This piece of tobacciana is a great find. This elephant cigarette holder measures approximately 4 1/2 inches in height and 5 inches wide. He is marked Erphila Germany in a rectangle on the bottom of his foot. This mark was used during the first half of the 20th century. Condition is excellent with no chips, cracks, or repairs on this green beauty. He was made to hold a dozen cigarettes; but could also be used for other things as well. He would look very handsome on a desk holding pens or pencils. A little piece of history and a great addition to your elephant or tobacciana collection.
