Antique Indian Wooden Elephant Desk Tidy/Pen Tray, C.1920-50s
Antique Indian Ebonized Wood Elephant Desk Tidy/Pen Tray, C.1940s/50s
This delightful desk tidy originates from India and dates to around the middle of the twentieth century. 9.5” long and 4” high, it has a base with a compartment for pens etc, overlooked by a carved elephant with trunk raised, and tusks carved from Ox (ie, cow) bone.
Excellent; there are a couple of marks to the wood from use, and the Ox bone tusks have discoloured – this piece has also been recently waxed and polished.

I have collected glass and ceramics, antiques and antiquities for many years, and my shop philosophy is to sell very good antiques at very low prices very quickly so I do not need to carry much stock; larger shops will charge much more, but take much longer than I do to make a sale. Each to their own, then - but that makes my prices ultra-low compared to a bricks-and-mortar antiques shop.
I try to describe everything I sell as honestly as possible, including any damage, issues, or attributions to a maker, in my descriptions. If you have any questions, a problem with a piece you’ve bought, or even further info on a piece I’m selling (always welcome!) please mail me. Please don’t ever leave negative or neutral response without speaking to me – we can always come to a solution.
