These are a fine pair of rare Art Deco Poole pottery elephant bookends dating to the late 1920 - early 1930s.
They were designed by Harold Brownsworth (1885 - 1964).
They are very stylish pieces - fitting pieces for display on a shelf in Poirot's office.
They have an early Carter, Stabler and Adams mark on the base (filled in with glaze), as photographed.
The colour is a beige-pink or buff tone - with dark brown tiny flecks all over.
They are offered in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, staining, crazing or repairs.
Height: 6 1/2 inches. Length is 7 1/2 inches. Depth is 3 1/4 inches.
Unpacked each weighs 1 kg in weight.
Sadly, these would probably be for UK posting only (unless postage separately in two parcels, please enquire).
The condition (and rarity) of these fine items is reflected in my asking price.
