    Hi, I inherited this Glass elephant recently and don't know much about it. I lost my mother recently and she had this for as long as I can remember.
    I always thought it was pretty and it was special to my mother. My Grandfather died in World War II, from some Collector's said it might be Japanese, it could be, I know my grandpa sent some things home while he was in the Navy. I also thought it might be carnival glass. Haven't been able to find one like this anywhere on the internet. I'd really like to know more information on it.

    Thank-You !!!

      Hi wksgibson,
      Thank-you for your comment, Do you happen to know what kind of glass this is?

      To all my fellow collector's Does anyone happen to know what kind of glass this elephant is made of. I checked it out but can't seem to find any kind of marking on it. I'd really like to know the history on this, or if it's very old? I believe it was handed down from my Grandmother to my mom but I'm really not sure. My Grandmother passed away at 93 so if it was passed down I'm assuming that it is pretty old but I thought if it was something of value it would have some kind of stamp or markings on it. Either way it's valuable to me. If anyone has any info on this II'd greatly appreciate it.

      Hi Lisa. I think this elephant is posssibly 1950s Japanese, made by Sasaki or Hoya Crystal. I am leaning more toward Sasaki.

      The Japanese were very fond of these dishes/pipe rests/ashtrays with animal bodies, and they commonly came in clear or more rarely amber glass.
      I have not seen an elephant exactly like this before so this attribution is not definite. The other possibility is Czech or French glass, although less likely.

      You might like to search vintage glass elephant dish (Japanese, Czech, French) in Google images and see what happens. Lots of searching with different descriptions may turn it up!

      Use it and think of your Mum and Nan!
