This cute baby elephant vintage pottery sprinkler bottle has an adorable smile and an upraised trunk - a sign of good luck. Her deep black eyes are in contrast to her "skin" which is finished in shades of gray. The inside of her large ears, the bottoms of her feet, and the underside of her trunk and inside of her mouth are all in pink. The sprinkle-stopper is rubber with a metal top.

Mothers everywhere in the mid-1900s needed to sprinkle the clothes when ironing - especially before steam irons. This cheery little laundry room pachyderm must have brightened the job. Who could help but smile at her sweet face looking eager to help?

This pottery elephant sprinkler bottle measures 7-1/2 inches tall, 5 inches across the ears, and sits on a 3-1/2 by 3-inch base.

This unmarked sprinkler bottle was made by Cardinal China of New Jersey. Made circa the 1940s, it shows wear on the base and there is a small chip hidden inside the trunk where the sprinkler-stopper goes. The glaze has the beginning of crazing with one line from the back of the head to the top of the tail on the back. This appears to be only in the glaze, but it is impossible to see down inside. There is also a small stain on the back of the head. These are all small defects that do not detract from the fun of this vintage laundry room treasure!
