    Found this big boy at the thrift this week. I realize that he is a bookend but despite a couple of trips back, could not find his partner. No idea what the history of this fella is. Sorry for the bad picture on the bottom. It says Made in Czechoslovakia. There is a T in a circle. 13871 with a 5 underneath. There is also a partial blue label that I can only read "import".
    Jumbo here is way out of my normal collecting so any guidance is appreciated!
    Happy 4th or July everyone!

      Wow! Thank you so much. I looked and looked but didn't find anything anywhere. I am half tempted to get that other elephant so that my buddy here has a friend. ( but the poor fella looks like he's had a rough time)
      Love the way all the collectors work together. That is why this site is so great.
      Thank you again!!

      Thank you everyone. Yes Jumbo here is quite a looker. Perfect condition too which is always fun. It is always fun to come across something new and different.
