Probably Germany

Object: Openable Sculpture Depicting Life Scenes of Moses
Material: Ivory
Estimated Period: Nineteenth century
Country of Origin: Probably Germany
Condition: Excellent condition - barely used with minimal signs of aging & wear

A wonderfully sculpted and carved European ivory sculpture, depicting the figure of Moses with book, the bottom of the body has two doors with two friars depicted on the two sides inside, and a nativity scene in the centre.

Mounted on a circular wooden base.

It is a rare object, suitable for top collectors of European sculpture, sacred art and antique ivory pieces.

based on the style, patina of material and technique, I would say it’s from the 19th century, made in Northern Europe (probably Germany).

Height: 27 cm (wooden base included)

Perfect condition.

Sold together with certificate by expert Vincenzo Merchionne, owner of an important art gallery in Italy, specialising in ivory sculptures and Asian art.

The certificate will be sent with the lot.

Tracked and insured shipping.

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.

    Spedizione rapida e senza problemi. Ho trovato eccessivo il costo della spedizione (29 euro Italia-Italia) considerato anche il tipo di imballaggio con cui è stato spedito l'oggetto.

  • Het pakket was extreem goed ingepakt. Over 3 van de 6 auto modellen moet ik nog controleren of het zilver is.
    In de toekomst moet niet alleen het gewicht maar ook de grootte worden vermeld.
