Tobacco jar in the shape of an elephant

This model of an elephant was made in 1902 at Seaton Pottery in Aberdeen. The elephant is inscribed 'Father's Tobacco 1902' and was probably used as a tobacco jar.

Modelled from cream-coloured earthenware, the elephant is decorated with 'dabbed' coloured glazes.

Seaton Pottery operated between 1868 and 1964 and left a wealth of distinctive wares.
