ELEPHANTS ON DISPLAY

 

Charlotte Roth shares her elephant collection with Maud Marks Library this month. This is a collection that was started when she was a baby. Her dad worked in commercial upholsteries and brought homes a sample of lush velvet. Her mom made an elephant for Charlotte. She still has it today.   The second elephant was given to her by her husband who suggested she start a collection. Her diverse and whimsical collection has elephants of every size, material, and ornamentation from all over the world. Charlotte enjoys her collection. She says, “Elephants never forget and I try not to forget”.
