    Welcome to the forum, Wishlist.

    They look like they could be Indian soapstone carvings. But there is shading in the folds, which you usually get with glazed ceramics.
    Could you post a photo of the bottoms of the feet? And please click on 'full image' when you do?

    The style is more Southeast Asian, including parts of China. But the material resembles Indian soapstone. If they are stone, that is.
    Indians have been copying other styles, and Indian soapstone carvings are often sold in Chinese souvenir shops.
    The feet look like they were made by someone who was not very familiar with elephants.

    According to a recent Antiques Roadshow English Show, if the eyes are shaped the way yours are they are from China..I am just the messenger..

    Shell cameos that look like any number of modern Italian ones, with ponytails & pert little noses, until you notice the eyes.

    Hi Silverthwait, may I ask you what do you mean with "keep them on your side of the country"
    Do you think they have some value?
    I was looking today online and found interesting article

    Elephant look similar I think, just only made from Imperial bluish-grey jade. I was surprised to see this color of jade.

    Somehow I don't like your tone, If you are for fun then stay away from my posts and don't call me Babe! I feel this tone offensive, If you want to help you are welcome if you will continue offend me I will report you.
    I hope you will understand.

    Komokwa didn't call you 'babe'. That is his signature 'line' under all the dashes.
