One art shipping or storage case

I have quite a few of these in many sizes. Most (around 20) are stored in my loft.

They are all extremely well made, robust, structurally sound and beautifully finished with some minor cosmetic wear from past usage. They have previously been used to ship fine art to the UK.

An example art piece is shown in one photo to add context but please note this listing does NOT include any work of art.

This listing is to bid for one of the 3 cases that are too big for my loft. I will describe all 3 and the winner can choose which one best suits them.

If the auction proves worthwhile I'll re-list the remaining boxes.


If you like the look of the box but want something smaller please message me and I'll detail the other sizes I have available and create a new listing for any one that someone wants. This listing is partly to find out if there is any interest in these items.


The box is robust, made from wood and faced with an oriental, blue, flower and dragon  patterned, silk like cloth on the front and around the sides.
The handle is made from the same cloth and is very strong.
There are 2 hinges on the bottom and 2 clasps on the top.
Red satin ribbons brace the box when open.
A little brass gallery plaque is tacked to each box near the handle.

The back is faced with a green patterned paper.
There is a clear dynatape label with black text on the back facing paper. Removing it may damage the paper.
All these features are visible in the photos.

Inside is padded and lined with a black velvety cloth.
A structural frame in the base stands a little proud ensuring the base and lid always sit square to one another and are secure when closed.

There is some cosmetic wear of the facing materials as it has been used to ship and store art works in the past.

These are all large hefty items but to distinguish them I will refer to them as small medium or large. Measurements are as accurate as I can make them but please consider them approximate:


Small measurements:
Weight: 8.5kg
Outside dimensions (not including fittings): H x W x D - 965 x 1250 x 76mm
Inside dimensions:                                        H x W x D - 925 x 1210 x 45mm


Medium measurements:
Weight: 12.5kg
Outside dimensions (not including fittings): H x W x D - 965 x 1630 x 86mm
Inside dimensions:                                        H x W x D - 930 x 1595 x 60mm


Large measurements:
Weight: 14kg
Outside dimensions (not including fittings): H x W x D - 965 x 1630 x 86mm
Inside dimensions:                                        H x W x D - 930 x 1595 x 60mm


The hinges add about 5mm extra to the height and the clasps add about 15mm


Please remember to state which case you prefer if you win.

I've checked some UK domestic shipping costs and Yodel will ship any of them for about £25
City Link appears to offer a better price for the smallest one at about £15.

If you want shipping included please contact me for a firmer quote before bidding and specify a preferred carrier if you like.
I won't make a profit on P&P but I may need to add the packaging costs if the carrier doesn't like them "naked" or wants them strapped or wrapped etc.

International bidders: I will consider shipping overseas, but please contact me first for a shipping quote before bidding.

I'm also happy for you to collect in person or to arrange a collection. Cash on collection is acceptable.
I live on the Isle of Dogs, east London, E14
Send an eBay message or phone me on 07879 105900 with any questions.

This listing is sold as is. The item is as described so I will only accept returns if it is shown that it was damaged in shipping. If this is the case you must either note this officially with the courier on receipt or refuse to accept it so that it is clear that the damage occurred during shipping.


Thanks for looking. Happy bidding :-)
