day 284 -four elephant toys

I love vintage toys. You might already know that.

I had already taken this photo of elephants, when I went to Peter Blake’s exhibition ‘A Museum for Myself’ in the Holbourne Museum last week. One of his collections was of elephant ornaments – ceramic, wooden, plastic, shell, painted, jewelled, carved -about 100 of them. They looked splendid all arranged in a glass case, and the exhibition made me want to organise some of my collections into cases, etc.

Sir Peter Blake is a definite role model for all artistic hoarders!

    As soon as I saw this photo, I thought of Peter Blake’s elephants. I’m sure he would desire these for his collections. I especially like bottom right.
