Here is one of Basil Matthews' vintage Arts and Crafts elephants. As always, his figurines have great personality and details. Beautiful blue eyes and abstract blue circles on the body. Stands about 2-3/4-inches tall. In very good condition except one tusk has been glued on and some crazing which is not unusual for vintage pottery. Displays beautifully. On the bottom it is signed along with the number 15.
Go to my store to see more Basil Matthews figurines.
Basil Matthews sculpted from solid clay; there were no slip castings used.
Each piece is completely made by hand, and each piece is signed.
Since they were all hand decorated, no two are exactly the same, so yours will be unique. His figurines are very highly prized and becoming harder to find.
I appreciate and thank you for taking the time to look. Have a wonderful day.
