1940's FOLK ART ELEPHANT & HOWDAH from INDIA
This was sent to a relative in the late 1940's as a Christmas and New Year's greeting. If you use a loupe and look at the forehead of the elephant t is actually a photo of the couple sending this as a greeting!
Made of wood and painted with some paper decoration this measures 9 x 3 1/2 x 10 3/4" tall. A great piece of folk art!
