A pair of carved Ebony Elephant bookends.

Sri Lanka.

Circa 1950

Height: 18cm

$320 Pair

The pair of bookends would have been made in what was once the British colony of Ceylon or what we know of today as Sri Lanka, which has a long history of wood carving.

In the late 1900s when Sri Lanka was still under British rule there were companies who employed carvers in factories where they would mass produce, by hand, carved wooden souvenirs which would then be exported across Asia and to Africa.
