This circus elephant is made of pottery and hand decorated. I believe it is a string and ribbon dispenser.Perhaps I'm wrong and it was intended for a different use. It measures about 4 1/2" tall and is almost 7" long. It has a moon shaped slit behind each ear and two 1/2" holes on its behind. Most of the bottom area is open. Heavily crazed, and a tiny fleabite on one ear (just noticed). More pictures upon request.
