With its trunk held high and a stately stance, this Republican Elephant Ornament symbolizes more than just a political affiliation, it also represents a slice of American history. Standing at 4 inches tall, this glass elephant ornament is a gleaming silvery gray, with a studded blanket of red and blue, complete with white stars to reflect the nation’s flag.

Tracing its roots back to 1874 through the creative mind of political cartoonist Thomas Nast, the elephant has stood as a symbol of the Republican Party, embodying strength, dignity, and intelligence. It signifies a commitment to economic conservation and the maintenance of law and order, as initially depicted in Nast's cartoons.

This ornament, with the elephant rearing up, mirrors the Republican Party’s approach to politics—unyielding and formidable. Adorning your tree with this ornament brings not just festive cheer but a touch of political history into your home. It’s an ideal gift for the politically savvy family member or friend in your life who admires the party's values, or as a keepsake for anyone who collects symbols of Americana.

Beyond its political connotations, this ornament stands out with its intricate design and sparkling accents. It will catch the light and the eyes of guests, sparking perhaps not just holiday cheer but also interesting conversations about the political landscape of our nation.

Text on Old World hang tag: The Elephant has been the symbol of the Republican Party since 1874 when political cartoonist Thomas Nast showed an Elephant trampling on inflation and chaos - indicating a party favoring economic conservation and law and order. The Elephant is strong, dignified, and intelligent.
