This old figural pencil sharpener is a red Bakelite or Catalin elephant with a rhinestone eye. Note that his truck is up which is suppose to be a symbol of good luck. The red plastic is mottled with yellow giving it the appearance of being a reddish orange. A small sharpening blade is screwed to the back. I find no country of origin.
It measures just over 1 ½” from trunk to tail and by 1” high by 3/8” thick and is in very nice condition with good color and minor scuff wear. The blade is clean and there is no damage.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
