Sterling Silver Model Elephant - Vintage 1973


This exceptional vintage cast sterling silver ornament has been realistically modelled in the form of an elephant.

This vintage silver ornament has been embellished with details reproducing the fine definition of the elephant's skin and anatomical features.

The model is further ornamented with a pair of gem-set eyes.

Such elephant ornaments, crafted in silver with an upward facing trunk, are highly uncommon and unusual.

NOTE: Whilst an elephant ornament is symbolic of protection, strength and good luck, the trunk plays a role in the deeper meaning. An elephant will lift its trunk to greet friends and express gladness, thus artwork depicting an upward pointing trunk is said to apportion energy, luck, well-being and kindness.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the elephant's leg are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of vintage silverware.
