A beautiful bronze box composed of 3 elements: a removable head, a character (mahout) fixed to the back of the animal and an elephant moulded into a single block.
Beautifully crafted, unusual, a laughing elephant with the tusks above the trunk.
High quality bronze creation, cast with fine chisels, circa late 19th century and probably before, from Southeast Asia, and it was most likely made in Vietnam.
A piece with a real artistic value! The head is mobile allowing to show different expressions.
Maximum height: 21 cm.
Length: 36.5 cm.
Width: 11.5 cm.
Beautifully preserved patina and all elements. Very little damages or loss of patina. The mahout was fixed back about ten years ago. Some light original casting defects.
Weight without sturdy and secure packaging: 4.450 kg.
