This elephant form paperweight is solid bronze. It has 'UVC, CO' on one side. The details in this paperweight are well molded. It looks like an attractive little bronze sculpture. I do not know for sure what the uvc co mark stands for. There are some small dents and scratches from age and use but nothing beyond normal wear. This elephant has a nice dark aged patina. I believe it is most likely from the early to mid 20th century. This vintage paperweight is a wonderful little elephant sculpture.
