Sparred Kites.

A small number of sparred kites are available. One of each of these so open to offers…..

These items are available on a ‘Blind Auction’ basis. Please assess the value of the item to yourself and place a bid accordingly. Please don’t ask what other bids there are. I will close the offer process when I consider the bid to be high enough.


Item 14: A Traditional Dragon Kite.

This Dragon Kite has a pristine head that has never been assembled. The body of the dragon has 60 sections and the disks are OK. As there is no insect damage to the disks I suspect they are polyester fabric? The stabilising feathers are showing their age and would benefit from some renovation.

The head is roughly a 12″/ 310mm cube. The horns are just slotted into place for the photograph and would need fitting properly before use.

The body of the dragon. The disks are approx 6″/ 150mm in diameter, the stabilisers are approx 28″/ 710mm overall.

Head and Body together.

Only ONE of these and offers accepted.
