Very nice Irenee Rochard bronze of and Elephant with upraised trunk (some call this the happy Elephant) that is circa 1930 and in excellent condition. Only a couple of minor spots of rub separate this from perfection. Crisp and strongly rendered Irenee Rochard is an extremely well listed artist with sales to $6000 and beyond. Sized at a pleasing 12" long and 10" tall. Great piece deserving a place in any home or collection.
