Oh my! Talk about the Elephant in the Room!





Elephant Teapot - $15.00  

I purchased this just to say, "Let's talk about the Elephant in the room."

The person I bought it from told me it was Good Luck. Dubious as I am about the concept of Luckiness, I researched the symbol of the elephant. Info shown below.

The teapot is in excellent Keep or Give Condition. It's a beautiful sort of Jade Green color - actually when I first saw it on the shelf I thought it was a Jade Teapot.

There is No Maker's Mark on the pot.

The teapot is 9" wide from the trunk to the turn of the body and 5 3/4" to the knob. Bamboo handle is very sturdy. I haven't filled it but I'm guessing it holds around 6 or so cups of tea.

If you would like to purchase this teapot, please call our office using the number below or email me at Grandma@GrandmaRae.com


In China, India and Africa, the elephant is a symbol for power, dignity, intelligence and peace.

The elephant is generally considered a symbol of good luck and the animal is a symbol of good fortune. Elephants in Asia are symbolizing a kind of divinity and benevolence and that is why in the recent Asia there are still religious ceremonies where offering is made to the elephants, they wash them and anoint them with special oils and pigments so that the community be blessed with good will. They also symbolize wisdom, loyalty, strength, fidelity and longevity.

As a symbol of wisdom, the elephant is said to attain old age and with all its wisdom. The animal is highly revered for its strength and power. With different species, the white elephant having been chosen by Buddha was because he wanted to use it for his many incarnations. The white elephant is a rare animal and their appearance today will still be considered a phenomenon of the gods. It is the most positive animal symbol known with no negative consequence. There are several lessons we can learn from the elephant and these too are used as its symbol: strength, wisdom, solitude, strong sense of loyalty to the family and intelligence. Other communities still consider the Elephant to be a strong symbol of luck. And thus the saying goes keep a lucky elephant at the door to your house so that you can get protection from bad luck.
