Description

A finely modelled Late 19th Century Brass Chimney Ornament depicting "Jumbo", the African Elephant which so captured the imagination and the hearts of the British public during the early 1880's. Born in 1861, Jumbo, then in London Zoo, was sold in 1881 to P.T. Barnum, owner of the Barnum & Bailey Circus, known as "The Greatest Show on Earth", for 10,000 dollars. So great was popular objection when Barnum's proposal became known, that 100,000 school children wrote to Queen Victoria begging her not to sell the elephant. The elephant's fame turned its name into a household word, with "Jumbo size" subsequently coming to mean "very large". ~ Ref. AEVBCOJE-27
