These ebony relics of the period have been highly prized ever since. CONDITION: The ebony is in perfect condition with no chips or cracks, it has a very high polish. The clock movement is not in working order. MY EBONY: If you have any questions please get in touch. I am a specialist dealer in ebony vanity items so please see my other stock.
