Stylised Travertine Elephant Envelope Holder by Mannelli Brothers 'circa 1970s'

About

Stylised travertine elephant envelope holder by Mannelli brothers 'circa 1970s'. Designed by Italians, Fratelli Mannelli, this charming piece has loads of character and will delight art lovers and collectors. It is not only visually alluring with soft Minimalist curves and lines, but tactile as well. This may be displayed as a sculptural work of art or used as a functional envelope holder on your desk. Relatively weighty given its size with characterful marbling and natural cracking of the stone. In good vintage condition commensurate with age. Upon request, a video of the piece may be provided. About the artists: The Mannelli brothers created wonderful pieces from Travertine, a form of limestone found in several places in Europe. In Italy it is located in the heart of the Province of Siena, in the quaint village of Rapolano Terme. Not all pieces are signed or marked. If you see these pieces marked with 'Raymor', this was the label of the American importer of the Brothers Mannelli's pieces. Fratelli Mannelli also designed for Marble Art, from Marta in the Province of Viterbo in the region of Latium, Italy. Dimensions: H 11 cm (4.3") W 3 cm (1.2") L 12.5 cm (4.9").
