    This pink glass elephant head wall pocket or match holder is about 5" high x 4.5" wide x 3.5" deep. No idea where I got this. I really can't decide if it is a match holder or a wall pocket... I used it to christen my "new" 1883 built home in 1997. There is a built in set of shelves and cabinets when you enter the back door, the closest being a broom closet with a drop down ironing board built into the door. I hung this on an already existing nail near the top of the closet and there it has hung for the last 20+ years until I popped it free to take some photos. No idea who made this, but pretty sure that it is American. Maybe a reproduction, maybe not.... I found two on ebay but no information about age, maker, etc. It is not listed in Glass Animals by Dick and Pat Spencer...
