The Great Leon's elephant head table legs

This is one of the decorative table legs used by The Great Leon in his exotic stage settings. The black and white photograph shown here, with the kind agreement of Mike Caveney, is from his book 'The Great Leon: Vaudeville Headliner'. It clearly shows the table legs, and the castors which are on the bottom of the internal metal tube that fits inside the elephant's trunk. Leon put his show on the market in 1936, including the elephants heads. He sold it to Les Levante, who subsequently sold items to the Davenport family.

    • Size
    • The length of the head from the end of the ear to the end of the trunk is 670mm.
