And the spout resembles the elephant trunk.

There is an elephant on top too!

At the bottom of the body of the teapot, there are intricate flower petals design.

I believe this teapot had been used. Perhaps by an upper class Indian family to showing off their wealth. It could also been used by a British family who lives in India during the colonial times. Although no sign of makers name or any significance ownership of this teapot.
