Payment & Shipping

These two life-sized terracotta lions each weighed about 450 lbs; they were sold to a buyer in Texas for $10,530 (having bought-in at a major NYC auction house for much less). Although we were originally quoted as much as $3,400, we eventually found a carrier to crate and ship them to the buyer for about $1,000.

Credit card payments will be accepted for a maximum payment of $5,000. Any balance or purchase above the $5,000 limit must be paid by an alternative method. No merchandise will be released until payment in full has been received.
