Kay Bojesen – Elephant

Kay Bojesen – Elephant c1960’s – stock #15516

An adorable wooden sculpture of an Elephant designed by the Danish artisan Kay Bojesen (1886-1958). This model is from a range of animals design in the early 1950’s which includes the Elephant, Monkey, Bear, Parrot, Dachund and more.

This model is an older example with plastic jointing pegs. I suggest a date of late 1960’s may be early 1970’s. NOT a modern example by Rosendahl.
