Around 1920-1940 - Good condition

Weight: 560 grams. Length: 53 cm.
Ivory tusk carved in the shape of a crocodile with a gaping mouth.
Magnificently sculpted on an ebony wood stand: typical for the production around 1920.
A tiny piece of the ivory tusk depicting a crocodile is missing, have a look at picture 11, but this does not spoil the splendid expression nor the character of this object.

A certificate signed by Jan Wolter Vandenberg will be delivered with the lot.
This item complies with the CITES regulations because it was crafted before 1947.

NO SHIPPING OUTSIDE OF EUROPE

Bidders need to be aware that several countries do not allow importing objects derived from endangered and other protected species, even if a certificate of origin is provided. By bidding, you confirm that you have familiarised yourself with customs laws and regulations of your own country.

    Slechte verkoper. Item kapot aangekomen. Verkoper reageert nergens op.

    Beste Heer Kooiers,
    U laat 14 dagen na aankomst via Catawiki aan mij weten dat er iets gebeurd is met de verzending , eerst en vooral niet persoonlijk aan mezelf en zonder enig bewijs : fotos van het betreffende voorwerp .En U vraagt me een schadevergoeding van 70 euro .
    Ik heb je onmiddellijk hierop een antwoord gestuurd met de vraag voor een Fysiek bewijs . Na een maand stuurde U mij via Catawiki een paar onduidelijke ,nietszeggende fotos .Ondertussen heb ik met Yussuf van de klantendienst een lange briefwisseling gehad , maar U gaf nooit Thuis.
    Zodanig vervelend zelfs dat Catawiki deze zaak in mijn voordeel heeft uitgesproken, en U volledig in Uw ongelijk heeft gesteld .
    Mij dan een Slechte verkoper noemen en iemand , die nergens op reageert is laag bij de grond , Pollemanneke .U zou beter de waarheid vertellen , en uw negatief omvormen in een positief of neutraal .
    Dat zou U sieren na al deze hoop ellende ,waar U mooi buiten beeld bleef .
