    There are several similar elephants, one marked or labeled "Made in Taiwan" but the trunk points up instead of straight out and the bottom is not ground, one by Tiara that is sometimes called an ashtray because it is missing its cover but it is a covered trinket dish and the trunk points up, and another much more crudely made in milk glass with or without metal eyes and a trunk that points up. My version has a ground bottom, the trunk points straight and it comes in at least three sizes: 4.75" tall x 7.5" long; 3" tall x 5.5" long; 2.25" tall x 4" long. Mine is the mid-sized one. All except the Tiara made elephant may be made in Taiwan, but I have never seen one like mine marked or labeled.

      Hi Dena. This style did not have a lid. 90% certain it is an ashtray. It might also work as a pipe rest.
