The wooden monkey made of teak/limba wood was designed by the award winning Danish designer/silversmith Kay Bojesen all the way back in 1951.That's probably one of the reason it's so expensive.His creations are collector's items today.He has also made other wooden creations, like a bear, an elephant, a zebra and different guardsmen.There's also a much larger version of the wooden monkey sold for DKK 7,950!Today, the wooden monkey is made by Danish company Rosendahl: http://www.rosendahl.com/Default.aspx?ID=506&GroupID=TR_KB&AreaID=8The Kay Bojesen silverware is still made today: http://www.kaybojesensilver.com
I'm totally with you on this one. That is a dumb monkey. $140! Danish prices are ridiculous!
