Pair of Ceramic Elephant Form Book Ends
There are no identifying marks to these slip cast elephant form book ends apart from a pencil note to the base of one and also an accompanying stamped number 3 and letter C.
They are nicely modelled and the creamware glaze is attractive. Although probably not weighty enough to deal with a substantial hoard of books they would look handsome either on a mantelpiece or on some bookshelves, but relieved of their duties.
One of the elephants has some damage but the other one is in excellent condition. The damage on the one piece is shown in the photographs.
