This is a wonderful original antique elephant figure snuff bottle. I think it is made of bronze but it may be brass. It's head screws off and it is hollow inside. It measures 2 3/4 inches or 7 cm in length, 1 1/2 inches or 4 cm in height and 1 1/4 inches or 3.3 cm in depth. It is in good condition for it's age and would be a nice addition to a collection. It is quite heavy for it's size and is very well made. It could also possibly be used as a perfume or scent bottle.
