I don’t know exactly what happened, but one evening I had a 32 ½” tall elephant-shaped bottle of Chianti and about a half-pound of exceptionally sharp white cheddar cheese, but when I awoke the next morning, the cheese was gone, and the bottle was empty. My best guess is “aliens,” but then again, we’ve not been able to rid our home of sock monkeys, so you never know.

The bottle is in perfect condition, and the labels are intact, though a little worn.

32 ½” is a big bottle of wine, but I’ll be listing an even taller one in a few minutes, so don’t go anyplace.

The elephant is sitting on his fanny, his trunk sticking straight up in the air.

He has tusks, and his trunk has “rings.”

The bottle held 3 liters of wine.

More images and commentary continue below my three "Prime Directives:"
1st: I never, under any circumstances, use a reserve, and rarely do I ask for an opening offer of more than $9.00 (sometimes even less).
2nd: I never end sales early.
3rd: I don’t usually clean, repair, or otherwise monkey around with anything. I push enough dust aside to expose any flaws, but if I discovered it in some dusty attic, you can look forward to a little dust on it when it gets to your house. If it has a flaw or a wart, I'll tell you about it.
So rest easy and have some fun.

Weight = 5 lbs. 4 oz.

I don’t have an exact age, but I think it is around 40 to 50 years old. They are very hard to find.

In a quirky room, filled with kitsch and craziness, it would feel perfectly at home acting as a BIG table lamp. (Start thinking of something to use for a shade.)

NO DISAPPOINTMENTS

GOOD LUCK

As for the taste of the wine that disappeared: Well, from what little I recall, it is very much like what was once said about animal crackers – “Theseanimal crackers are b*llsh*t! This elephant tastes exactly like the giraffe.”

My preferred method of payment is PayPal.

Buyer pays actual cost of fully insured shipping.We are very good packers, so no worries there. We are, however, recycling tree-huggers trying to do our part to save the planet, so the outer box may look like it’s been through the mill. Nevertheless, we use mostly brand new, clean as a whistle, packing materials inside. All Customs forms will state the actual selling price of items shipped internationally.
