Ive collected many elephants over the years. I would say well over 100 made of all types of materials but some of my favorites are ceramic lusterware elephants made in Japan in the 1930s.
This elephant was made to be a creamer for tea but it can also be used as a planter. The sky-blue luster finish looks excellent on this piece along with the 22kt gold and red & Oriental yellow accents.
The elephant is medium in size and it is 6 ½” long x 3” tall. The entire elephant is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or signs of wear. There are no chips, flea bites, cracks, or crazing. The bottom is signed Made in Japan.
