 Elephant Pull Toy - By Contemporary Folk Artist Michel Fortin

hintonHinton Antiques is located in Washago, Ontario
This folk carving of an elephant by Michel Fortin was based upon the 1964 movie "Jumbo the Circus Sensation". The elephant from the movie has been adapted to the style, construction and texture of the late 19th century pull toys.
A very appealing piece of folk art.
