This is just a quick tip for when, on that random occasion, you are shopping for elephant accessories. Always purchase ones with their trunk up in order to give and receive good luck. True story. Well, at least it's a true superstition. We've had this one for years and was given to us after a friend returned from their travels through India. I felt lucky just receiving the stylish piece made from bronze. I serve tiny things on this tray offering up good luck to my loved one's each time.
