    I acquired this whimsical antique pottery elephant as part of an auction lot a few months ago. By appearance I would date it to the early 20th century but have been unable to identify the mark. It measures about 7.5" in length. Welcome comments and suggestions re maker. Thanks

      I found the mark! Made by Kieler Kunst Keramik, circa 1900-24

      Here is a link, but I think yours may have an older mark than some pieces I saw when googled
