This is a really cool very old piece I got from an auction. It is a yellow or mustard colored glazed elephant bookend. It is marked on the bottom Made by? Teacher of Ceramics at Smith High School (something I can't read) and what looks like Pa. 1932. You can tell it is real old by the wonderful age glaze crazing. It has imperfections in the craftsmanship that make it even more desirable. It is a very heavy poured piece and has no chips or cracks...

This is a very ornate old Victorian piece. It appears to be bronze or brass and then has gold gilding or leaf over the top. It has what looks like 6 rubies and either 2 blue opaline or turquoise cabochon jewels. It has a pen rest on the tray and an inkwell, but the lid is missing. Still it is a lovely old piece. I don't know the maker as I can find no marks on it. It does have a screw in the bottom that look like it was added to tighten up one of the pen rests...
