This cast iron elephant is painted silver. It is depicted with its trunk raised over its head. Elephants use their trunks to greet each other, to comfort younger family members, and to express feelings. Because of this in western cultures an elephant with its trunk up is believed to be a sign of luck, prosperity and kindness. The silver paint on this elephant is not original. The piece is from the early 20th century but the silver paint was probably added after mid century. The paint has chipping. Also there is a gash in the elephants back. I believe this piece is from a set of bookends but it is rather heavy weighing 3 pounds 3 ounces. This is a nice good luck elephant statue.
