Height 14⅞ in., 37.8 cm

One elephant with the vase detached with associated old restoration; there are scattered consolidation and small patch repairs to the hind-body and the caparison drape. The other elephant with one tusk tip broke off; general consolidations to the proper left front leg and the proper right hind leg; there are traces of wax near the neck. Both with expected surface wear and scattered minor casting flaws, consistent with age and type.


一件瓶與象身脫離,見連帶老修;象身後半部分及鞍襟見少許加固及小鋪。另一件象一牙尖端小失,左前腿及右後腿見加固,頸部見蠟質殘留。兩件均見正常表面磨損及少許鑄造瑕疵,與年代及品類相符。
