a Bruce Sedley collectible "trunkey" the elephant key. these novelty keys were used to activate the many talking storybooks placed throughout the San Francisco Zoo and zoos across the country. the key itself is in very good condition and paper tag has some wear and a few pencil marks.

Sedley's design-patented Talking Storybooks were installed at the San Francisco Zoo from 1959 through the 1960s, but were replaced later by other "Talking Storybook" devices.

note: the yellow tag color is showing up a few shades darker.
