A soldier’s souvenir, hand carved with tusks.
This carved elephant is 3 inches high and painted on both sides. We know where it came from, but know who made it, or who bought it. Never-the-less, it represents, in my opinion, what really good local souvenirs looked like.
The elephant has been enhanced with a pair of tusks, made from wood, not ivory.
The condition is very good, with light wear.
Who knows, it could have been brought home by one of Merrill’s Marauders.
