Large Art Deco Onyx & Bronze Elephant Desk Inkstand Set w. Letter Opener & Stamp

US$2,132.16per set

About

Beautiful, large and remarkably complete antique Art Deco desk set, circa 1920. If you are a collector of decorative antiques in general and Art Deco ones in particular then this stunning onyx marble and bronze specimen could be flying your way soon. Things become even more interesting if you have (a close friend with) a passion for elephants, because this colorful and stylish stand also comes with a top quality made and realistic elephant sculpture. To have found this finest inkstand in such complete and near mint condition makes it even more special and it could be gracing your home or office soon. Besides the large and impressive inkstand itself there also is a stamp with a monogram (probably the monogram of the first and very well to do owner), an onyx and brass letter opener and a stylish Art Deco letter rack. With the many fine details all around this sizeable antique set is beautiful to look at from every angle. That quality in the details and the overal balance of the 'composition' mixed with the elegance of the antique, green onyx marble is what makes this aesthetically pleasing inkstand a real gem and it also makes a great gift for a wildlife enthousiast. Have you also noticed the inkwells with the perfect bronze and onyx lids? They too could not be in better condition and one even has the original glass liner. If you like this antique stand as much as we do then you will, again, love our price. Also, because our price for this unique antique includes perfect packing and also worldwide delivery from our store to your door in just 4 to 6 days. Maximum width x height x depth: 17.7 x 5.2 x 9.5 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for stylish yet practical and for craftsmanship of years gone by. Your purchases will be extremely well packaged and we look forward to serving you (again).
