The relationships between figures are fascinating, and sometimes bocages and bases provide the clues to the linkages. This small elelphant, a sweet tubby baby, was recently in John Howard's stock. It was made without a bocage, and it was made by Enoch Wood. Height about 2.5".
If you are yawning, let me assure you that this is invaluable knowledge. Note I said that I know of three other good examples of this elephant. I do know of one more, but the bocage bothered me. Pretty as it looked, it just didn't sit right. One bit was obviously restored, but the rest was good old bocage that had been reattached. So what was wrong? The "good old bocage" was of the type that Ralph Salt used. Enoch Wood never used that bocage, so there was a problem!
One last image that has come my way that must be shared is this little vendor, formerly in the stock of David Boyer and Ivan Mears.
