This is an impressive bronze Japanese sculpture of a hawk. It is cast in two pieces, the bird and the tree trunk, with the bird having a pin that fits into the branch of the trunk. One claw is broken, having two talons missing. This is something a good restorer can recast to fix the feet. T is a small hole at near the base and a hole on the chest or bottom of the bird. It is about 16 inches high. The shipping weight will be about 19 pounds so please keep shipping in mind when bidding.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING: We post a shipping calculator for shipping and handling costs. The Ebay shipping calculator includes the handling costs. This shipping calculator is the same as what we use to generate packing slips. It also adds insurance, which of course increases as the value goes up. We do combine shipping for a savings. this is usually based on additional weight and handling requirements for the extra items. We do collect handling fee, generally $2.50 cents for smaller items and $4.50 for normal lartger items that require peanuts and purchased boxes. We use priority shipping and handling and offer other shipping options Local pick up is encouraged and no handling or shipping fees would be applied.

INTERNTATIONAL SHIPPING: If you do not have a shipping calculator shipping costs can be requested.

OVERVIEW OF MY TERMS AND CONDITIONS We are committed to providing you with an accurately described and listed item with prompt shipment. We genuinely want our customers to be happy; our 99.5% feedback approval on thousands of eBay transactions shows this. PLEASE NOTE: WE SELL NO ITEM BEFORE AN AUCTION ENDS. PLEASE READ MY DISCLAIMERS AND SHIPPING POLICY AS IT APPLIES WHETHER YOU HAVE READ IT OR NOT. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR SHIPPING POLICY FURTHER DOWN. Reserve, if applicable, will not be disclosed. Conditions of Sale With important and significant exceptions that I will enumerate, the Conditions of Sale are: Item sold is being sold "As Is," all sales being final with no refunds or returns. Due to the volume and variety of the objects we handle we may or may not have expertise to properly list or describe certain items to the satisfaction of the collector. We handle items for consignment much like an auction. It is incumbent upon the buyer to determine if he wants to bid on this item or not. Exceptions to the Conditions of Sale We sell no reproductions or fakes knowingly unless listed as such. I guarantee that my items are genuine and as listed for all items from 1900 forward.

If I list an item as "17th century" it is 17th century, if I list an item as by "Tiffany" it is guaranteed to be by Tiffany, etc. I will NOT warrant antique fakes or copies as long as I do not specifically attribute an item. For example, if I list a vase as: Old Chinese Vase and it is a 19th century copy of a Ming vase, it is not returnable. If I list a vase as being Ming and it turns out to be not, it would be returnable. I will stand behind statements I make in listing as to condition of the item within its objective limits. In other words, if I say something is not chipped, cracked, repaired or broken, I will stand behind it. If I state an item is silver it is silver, if I say it is sterling, 14 karat, etc., I stand behind it. If I make a statement based on either my or another's expertise, I will stand behind it, and it will be clearly stated as an expert opinion. I will stand behind descriptions made as an expert opinion by myself or others, but ONLY under if stated as such.

Statements I make which do not void my Conditions of Sale are thus: Subjective and qualitative descriptions are just that. They are my opinion and are not meant to be a definitive description. These statements are made as personal impressions and an honest attempt to describe this item from a layperson's poi...
