Large Vintage C1930 Art Deco Phenolic Bakelite Elephant A/f For Restoration For Sale

Hello. Hereis a vintage Art Deco phenolic bakelite elephant.It measures 85mm (just over 3 1/4 inches) and weighs159 grams (5.6 oz). Made of an orangy amber coloured bakelite, it has been tested with Simichrome polish, and is an original Art Deco item from c1930. He is cast & then carved & polished, his eyes are set with tiny black pieces of Bakelite & he has white bakelite tusks. He has quite a lot of damage, so being sold for restoration.

The damage is as follows.His right ear has been broken off &glued on. His leftear has been damaged, part is glued on &part is missing. His trunk has been broken off & reglued. His front feet have a chip missing & his rear feet have been partly broken & reglued. Both tusks have been reattatched at some point, but are complete. His eyes are fine, and he still looks extremely stylish.He has two holes in the base where he was attatched to something in the past, maybe a bookend, or a mascot. He is such a nice looking elephant, and if you know how, then I am sure he would be worth restoring, as he is probably qite rare & unusual.Please see photos to make your own assessment.
