Firstly, I would just like to say that I am by no way an expert on this site. Michele (Zooey) should be given credit for her knowledge and painstaking ''investigative'' work associated with all solids etc. I could never ever match the work and knowledge she has put in.

This also applies to Brigitte. I learn from them and other knowledgeable collectors and try to help in the little I have gleaned. So this subject is now closed....

..............
ELEPHANT.

I have checked mine and will double check against the above information from Brigitte and others.

I have the elephant with the red enamel coat, red eyes blue tassle containing BEAUTIFUL. The box is the little gold box with red label on the back

BAR CODE 2713103733


now to double check against the information above.....



This one was isssued in 1992 with the circus box and it was issued at the international market with the same Barcode but a different box in 1993.
Up to about 2002 the international market got the solids only 1 year later than the US market. Some times the items were the same as the US ones, but sometimes they had less rhinestones f.e. the tea cup, the teapot, some of the fruits etc. Mostly they had the same barcode, but they always had a different box, as E.L. took the box from the US issues and they had different labels on the bock of the box. Sometimes they also had different fragrances.

Hello everyone,

first of all, sorry for the confusion with the names....it was Jacky who asked about the Prototypes....I told you before that I'm getting older and I'm afraid not wiser :lol:

ELEPHANT

1991, Beautiful, green eyes and green tassel
1992, Beautiful, red eyes and blue tassel, Circus Box
1992, Private Collection, green eyes and green tassel
1993, Beautiful, red eyes and blue tassel, Box is different from the one in 1992
1994, Beautiful, blue eyes and blue tassel
1994, Tuscany, blue eyes and blue tassel
1994, White Linen, blue eyes and blue tassel

Tried to do my very best to not mix up anything :o

Well, I'm confused once again (doesn't take much :huh: ). Brigette, Zooey, Jacky, anyone who can help?! I just saw an auction on ebay for a 2002 Golden Elephant containing Beautiful MIBB. The photo in the auction shows a white box, a circus box and the elephant has a red blanket, red eye and blue tassel. Was the Elephant reissued in 2002? Is the seller the one who is confused? Sorry to keep asking but enquiring minds want to know!
Thank you so much!
Wendy
p.s. I have no information on barcodes! :P

Hello Wendy,

I also took another look when I saw the box as I had not seen the box with this particular solid. I have the solid but in a different box...

The sellers are not collectors so they can make a mistake.

Funny you brought this up as I did do a double take....

Take care and thanks Brigitte for your explanation.

:huh:

Dear Brigette and Jacky,
Another big thank you for your prompt answers! According to the listing this seller is selling on behalf of a collector (she also sold the rare 1994 Butterfly) but I still wonder when the date is SO far off. The seller is also listing empty boxes for compacts she has already sold that the collector "just found". :blink:

Enough of elephants! Brigette, I love to spend time on your site - you've done an amazing job! Of course, I've spotted the 1994 Kitten with the gold collar that contains Tuscany per Donna. Please forgive me for being so bold as to ask if you have an extra (even without a box!)? My "Cats" scene is missing that one and I would love to be able to add it. Please let me know and I completely understand if one is not available. Thank you!

I hope everyone has a blessed holiday (as it applies) and a relaxing weekend!
Wendy :)

Hi Wendy,

this black cat on pillow was issued in different years and with different fragrances:

1993 with Beautiful, Knowing and Spellbound
1994 with Tuscany and White Linen

Here comes the link for the so called cat meaow, pink

EBAY: CAT MEOW

which was issued in 1995 with Pleasures. I think $ 115.00 is not too bad of a price, as the original price was $ 200.00.

Sorry, but I don't have an extra one.

Take care, Brigitte

Hello, again, Brigette!
Thank you again for all your help and I apologize for not being clear about the Kitten compact I am searching for - it's the 1994 beige enamel sleeping Kitten with a gold collar containing Tuscany per Donna. I think it must be a rather rare one or all the cat lovers are keeping theirs!Thank you for your patience and for your graciousness!
Take care, also,
Wendy

O.k. Wendy,

the one you mean was issued in 1995 INTERNATIONAL only and contained Tuscany per donna, but it's collar is brownish and not golden.

Oh, Brigette, that's the one - he's beautiful! Thanks for all the effort of providing the photos and for the information that he was an international release. I will have to hunt for him abroad!
Much appreciation,
Wendy :D
