Designed by Abraham Palatnik (Brazil b 1928), this lucite elephant is one of a series of animals produced by him in the 1970's. They are whimsical, modernist in design, and represent his sense of fun and interest in Op Art of the era. Palatnik is known for both his painting and sculpture, and was often at the forefront of modernist expression in Brazil. The elephant is in excellent condition, and still retains the original "made in Brazil" tag on the foot (though section is worn off)...

In very good condition, this matching pair of Quimper plates measure 8 1/2" and are signed on the back HB Quimper Frnce, with a + and a dot, which appears to be a mark done prior to 1940. There is very slight glaze wear to the rims of the plate and one plate has a pock mark that appears to have been made during firing (visible in photos). With nice bright colors on a creamy white slip, this pair is a good example of the charm and artfulness of this renowned French maker.
