Description:

Glass animal figures have always been a popular collectible starting from the days of carnivals and the literary classic A Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams. Steuben Glass Works in Corning, New York, became a popular maker of these delicate creatures and as one might expect in a house with small children in the 1970s, household decor would not be complete without the presence of a few decorative glass animal figurines. The offered reclining sea otter, rabbit and elephant donned the shelves in the dining room at Graceland as Sam Thompson attests in his accompanying letters (one for each animal). Sam relays that each was given to him by Elvis' Aunt Delta after Elvis' death. The rabbit measures 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 4 inches (10.16 cm) in length, the elephant also measures 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 3 1/4 inches (8.25 cm) in length, and the reclining sea otter measures 1 3/4 inches (4.44 cm) in height and 4 inches (10.16 cm) in length. This Graceland glass menagerie is accompanied by three letters from Sam Thompson and a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: Although not confirmed made by Steuben, each of the animals is in excellent condition with no marks, nicks or scratches.
