This cute collectible elephant egg cup is from the Art Deco period and has a semi- opaque lustre glaze. The shade varies from a pale biscuit orange on one side to a stronger semi opaque on the other as it has been somewhat misapplied. He also looks slightly unbalanced as the weight of his egg appears to be tipping him slightly backwards.His eyes are painted black.These characteristics all add great charm and whimsy to this collectible item
He is in very good vintage condition with no chips .There is normal slight crazing and odd specks under the glaze which would have been there at the time of manufacture. All of these are commensurate with age and use. I do advise being very careful when washing him and personally would not use him everyday. He will be quite happy sitting on a shelf in a new home. There is no mark on the base,and I suspect he may have been made in the Far East.

He measures 2-5/8ths ins (6.7cm) high.The bowl is 1-5/8ths ins (4cm) in diameter.Base is 1-1/2ins (3.8cm) long.He takes a large hen's egg.

He comes from a non-smoking, pet free environment. Do please check my terms and conditions before purchase.He will be safely shipped in a brand new, clip lock lid plastic container which the customer can use afterwards.Please convo me if you wish to see what the container looks like Shipping is UK second class and non tracked airmail. .
A previous customer says
" the packaging was great - I can't imagine a more impregnable defense against the vagaries and abuses of the international postal system. Plus I now have a nifty little container to put something in"

As a proud member of the British Sellers on Etsy Team, I and my fellow team mates wish to protest about the massive increase in postal charges effective from 30th April 2012 which has been forced upon us.


Thanks for looking
