   One owner African elephant for sale!
   I bought this elephant from my biology teacher, Brother Edward Dury, around 1964 in Cincinnati. He was selling various native African items to raise money for another Marianist Brother doing missionary work in Africa. (The other Brother was also Brother Dury -- his brother by birth.)
   Brother Dury died in 1974 and I remember him fondly, but I'm tired of looking at this elephant, and I've dusted it for the last time.
   The body is a hefty chunk of ebony wood, the tusks are legal ivory and I'm not sure if the eyes are painted or small dots of ivory.
   The workmanship is not the best in the world and it rocks slightly when set on a hard, flat surface. It would look nice on YOUR shelf. Thanks for looking.

My terms are very simple. I strongly prefer USPO money orders, but will accept anything I can deposit. Lack of email response or slow payment will result in a relisted auction. All your payment will be cheerfully refunded if my description is wrong. Your bid price minus eBay costs will be cheerfully refunded if you decide to return the item for any other reason. I have never used negative feedback, and hope I never need to. To read my full terms, go here.

If you have information to add or questions regarding the auction,
please email me jayel@juno.com at least 24 hours before the auction ends.
Thank You.

Shipping in the US is usually by Priority Mail. Heavy items may ship cheaper by UPS. Shipping outside the U.S.A. is usually less expensive and less trouble by mail. Insurance is figured into the cost of shipping unless the winner has a special need to skip insurance. In every case the winner pays only the actual cost of packing supplies (usually zero) plus shipping. I do not charge for handling and packing, and I'm always glad to combine shipping, so please check my other sales : HERE.
