Adjustable - Sliding Hand Carved Wood - Wooden Bookends
with an Elephant on each end. Purchased from a Local Estate - age unknown.
Marked on back
MADE IN INDIA
These bookends are in GREAT condition.
There are a couple of small cracks/splits in the wood
on the base that one of the elephants stands on.
However, I do not believe this to be damage -
but rather splits that were in the wood when the item
It is not a structural issue and is not even visible
unless you look hard to find it -
but I wanted to mention it for accuracy.
Very ornately carved.
Nice floral pattern carved
on the wood "shelf" portion of the bookends.
Slides to adjust size to accomodate more or fewer books.
When fully explanded, measures approx. 21".
When closed to smallest size, approx. 13"
Elephant ends around 5 1/2" tall.
Trunks UP for good luck!
Ends fold down to make item flat for storage
(and safe shipping)
Super attractive - I think you will enjoy them!
