Vintage Elephant Bar


I've recovered from obsessing over the vintage Gucci picnic set and moved on to this 1940s elephant bar, created for an English diplomat who clearly spent some time in the bush and had a big living room. Standing some four feet tall, this leather replica has a presence and originality that you won't find at the mall. My guess is the gent liked his Scotch, as the bar insert holds only a few bottles and room for an ice bucket.

Available from Mantiques Modern in New York City. Price upon request.
