London's Elephant's - No.7 1/2 in the series



I can't get away from the feeling that I'm cheating a bit here. After all, they are nowhere you can go and visit, but I liked them so much I thought they had to join the party. I'll compromise and post this as an extra to the series, hence the "7 1/2".

They were on sale at the Hampton Court Flower Show (see yesterday), and they appear to be having a wonderful time splashing about. I didn't dare ask how much they were.

Hehehe they seem to be having so much fun! How much would they cost anyways...are they expensive? They are made of stone right?

They are bronze. Price, at a guess? The smallest one - £10,000. Although I have to tell you that does not make them the most expensive London elephants - they arrive next time.

The little ones are so captivating. Are those real antique ivory tusks on the adult figure?

Kim, they are all bronze with different patination. Ivory would be a big no-no!
