Does anyone know the brand of this made in Germany elephant?
I believe it is from the 1970s.

Similar size to the Merten elephants, probably 1:43 O scale.
They are about 9cm long by about 5-6 cm tall.  These pictures are from an old auction, unfortunately I don't own them.

I guess you don't know the brand? Is the moose hollow or solid?

It looks a bit like (apart from legs being on opposite sides) the elephant on the right of photo of Jean Hoefler box art:

No no, they are really different. The Hoefler one is smaller and soft plastic.

The material of the unknown German ones are more like Vitacup models.

Very interesting elephant! Very Happy

By the way, on the box of Jean Hoffler zoo I see the animals are painted, were they also available in painted version like the one from the picture on the box? scratch

Yes, the models came in painted version, but the paint adheres very badly and easily falls off the soft material Crying or Very sad

I recently obtained two of these unknown German elephants, one is painted the other is just plain ivory plastic.  
They were made in West Germany, does anyone recognize the brand from the sticker?
