    India Marquetry Wood Bone Elephant Wall Hanging Help w/age cleaning
    15 1/2" X 15 1/2"

    Any guess as to its age and origin?

    Should I clean and polish or leave it alone? 20200715_221320.jpg 20200715_221332.jpg 20200715_221351.jpg 20200715_221355.jpg 20200715_221414.jpg 20200715_221548.jpg 20200715_221633.jpg 20200715_221320.jpg 20200715_221332.jpg 20200715_221351.jpg 20200715_221355.jpg 20200715_221414.jpg 20200715_221548.jpg 20200715_221633.jpg

    If you go on ebay and type in "India marquetry" you will see some listings. Judging by the back it gives off a 70s vibe to me but I could be wrong.

    Looks like they were made just for decor

    A lot of these showed up in the 1970's as table tops etc, but could be from any date after that I suppose. The wood is rosewood BTW.

    The back gives me the feel of plywood I could be wrong. It sort of feels 70th Blooey. Thanks, INH and Rink28. Blooey
