Why can't donkeys and elephants just get along, even though they are vintage plant markers or garden stakes? How about some bi-partisanship here, guys?

The vintage figurines are made of hollow glazed ceramic. They each sit on a sharpened, slender, natural wooden stick with a wooden label wired to it. The figures are attached to the sticks with permanent glue. The ends of the natural twig stakes can be resharpened or shortened if necessary with a sharp knife.

The elephant figurine is 1 7/8" and 15" with the stick. The donkey figurine is 3" and 16" with the stick. They have a shiny glaze. They are in great condition- no chips.

They would do best in an indoor plant or outside under a covered patio, but could take some weathering if they were brought in during the rainy/cold season. The wooden labels can be written on with pencil or permanent marker like a Sharpie. Eventually the sticks will naturally deteriorate and need to be replaced by carefully removing the stick from the figurine with a sharp knife and hot gluing another similar natural stick into the hole on the bottom.

Democrat donkey or Republican elephant, can't you just get along?
