steep, splurge, steal

Elephant side tables - whether ceramic or rattan - are beautiful conversation pieces and also the perfect height for holding a drink, a book or a small flower arrangement.

An ancient symbol of strength, protection and good luck, the elephant is elegant.

A funny side note: once ICDC caught a buyer for Gore-Dean (before the antiques store shuttered it's DC location) purchasing a painted ceramic elephant side table for $75..only to see the same piece in the store a few weeks later selling for $1,025.  What a mark-up!
