This Chinese vintage copper alloy small ornament most likely made during the early part of the People's Republic of China, 1949- as I understand from the seller and due to the very nice patina. The elephant skin is made to look real, he is wearing a decorative hat and tapestry, His ears are flapping his trunk curled up and he looks like he is smiling. The tusks remind us to help protect the elephants. It is a great decorative item or a perfect ornament for the collector of animals or elephants. It is made of a copper alloy as mentioned. It probably be cleaned up a bit, but i would not remove the patina and therefore the originality from its age. It has no cracks missing parts, or cracks. Just the age related surface wear with no green spots.
