1920 Filligree Chinese Cricket Cages in Sterling Silver

$425.00


Offered here, 19th century Chinese sterling silver octagonal cricket cages mounted on reticulated ball feet. Snug fitting dome lids. These objects are rare, beautiful, and prized by all who own them. Made by hand painstakingly from silver wire, the filigree technique once employed in Southern China is a marvel. Chinese loved to keep crickets as pets whether for their singing or their fighting. Crickets are considered good luck. These cages are made by two makers, but likely during a very similar time period and certainly within the same province. Some examples of the medium sized box have rarely emerged on the market, but the larger box should be considered extremely rare and choice. Buy one alone or buy them together.

The medium size box is 105.6 grams.
74mm x 74mm x 92mm tall.

The large size box is 164.1 grams.
66mm x 85mm long 98mm tall.

这里提供19世纪的中国纯银八角板球笼,安装在网状球脚上。贴身圆顶盖。这些物品是罕见的,美丽的,并且拥有它们的所有人都珍惜。由银丝精心手工制作,曾在华南地区使用的花丝技术令人惊叹。无论是唱歌还是战斗,中国人都喜欢将蟋蟀作为宠物。蟋蟀被认为是好运。这些笼子由两个制造商制造,但可能在非常相似的时间段内,当然也在同一个省内。市场上很少出现中型箱子的一些例子,但是较大的箱子应该被认为是非常罕见的选择。单独购买一个或一起购买。

Privacy policy

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support; when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list; if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years from the date of this policy (May 20, 2018).

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Nate Ivey, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at neurorocker@gmail.com.
