Rare 1920s Elephant in Uranium Glass/Green - Hocking Glass

This elephant was made by the Hocking Glass Company and came filled with bath salts - a special order for Avon Company for their top sales representative (only 36 were made for Avon) - and it is now assumed that after the contract with Avon was filled this item became a regular line of Hocking Glass.

The height is 3 l/2 inches tall and the length is 6 inches long.

The color is light green and it will glow under black light as it was made with uranium glass.

The cover is missing but still this is a rare item even without the cover. Can be used to hold candy or flowers.

No chip, cracks or repairs. No top.

Someone wrote to request documentation that this is Hocking Glass. The documentation is from Glass Animals and Figurines by Debbie & Randy Coe, published by Schiffer Books. Also I can provide two links from an internet site showing this item being sold at auction and sold as Hocking Glass. Please note that in the 1920's Hocking expanded to tableware and household novelties.

A second documentation :a picture can be found in Glass Animals, Second Edition by Dick and Pat Spencer.
