Hi, it was made by the company Jostra. Fritz Reeg, the husband of Josephs sister Ida, may well have been the glassblower, production started pre war and continued afterwards. The schnapps elephant for Mampe is explicitly mentioned in the life and works of the Traut brothers.

Nice one Frank, the odds are good that this elephant is by Max Traut. Most of the bottles on that page are his.
cheers

Max traut born 1900 the 8th son started work in 1919, traded as Matra Original 1933-55  among other names.
"The eighth son Max born 1900 had founded his own glass workshop by 1919 making hand blown perfume bottles, he attracted the connoisseurs of the glass world with his new product ranges of vases and bowls in the forms of snakes and animals and single bloom vases."
you were spot on with the other post Frank all the brothers were trained scientific glassblowers of the highest standard. The quality of their work led to one of their companies setting the standard for scientific glass.
