ANTIQUE NAPOLEONIC POW COW BONE SCRIMSHAW DOMINO BOX NR


I MAY have two days of listings this week so please check again on Friday just in case. I will be selling a number of interesting antiques including tribal art, Chinese, Islamic, Indian and European antiques. PLEASE NOTE: This auction is in GB Pounds Sterling.

This is a fantastic antique Napoleonic prisoner of war work beef or mutton bone domino box dating to the early 19th Century. It contains a double seven domino set (a few are missing). Unlike most of the domino boxes I come across this example is in quite a rare book form and has most of its original polychrome red, blue and green remaining in dot and circle motifs and to the spine of the book. The inside is carved to represent the leaves of the book and it has a sliding lid to both sides of the box.

For those new to the idea of prisoner of war work such pieces were made by French prisoners kept in English prisons from 1795-1815. They used left over soup bones, straw, and anything else that came to hand to make miniature tools; pipe tampers; domino boxes; jewellery boxes; elaborate models; automatons and many other works of art which they then sold at special markets to improve their living standards.

A superb and rare example, I am selling it at a very low starting price and with no reserve.

Please read down the entire listing for Dimensions, Condition, Postage & Payment Details - most of the information you will need is here on this page but please get in touch if you don't find what you are looking for.



Condition & Dimensions



Very good overall condition. One or two small repairs as photographed and a few of the dominoes are missing but in general it is in great shape.

It measures about 4.5" / 11.5cms long.

Postage & Packing



For your peace of mind and mine items will be sent fully insured. I will be posting from WEDNESDAY 5TH OCTOBER to MONDAY 10TH OCTOBER so payment must be received by SUNDAY 9TH 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 lot to post and I do pack carefully!

Please bear in mind that any delays by the postal services either at my end or abroad are rarely my fault. I always 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 currently takes about 3-7 working days within Europe and 10- 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.



UK: Special Delivery: £6.90 GBP.

Europe: £11.61.- Royal Mail Signed For Airmail. This figure includeS £2.50 for insurance over £46 GBP. This is a signed for service which offers full or limited tracking (depending on your country).

U.S. and Rest Of World: £13.82 GBP.- Royal Mail Signed For Airmail. This figure includeS £2.50 for insurance over £46 GBP. This is a signed for service which offers full or limited tracking (depending on your country) and insurance. Please do not ask me to falsify customs documents, thank you.



Where possible I will of course combine shipping for multiple purchases (however if, for example, you win a walking stick and a box of some description this wouldn't be very practical!).

Please enquire with postage queries, requirements or any other questions you may have prior to bidding.



Payment Details (Important: Please Read)



UK: PayPal.


Rest Of The World: PayPal only.


In the event of a recorded/traceable and insured item going missing in the post I will do everything in my power (provide proof of postage and evidence of value, etc.) to assist in obtaining a full refund from the postal service involved.





Finally, thank you for taking a look at my auction and please have a look at the other antiques I am auctioning this week including three fine Zulu snuff spoons; two very good antique Chinese bronze censers; a very interesting collection of Pre-Columbian / ancient Native American bead necklaces; a very fine painted toleware snuff box in the Stobwasser style; a Napoleonic prisoner of war domino box and tool; Japanese staghorn and wood kiseruzutsu; an Indian sandalwood box; a coquilla nut snuff and scent box and other antiques from around the world.
