An adorable small art sculpture or ring holder by Hoselton, Canada.
Their smooth minimalist figurines usually depict native Canadian animals, birds and marine animals - but this one is unusual being an elephant. Solid moulded aluminium with a reflective shine. Hoselton say, "Free flow designs carefully hand created from molten recycled aluminum with each piece getting the Hoselton signature to identify it’s quality and authenticity".
Signed underneath - model no #1371 (the model number is shared with a similar mouse figurine). Also maintains its original sticker. Circa 1990s vintage, but could date from any time from the 1970s...
A small size - roughly 8cm tall x 5.5cm long x 3.5cm wide. Used but very good condition. Being a soft metal he's susceptible to marks and scratches, so has some fine surface marks from being pre-loved - see photos. He has a shiny silvery smooth finish. Please excuse my reflections! Perfect for a Minimalist or Modernist or Scandi styled home, and a great addition to a Hoselton collection.
