED COCO DE MER KASHKUL DERVISH BEGGING BOWL
Happy New Year to everyone! I will be selling a large number of interesting antiques including Tribal art, Chinese, Japanese, and European antiques. I will be selling over two days so please check again on FRIDAY as there will certainly be more pieces for sale in all categories. PLEASE NOTE: This sale is in GB Pounds Sterling.
This is an interesting coco de mer kashkul or alms bowl of a type, with a handle, I haven't seen very often. I would imagine that it was for a travelling dervish or similar and with a hole as a spout at one end could easily double up as a pouring vessel, perhaps with religious significance. I would imagine that it dates to the early part of the 20th Century and the coco de mer is in fantastic condition with a superb black colour and glossy patina.

Postage & Packing For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 30TH JANUARY to MONDAY 4TH FEBRUARY so payment must please be received by SUNDAY 3RD at the very latest. PLEASE be a little patient with the post - I will get them posted asap but I work on my own, often have a fair amount to post and I do pack carefully.
Any delays by the postal services either at my end or abroad are rarely my fault. Barring incident I 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 9 - 14 working days to the U.S. / rest of the world. If speed is of the essence then I can use a courier (DHL / FEDEX etc.) but prices for couriers start at around £30 / £40GBP for the very smallest object and VERY quickly escalate depending on size, weight and destination. Please note also that there has been a considerable hike in postage prices by the Royal Mail this year. I add on very little, often not enough to cover the packaging materials, so the price I quote really is as fair as possible.
