Farnell

                                                     
Fantastic and rare grey tipped mohair Farnell jointed dressed elephant. 'Arthur'


This rare Farnell elephant is
based on Jean de Brunhoff's Babar the Elephant stories
depicting 'Arthur' who was Celestes younger brother and the uncle of Babars children.

Arthur stands at 11" tall and is five ways jointed and completely wood wool stuffed.
His overall condition is very good with tipped grey mohair on his head, arms and legs
with a cloth body and felt feet. He is wearing his original sailors jacket which has a
repaired hole at the front and a small stitched repair on one sleeve and he has red
 cotton trousers which
may be original or possibly later home made replacements and
 they are in excellent condition. There is a small repair on
Arthurs left shoulder and
 his eyes are r
eplacements which suit him very well and he also has two small pinholes,
 one on his left foot and one on the tip of his trunk, but he is in otherwise very good,
original
condition and is an extremely rare example of these Farnell elephants.

He has the blue and white embroidered Farnell label on his left foot pad and the Babar
 stories
were first published in 1931 so he probably dates from the early to mid 1930's.

The last photo is a Brunhoff illustration showing 'Arthur' sitting at the right
 of the table scoffing cakes and wearing his red and white sailor suit.



Arthur the elephant is being offered with a very reasonable
 'Buy it Now' price for such a rare and sought after toy
but as ever I am open to all sensible offers.
