Elephants are the New Owls!

I, NEED these!
The triumphant trumpet of an elephant held in time as the foot of this innovative flute, balancing between tusk and trunk. 24K gold or sterling silver-plated pewter pachyderms support crystal flute.

Created especially for Vivre by Philippe Chupin in the tradition of the "cul sec" glasses of the Black Forest during the 17th century. Glassware was presented upside down—to avoid being poisoned—and following, the feet of the glasses became very decorative, often with ornate heads of animals.
I ALWAYS have a threat of being poisoned, this is exactly what I need!
