Ornate 5-In ELEPHANT TRINKET BOX Kneeling, Round Basket - eBay (item 310020891352 end time Feb-12-08 18:26:34 PST)
This ornate trinket box is a kneeling elephant with upraised trunk and a round basket on his back. I think it's made of composition, which seems like a light weight fake ceramic material. I see no maker's mark anywhere.
The inner box is a half round almost three inches across and half that deep. It measures 4 1/2 inches long, almost 3 1/2 inches wide and 5 1/2 inches high.
The elephant is wearing elaborate side panels and the basket has a woven reed design with curlicues and fringe. I've had it for awhile and I like it, but never found something wonderful for it to hold. Maybe you can figure something great to put in it.
