not PC at all but my hubby acquired two ebony elephants way back in 1963 when he was just a sapling, the wood is gorgeous to feel.

Wow. I wonder if it is non-pc enough to have ivory tusks, eyes and toenails? What do you reckon? I see these ornaments quite a lot in the homes of older people I visit. Heavy too!

yes the tusks etc are of ivory and they are really heavy.

My grandparents had similar elephants.... I don't see it as a problem if it's not new... And besides it looks like a beautiful thing to touch and feel

i nearly bought an 'ebony' elephant in kenya, until i found the carver furiously colouring a blond bit of wood with black 'cherry blossom' boot polish.

this certainly looks the real deal though and is quite beautifully hewn.

my dear old mum has an ebony elephant with ivory tusks, but it does date to the days of gas street lights.
