Ngwenya Glass Elephant Single Bookend
This beautiful hand blown and totally fair trade glass elephant bookend was made in the Ngwenya Glass factory in Swaziland.
The elephant bookend is exquisitely made and very heavy! Not only does it make an amazing looking book end but it would be a perfect paperweight too.
As each Ngwenya Glass elephant bookend is individually mouth blown there will be some variation in colour, height and thickness.
The Ngwenya Glass elephant bookends are 100% recycled glass, made from bottles collected by the people of Swaziland. Ngwenya Glass works with the local schools to instil in the children a sense of environmental awareness.
In 1989 Ngwenya Glass launched the Kingdom of Swaziland’s most successful wildlife conservation fund, known as the Ngwenya Rhino & Elephant Fund. A percentage of all Ngwenya Glass sales goes to the fund that runs a refuge for endangered species in the Swaziland lowveld, saving these rare and endangered animals from the brink of extinction.
