Click here to see all my listed items Welcome !!! Well, this is my NINTH year as an Ebay seller. It is hard to believe that so much time and so many of my goods have reached your collections from my years of collected goods. It is a lot of work to haul these goods out from the boxes and scan, photograph and prepare them for sale, but harder to let go things that have taken me all these years in Asia to accumulate. At least I will be able to have had the pleasure to gather them over the years and cherish the memories associated with their finding. I hope that all of you have been pleased with over 3400 on my feedback. Now I will offer some special lots that I did not want to let go of at first. Hope you all can find some nice things for all of your treasured collections. .......................................................... This is a UNIQUE Classical Nepalese Animal LOCK ( LION ) made more than 30 years ago in Nepal. It has a PERFECT patina,and was acquired from a village near where I worked in 1978. This very old piece has beautiful patina, is uncleaned. You will not find anything like this again. This lock is a 3-piece, simple and pick-proof lock with NO moving parts. The shell makes the lock work by using a unique key that cannot be copied or picked. It is 7.5 cm ( 3.0 inches ) long, 5 cm ( 2.0 inches ) tall at the hoop and , 1.3 cm ( .5 inches) thick and weighs 85 grams. The patina is perfect and uncleaned. This is one exceptionally beautiful and solid piece of handcrafting. The lock works by shoving the key in the front of the lock and pushing until the tail piece comes out making it able to be put in the lock loos of a door or cabinet. Neat work from many travels in South and SE Asia ! No one else will get anything like this.
