Large Vintage Carved Vase or Urn with Elephant Heads as Handles, Made in Italy

Chinoiserie, definition. The imitation or evocation of Chinese motifs and techniques in Western art, furniture, and architecture, especially in the 18th century.

I’m not certain what this stunningly beautiful vase is made of; researching it finds it variously described as “Cast & Carved Marble Composite”, soapstone, “celluloid”, and resin.

This is an ornate and intricately carved (or perhaps molded) ivory-colored vase that features handles shaped as elephant heads and two different raised relief village landscape scenes, as well as a footed pedestal. .

Dimensions: 12″ high x 9 3/4″ at its widest (from elephant head to elephant head). It weighs about 10 pounds.

Condition: Excellent!  No chips, cracks or other damage found. 

FIRM Price:  $48.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $2.64, for a total of $50.64.

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.

Our Apologies, But Holds Over 24 Hours Must Now Provide a 50% Deposit: As we’ve gotten busier, I’m spending a great deal of time juggling multiple requests for the same item.  Most of the time, something comes up in the customer’s life that prevents him or her from getting here, but sometimes I never do here from them again. And in the meantime, other customers who are asking about the item end up moving on when the chair or art or garden statue or whatever isn’t immediately available.  So without a deposit, I’ll now have to implement a First Come, First Served policy. 

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup. We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $10.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $10.00.  Shipping is $24.00.

For other options, please review our most recent blog on Possible Delivery Options in the Next Week (use the search feature), or our Shipping & Delivery page at https://heritagecollectiblesmaine.com/details-shipping-information/.

Buying Details:  We are very low tech.  Payment can be made via PayPal, good check (please allow 1 week to clear if not known to us) or cash.
