Anglo Indian Carved Ebony Faux Elephant Tusk Holder and Basket
This is an incredible piece, originally designed to hold an ivory tusk. Animal paw feet, carved Scottish thistles and stylized Prince of Wales feathers, and inlaid ivory cartouches, decorate the body of the basket, all raised on animal paw feet. The elephant tusk designed to be the handle, has been replaced with a faux tusk. A rare and wonderful piece of history from the British colonial days of India.
