Rare Gray Eagle hand-carved turtle-shaped fishing lure. Beautiful workmanship on a truly unique item with all pieces intact for $275.00

Vintage Asian earthenware turtle-form covered soup bowls. These are hand painted, so each is slightly different than the others. Some have small bits of paint missing, but all except one are in very good condition. (one has a small chip and hairline crack in the cover that is about 2.5-3 inches long, as seen in photos) I remember Chuck telling me that these hotels (Hongkong and Shainghai Hotels chain) served their turtle soup in them, starting mid 1900’s. A group of 15 of them last sold at a Bonhams Auction back in 2014 for $2,250. I am going to sell these individually for $225 each, the one with the crack for $175. $1000.00 if you want all 5 of them. Very cool items.

Vintage leather turtle wine bottle. A small piece of the leather is missing (see detail photo) but this (rather suggestive!) bottle is a very cool piece. I own a similar bottle, but the leather turtle head is in very rough condition. I could only find one other example on-line and the head was completely missing. Selling this one for $45.00

Bizarre/cool wall hanging, made with a turtle carapace, which I believe is from Papua New Guinea. These normally sell for $150 - $200, but this one has a small break in the ?reed? construction (see detail photo) so I’m offering it for $125.00



If this ad is still up, the item is available; please do not contact me just to ask that.

If you are interested, either call or email (no texts). I usually check my computer a few times each day, or you can often reach me quicker by calling the house phone between 7am and 8pm. (click ‘reply’, then ‘show phone number’)
