The trunk and tusks of this beautifully detailed pewter elephant base support a large, light green tinted blown glass 5 1/2"H bowl (which holds 23 fluid ounces to the rim).
Solidly made with a thick base, this could also set as a lovely presentation piece by itself, with a flameless candle or battery operated string lights, a dining table celery/ herb vase, or just filled with tempting flavored rolled wafers. The sky is the limit with this admirably crafted piece.
Origin: Africa (believed to be South Africa); pre-owned
Dimensions: 10 1/2"H x 2 5/8"W opening
Condition: Very Good. Two linear marks (one to the top and one to the bottom, see photos) along with a light 1" surface mark (to the left of the bottom mark). There are various small bubbles, one big, from the hand blowing process (enlarged in the last two photos are the bubbles; they are actually very small, and are not dings, and they do not affect the integrity of the bowl) .
