« on: June 14, 2008, 02:36:51 PM »
Jade or Jadeite glass elephant for zoo if of any interest, came from a lady at carboot who was selling a collection of elephants this the only one in glass, does not glow under a UV light, the detail looks quite good,I do not have a clue to age or maker, seems to have a small rough pontil mark to the underside, length 3.25" or 7 cm, height just over 7cm

My son has one like this which came back with my parents some weeks ago from their European trip - bought in Hungary, Poland or Czech Republic - not sure which. I'll try and find out.
