Elk Island National Park Bison Souvenirs
Wonderful RARE pair of Elk Island National Park bison statue souvenirs. One buffalo statue has “Elk Island Park, Alberta” carved into the rocks of the statue, while the other does not. There is some color variation in the browns but they measure the same and are a good match. One statue has an original sticker from Marbolex Reg’d by Danesi Arts (1937-1975), a Toronto plaster and pottery giftware manufacturer. Their ceramic items (produced from 1955) were cast from original designs created by founder Primo Danesi or commercial moulds.
Overall, these are in good condition for their age. There is some minor chipping on the base and some other spots of one. They both appear to have some cracks in the paint on the legs. Possibly have been repaired but if so, it was done well. A great set for a vintage souvenir collector!
Specs: they each measure 10 1/4 inches high, 10 1/2 inches long, and 3 3/4 inches in depth. They are quite weighty but could be shipped if desired. Please get in touch for a quote.
