HANS BOLLING Optimist & Pessimist Teak Figures, Denmark


Pair of teak wood sculptures/carvings by Hans Bolling. They are marked Hans Bolling, Orskov & Co. Denmark on the bottoms. These are iconic 1960s-70s Danish Modern figures for your Mid-Century bookshelf and are authentic items from Denmark, not copies. One is known as the Optimist, and the other the Pessimist. You'll be able to figure it out by their posture and facial expressions. They make a nice set. They measure about 5" high and are both in excellent condition.

RETURNS: Please read the details of my return policy by clicking on the "Read Details" link under Return Policy near the top of the auction.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Any import duties, taxes or charges that may be applicable in your country are not included in the item price or shipping charges. Please check with your country's customs office to determine if any additional costs might apply prior to bidding/buying. Any such charges would be the buyer's responsibility. Also note that we cannot mark merchandise values below actual price or mark items as "gifts", as US and International government regulations prohibit this. Unfortunately, as of 9/22/09 ebay requires sellers to guarantee shipments against loss or breakage. The only way to do this is through insurance, which is only available through Priority Mail. Tfore, First Class International shipping can no longer be offered unless you send me an email specifically requesting this option and releasing me from liability for loss or damage.
