What is elephant collecting about?
Elephant collecting is a multi-faceted experience and
hobby. Because the African elephant and Asian elephant are beloved creatures,
creatures of work and religious reverence, and became so over the ages and by cultures
across the globe, things celebrating the elephant are highly desirable as collectibles.
Because elephants are so popular, just think of all the types of elephant collectibles you
coin collecting: with an elephant theme from ancient
Greece and ancient Rome to current elephant coins
metal, wood, glass, mineral, pottery, porcelain and
ceramic elephant figurines
Disney memorabilia or Disneyana
elephant photos and elephant pictures
GOP (Republican) souvenirs
plates and bowls
stamp collecting from the late 1800s to recent
and scores more!
Add to that all the different artists and
manufacturers that have made elephant items and unique elephant gifts spanning 450 BC (for
example - a Roman coin), to the true
from the Victorian and Art Deco
eras, to Vintage collectibles to recent art and elephant gifts. This list would be
enormous and would include:
Harmony Kingdom figurines
Herend porcelain figurines
Limoges porcelain boxes and figurines
Lladro porcelain figurines
Rookwood figurines and bookends
Franklin Mint figurines and elephant collectibles
Steiff figurines and stuffed elephants
Swarovski crystal figurines
Tuskers elephant figurines
and hundreds more!
This site will help you get involved in this
wonderful hobby by providing information, articles and resources about elephant collecting
and elephant collectibles.
