The Victoria & Albert Museum
This earthenware figure of an elephant with a howdah (the carriage on his back) and a figure seated on top was made in Staffordshire, England in 1886 by an unknown modeler.
The figure has been lead-glazed and is painted with a brilliant palette of enamel colors.
I just love this figure. It's a real treat. And, speaking of treats, we'll have this week's "Treat of the Week" on Friday, so make sure to stop by, then.
