    This was an incredible Christmas gift from my collector friend. I have always wanted to add a large Loetz Elephant to my smaller opalescent elephant. I am blessed to be able to say he is in mint condition and has wonderful red eyes and white tusks! Very blessed to be able to add this rare Loetz Figural elephant to my humble collection. This posting is my 600th posting on CW!
    Special thanks to Brian, for letting go of such a beauty. Very much appreciated :) Also for another friend for finding this piece and saying to me to go for it!!!

      Hi Lee what a beauty I have some Elephants but nothing like this my mouth just dropped open no kidding. I'm hope your Christmas was great & you have a safe New Year may only good things happen for you in 2015.

      You are a star Lee! Such great collections and I always welcome your quality posts.

      This elephant is fantastic - in my Loetz ignorance I never even knew they did animals, but of course they did it with their usual skill and beauty.

      Thanks Marty! Wow.
    13. ozmarty ozmarty, 6 years ago
      I was so excited to be there that i rushed and did not get good pix with my crappy cheap camera .
      Passau is a must !
    14. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 6 years ago
      Antiquerose, many thanks for the loving and attention. This acquisition was a large hurdle for me?

      Wow you should get a plaque or trophy, 600!!!!!! Well here's to 600 more happy hunting:)
    19. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 6 years ago
      Scottvez, this will be hard to top. But I am searching for another cool piece!
    20. Zowie Zowie, 6 years ago
      It would be hard to top Lee but the other day I seen a small jade elephant I have my eye on for when I can afford it & hope it will still be there as I have a small collection myself but not in the same class as yours
