    Hi! I bought this item in a little antique/retro shop in Prague. Both elefants and the palmtrees are in glass but the base is in plastic. The palmtrees are made of glaspearls that are thread on a copperthread and tied undernneath the plastic base. It is 12cm High. Has anyone got an Idea where it comes from?

      It may get well be another factory but this will help you get a feel for them. Kitsch but ....
